It’s easy to give the classic Mexican tres leches cake a chocolate twist by substituting cocoa powder for some of the flour. The result is a cool, creamy chocolate treat, a bit like a chocolate icebox cake.

This is lovely tasting and easy to make. Perfect for Valentine's Day.
To Luna7867 and to others who read her/his review, the amounts given for both the sweetened condensed milk and the evaporated milk are correct as written in the recipe. If you look closely you will see a space between the "1 14-oz" and the "1 12 oz". While I agree that it could look to some as 114 and 112, it reads 1(one) 14-oz and 1(one) 12-oz. That said, Luna's recommendations are correct, as is the recipe.
Horrible!!!!!! First off, the reviews above are fake! The amount indicated is practically for a wedding cake. I recommend only 1 can of 14oz sweetened condensed milk and 1 can of evaporated milk. You should add more to your liking. The person who created the 114 oz & 112 oz is crazy. Overall this recipe is Okay not great, will not make again. Heed my warning. I had to sign up for this website just to write this post warning others.
