Directions

    1. Heat convection oven to 300°F (standard oven: 350°F). Grease and flour six 9-inch round baking pans.
    2. Stir together sugar, flour, HERSHEY'S Cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt in large bowl of mixer fitted with paddle attachment. Add eggs, milk, oil and vanilla; mix on medium speed of mixer 2 minutes. Stir in boiling water (batter will be thin). Pour approximately 3 cups (24 oz.) batter into each prepared pan.
    3. Bake 30 to 35 minutes* or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes; remove from pans to wire rack. Cool completely. Freeze cake layers.
    4. To assemble EACH cake, with long serrated knife, cut frozen prepared white cakes horizontally in half (you will have an extra layer to refreeze for another use.) Place one frozen chocolate cake layer on serving plate. Spread 1 cup (10 oz.) HERSHEY'S SPECIAL DARK Fudge Topping evenly over chocolate cake to within 1/2-inch from edge. Place one white cake layer on top, pressing lightly to secure cake layer. Spread 1 cup (10 oz.) HERSHEY'S SPECIAL DARK Fudge Topping evenly over white cake to within 1/2-inch from edge. Place second frozen chocolate cake layer on top, pressing lightly to secure cake layer.
    5. Spread 3 cups (1 lb. 14 oz.) HERSHEY'S Milk Chocolate Fudge Topping evenly on top and sides of EACH cake. Refrigerate or freeze until firm.
    6. Warm remaining 1 cup (10-1/2 oz.) HERSHEY'S SPECIAL DARK Fudge Topping. Spoon over top of cake, allowing topping to drip down sides. Refrigerate or freeze until firm. Cover; refrigerate leftover cake. Makes 12 servings per cake.
    *If using convection oven, rotate pans one-half turn (180°) after 15 minutes of baking.
