This recipe was a hit. It was good the first day, but excellent the next day after it settled in the fridge. The cake and the filling are Hershey's recipes. I didn't like all the junk they put in the topping, so I whipped that up on my own.

- 1 cup sugar
- 1/3 cup HERSHEY'S Cocoa
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 6 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
- 1 cup milk

butter, milk, egg and vanilla. Beat on low speed of mixer until all
ingredients are moistened. Beat on medium speed 2 minutes. Pour batter

- Bake 30 to 35
minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool
10 minutes; remove from pan to wire rack. Cool completely. Prepare
CHOCOLATE FILLING. Cut cake into two thin layers. Place one layer on
