If you ever wondered what pastillas would taste like if you added chocolate and then made it into a cake, this is the dessert for you. 

This chocolate cake recipe is infused with chocolate condensed milk, covered in chocolate condensed milk frosting, coated in chocolate sprinkles, and topped with chocolate condensed milk truffles called brigadeiros. Brigadeiros are a Brazilian treat. It's similar to chocolate truffles but made with cocoa powder, condensed milk, and a little butter. It's the candy that tops this decadent cake!  

How's that for an irresistibly overloaded chocolate cake?
