Chocolate Toffee Bundt Cake

Chocolate Toffee Bundt Cake is an absolutely delectable dessert. This cake is simple and delicious and perfect for a holiday party or just for anytime.

It’s chocolate, in so many wonderful ways. And then it’s topped with toffee.

It’s perfect for those tins of toffee that people give you. As a matter of fact, this cake was made with such a tin that my husband got at work. The toffee was delicious, but how do you eat a whole tin full of toffee. We have a hard time doing it. So, what did we do? I made a super yummy chocolate cake to put that toffee on top of.

Well, that’s enough of me trying to convince you. It’s awesomely delicious and you should make it.
