    JELL-O Chocolate Instant Pudding
Heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Beat cake mix, dry pudding mix, eggs, sour cream, oil, and 1/2 cup each flavored instant coffee and water in large bowl with mixer on low speed just until moistened, stopping frequently to scrape bottom and side of bowl. Beat on medium speed 2 minutes or until well blended. Chop 4 chocolate squares; stir into batter. Pour into 2 greased and floured 9-inch round pans.
Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until toothpick inserted in centers comes out clean. Cool in pans 10 minutes. Remove from pans to wire racks; cool completely.
Stir remaining 1/4 cup flavored instant coffee into COOL WHIP. Stack cake layers on plate, spreading COOL WHIP mixture between layers. Microwave butter, corn syrup and remaining chocolate and water in medium microwaveable bowl on high 1-1/2 minutes; stir until chocolate is completely melted. Spread over top of cake, allowing glaze to drip down side.
