YUMMY!! it was a big hit. But it is very intense, for Chocolate lovers only!! Its called 5x Chocolate cake because there are 5 different Chocolates in it! (The 5th is just grated chocolate sprinkled on top)

In a large bowl, mix together the cake and pudding mix, sour cream, oil, beaten eggs and water. Stir in chocolate chips and pour batter into a well greased bundt pan
