Hershey's "Perfectly Chocolate" Chocolate Cake

This is the most perfect chocolate cake I have EVER had!!!  My dear friend recommended this recipe to me and I have not used another since ☺ I usually make the frosting as well,  but sometimes my husband requests a bundt today...
I must admit, every time I make a bundt I recall the movie, My Big Fat Greek Wedding!  
If you have not seen it, it's hilarious!!!

 If you are a chocolate cake fan, like me, I HIGHLY recommend that you pick up some Hershey's Cocoa and follow this recipe,  I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!!!
