  • 1 box strawberry cake mix
  • 1 small package instant white chocolate pudding
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips


  • 8 ounce whipped topping
  • 1 jar hot fudge
  • 1 1/2 cups strawberries chopped


  • Mix cake ingredients and then fold in chocolate chips.
  • Use a 9 x 13 pan or 2-9 inch pans for a layered cake.  
  • Bake 30 - 45 minutes at 350 degrees F.  
  • Let cake cool.  Spread whipped topping over cooled cake.  Sprinkle with chopped strawberries and drizzle with hot fudge.


  • Tips for Making Chocolate Covered Strawberry Cake
  • If spreading whipped topping over cake cool completely to prevent whipped topping from melting.  
  • If serving warm (which is delicious) served whipped topping and strawberries on the side, to prevent melting.  Drizzle with hot fudge.
  • Store in the refrigerator, but plan to use quickly.  
  • Keep the mixing process moving so the cake doesn’t have an extended period of time to set up like pudding prior to baking.  
  • Different brands of cake mix take different amounts of time to bake, so check early and often to avoid burning.  Cake is done when a toothpick comes out clean.
  • Keep the cake moist by covering the cake with plastic wrap shortly after it’s been removed from the oven - this will help keep moisture in the keep as it cools.
