1box Red Velvet Cake Mixplus ingredients to make cake
1(12-oz)jar chocolate fudge ice cream topping
1(14-oz)can sweetened condensed milk
1(8-oz )package cream cheese, softened
Bake cake in a 9x13-inch pan according to direction on the package.
While cake is baking, mix milk and chocolate fudge topping until well blended. When the cake is done and while it's still hot, poke holes in it with a fork or straw. Pour milk mixture over the cake. Allow cake to cool completely.
To make frosting: Beat softened butter and cream cheese until well blended. Add powdered sugar and vanilla. Beat until creamy.
Spread cream cheese frosting over the top. Chill.
I used a box of Duncan Hines Red Velvet Cake mix.
Use the end of a spoon handle, spatula, or chopstick to poke the holes in the cake. You want the holes to be fairly large to have the glaze seep into the holes. A fork will not make big enough holes.
Make sure to pour the fudge glaze over the cake right after you remove the cake from the oven. The glazes will soak into the cake better if the cake is hot.
This cake is best made the day before and refrigerated overnight. That gives the frosting time to set up.
