Death by Chocolate

I know...I know....this is supposed to be a site with HEALTHY recipes, but come on!!! A girls gotta have her chocolate once in a while. My father found this recipe years ago in a Dom DeLuise cookbook and it has become a tradition for us. This used to be my birthday cake EVERY YEAR and now I make it for my friends birthday's when celebrated over at our house. It is a fantastic chocolate cake and will definitely leave you wanting more!! Enjoy!! You can substitute the Grand Mariner with water if you want, but I gotta tell you, the Grand Mariner makes the cake.

4 eggs
1 cup sour cream
1/8 cup water
½ cup oil
1 chocolate cake mix
1 small box of instant chocolate pudding mix
1 12 oz package of semisweet chocolate chips
¼ cup Grand Marnier

Beat together the eggs, sour cream, water, oil and Grand Marnier. Add the cake mix and the pudding mix. Beat until smooth. Stir in the chocolate chips. Pour into a buttered Bundt pan and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. When cool, sift powdered sugar on top.
