Think outside the box with these delectable delights

This twist on a traditional tres leches cake begins with a boxed cake mix. And when one of the tres leches—three milks—poured over the warm cake is chocolate, you know you’re in for sinfully sweet goodness.

1 can evaporated milk (12 ounces)
1 cup chocolate milk
