A good chocolate dump cake recipe is cherry-cola dump cake from the Betty Crocker website. It requires only maraschino cherries, boxed devil's food cake mix and a carbonated cola beverage.
To make cherry-cola dump cake, pour 1 jar of maraschino cherries and juice into the bottom of a glass baking. In a bowl, mix 1 box of devil's food cake mix with 1 cup of a cola-flavored carbonated beverage. Pour the mixture of the cherries, and bake at 350 F for 35 to 40 minutes. Serve the cake after allowing it to cool for 15 minutes.
Another good recipe used butter in place of the cola beverage. Dump two 20-ounce cans of cherry pie filling into a baking dish, sprinkle 1 box of unprepared devil's food cake mix on top, and drizzle with 3/4 cup of melted butter. Cook at 350 F for 1 hour, and serve with ice cream.
Make a salted caramel-chocolate dump cake by whisking 1 1/2 cup of cold milk into 1 package of instance chocolate pudding. Fold in 1 box of devil's food cake mix, and pour the batter into the bottom of a pan. Sprinkle with 1 1/2 cups of chopped caramels and coarse sea salt. Bake at 350 F for 30 to 40 minutes. Once the cake cools, drizzle with 1 cup of melted semisweet chocolate chips.
