HOW TO MAKE BEST TRIPLE CHOCOLATE CAKE
I love baking from scratch, but when I am in a hurry, or I need to prepare dessert for a large group, I usually always depend on this quick and easy Chocolate Cake Mix recipe. It is the moistest cake you will ever eat. If you are not a baker, you can make this delicious cake and impress your guest. I often prepare this recipe in 12 one cup pound cake pans when I am baking for a large group. Individual cakes make it easier to serve. They also make a great presentation on a large serving tray. No matter which pan you decide to use, you will love this Triple Chocolate Super Moist Cake Mix Cake.
People ask me often what kind of chocolate I use. I have found that the best chocolate I can find in a grocery store is Ghirardelli. I love Ghirardelli chocolate and use it often when baking.

- The easiest way I have found to make ganache is heat the cream and butter to a boil. DO NOT BURN IT. You can heat it for a minute at a time in the microwave.
- Add the chocolate in a separate bowl.
- Pour the hot cream and butter over the chocolate.
- Allow it to sit for 5 minutes.
- Next, whisk the cream and chocolate until very smooth.
