Chocolate Anyone?????

Happy Mother's Day all!  I hope that you all had a fantabulous day.  Today was also extra special in our house because it's my honey's birthday.  So, ofcourse, I made him a cake.  I don't usually have much luck with baking so I was rather worried.  BUT I found an awesome recipe and the cake was a huge success!  In's almost GONE.   It's a recipe that's SO good, that I have to share.  Yes, I know I don't have many followers....but who knows....this may peek some interest. 

YES...those bits that look undercooked are actually chocolate chips!!

1 box devil's food cake
1 4oz chocolate instant pudding
1 small bag of chocolate chips (around 2 cups)
2 eggs
1 3/4 C water
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp almond extract (my personal addition :P)

2 tbsp butter, melted
1 C powdered sugar
3tbsp cocoa powder
3 tbsp warm water

Set oven to 350 degrees.  Grease and flour a large bundt pan.  Set aside.
1. Combine the first three ingredients in a large bowl.  Combine the next 4 in a small bowl, mix well.
2. Add wet ingredients in the small bowl into the dry ingredients in the large bowl.  Combine with a spoon until well mixed.
3.  Pour batter into bundt pan and distribute evenly. 
4.  Bake for 45-55 minutes or until toothpick stuck in center comes out clean.
5.  Let cake cool in pan for 20-25 minutes.

To make glaze:  Mix all ingedients in a bowl until well combined.  Pour over cake and EAT UP!
