About the Recipe

My kids love frozen mudslides, made with chocolate ice cream. This is my winter homage to that. It can also be made as six mini-bundts and one small bundt. I often do that so I can gift the minis.

  • 1 box chocolate cake mix

  • 1 box fudge brownie mix

  • 4 eggs, beaten

  • 3/4 cup water

  • 1/2 cup coffee flavored liqueur

  • 1 cup oil
