1 cake mix, chocolate
1 6 oz. package semisweet chocolate chips

1/2 cup nuts, chopped
Prepare cake according to package directions with the exception of adding the chocolate chips to the batter. Bake in a 9×13 cake pan. Remove cake from pan, cool, then crumble.

Drizzle with 3/4 the chocolate sauce. Add remaining cake crumbs and gently press into cake pan. Spread cake with thawed whipped topping. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
