Chocolate and strawberry go together perfectly, so I thought I’d combine the two to make an earthquake cake for Valentine’s Day!  Earthquake cakes are simple to make and one of our favorite types of cake.  We’ve made chocolate fudge, pumpkin, and red velvet too.  All of the combinations have been divine!  If you’ve never tried an earthquake cake, start with this Chocolate Strawberry one and treat your Valentine to something special.


Ingredients are as follows: 

1 box Strawberry Cake Mix  (plus the ingredients needed to prepare the cake)

2 C powdered sugar

1 C semi-sweet chocolate chips
