After the holiday's I end up with an abundance of odds and ends in the baking department that need used...
I had Sweetened Condensed milk and Evaporated milk needing to get out of my cabinet so....
I made this:
Bake the boxed cake
Put your chocolate in a microwave safe bowl for melting.
The recipe states to use a blender...
I didn't at first...but then I saw where it might be easier to pour this mixture from the Carafe as opposed to a bowl.
Melt Chocolate as directions on pkg indicate
Blend milks and sour cream til smooth
Add melted chocolate to blender
Poke holes in Cooled, Baked Cake
Pour some of the mixture over cake
Wait til some of it absorbs then pour more. Keep doing this til you run out of liquid in your blender.
Refrigerate and enjoy!!
Hubby said he would totally eat this again.
**I didn't make chocolate curls like the recipe said...no one seemed to care LOL
And I didn't add cocoa to the Cool Whip either.

Meanwhile, make curls from remaining chocolate.STIR cocoa into COOL WHIP. Frost cake with COOL WHIP mixture; top with chocolate curls. Keep refrigerated.FOOD FACTSTres leches means three milks in Spanish. It is a deliciously moist cake with a distinctive wet texture.SIZE-WISEEnjoy your favorite foods while keeping portion size in mind.HOW TO MAKE CHOCOLATE CURLSMicrowave unwrapped chocolate on HIGH for a few seconds or just until you can smudge the chocolate with your thumb. Hold the chocolate steadily and draw a vegetable peeler slowly across to form curls.
