Triple Chocolate Tres Leche Cake


Triple Chocolate Tres Leches Cake recipeFor the Christmas holiday with Derek’s family, I am always in charge of the desserts. I love that. I think making desserts is more fun than making the rest of the food.  I can not say that I thought of this recipe on my own.  Leave it to Kraft to come up with an awesome super yummy cake.  My Mother-in-Law saw this in their magazine and requested this for Christmas.  It was easy to put together. I definitely used a whole tub of Cool-Whip instead of just a cup cuz who wants just a little bit on their cake???  I prepared the cake the day before and added the Cool-Whip before serving.  The bottom of the cake gets so gooey and tastes like a Hot Fudge Sundae(only just not hot) 🙂  Enjoy!!


  • 1 pkg Devil’s Food Cake Mix (and items to make the cake)
  • 8 oz Semi-Sweet Chocolate
  • 1 can(14oz) Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 1 can(12oz) Evaporated Milk
  • 1/2 C sour cream
  • 1 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder *use a little more if using all of Cool-Whip*
  • 1 C Cool-Whip, thawed *I used the whole tub*

Prepare the cake mix according to the directions on the box.  Cool for 10 minutes and then pierce all over w/ a fork.  (Just like you would a Poke Cake)  Melt chocolate as directed on the package.  Blend milks and sour cream in blender until smooth. Add melted chocolate; blend well.  Pour over cake until mixture is absorbed.  At this point, you can either leave it in the fridge until ready to eat or at least 1 hour.  When ready to serve, mix the cocoa powder and Cool-Whip and spread over cake.

Super yummy and addicting.   Here’s the direct link to Kraft’s page if you need it.
