Yummy and so easy
I could hardly wait for the pan to cool to try a taste of this snack cake. It was well worth the wait. Nice texture and not too sweet.
Kids love it...
This will certainly appeal to your sweet-tooth! It's not the best recipe I have tried on this site, however, if you are looking for a quick and easy after school snack-this will do the trick! Kids love it. Chocolate and cake, how can they be dissapointed? Tastes good-worth the little amount of effort I put into it!
This cake is soooo good. I like to try diferent chocolate cake recipes, but this is the best ever! Very easy too. Thanks for sharing.

This was excellent. My family loved it. It was very easy and so delicious!
chocolate chip cookie cake
It is a good quick dessert, a little on the sweet side with the melted chocolate chips on top. I would describe it as a chocolate chip cookie cake, and definitely make it again.
I made this dessert today and it is a 10 plus. Very easy to make and the kids loved it. May your fudge topping to go with it and yummmmmy> I rate it a 5+
Chocolate and nuts go well together. This can be made very easily. Great for a snack or company.
no words can descibemy emotions
I LIVE IN VENEZUELA, AND SOME TIMES THE RECIPES ASK FOR INGRIDIENTS THAT WE DON'T HAVE HERE, I FOUND THIS RECIPE VERY EASY, FOR I COULD GET ALL THE INGREDIENTS, I AM GLAD I HAVE YOUR SUBSCRIPTION
I like this very much easy and good!
Great After School Snack
I love making this cake for after school snacks because it not too sweet or too chocolately. It will not ruin your kids appetite for dinner and it is really easy to make. Thanks for great recipes for everyday use.
I love this cake because I always have the ingredients on hand and it is wonderful-so full of flavor. You can make it in no time and don't have to make a frosting, great when you're short on time. My husband always makes such a fuss over how good it is, you'd think it was an effort to make.
My Son liked helping me make this almost as much as he liked eating it. Great kid friendly recipe.
this was a great recipe for little ones,not a dark chocolate for their clothes.a great taste.no big mess.this recipe is good for the new young baker,the measuring is good practice.
easy to make --- we used mini chocolate chips -- they did not sink to the bottom. tasted great at our chocolate-holic party -- a recipe that friends asked for.
The kids love it
this was so very easy to make and the taste was even better. I liked the milk chocolate in it as well. just gave it so much more flavor.
I liked the recipe and have yet to bake it. I am sure I will love baking as well as eating it.
kids love it
This was very easy to make and my kids loved it! Next time I will make a double batch.
It's always good to try something new..and the best part it only takes a short time to prepare.
For some reason my chocolate chips sank to the bottom during baking. The cake was still good but would have been better if the chips had stayed mixed into it.
wonderfully light and tasty
Milk Chocolate Snack Cake
Very good. Really moist. I will make this often.
Quick and tasty
Seemed like a cross between cake and cookie b/c of the brown sugar. It was very quick to put together but did need to bake a little longer. It will be one of the treats my husband requests in the future!
I tried this recipe out and it was delicous and very quick and easy to make.
Very Good Cake
This cake was very good. The whole family loves it. It reminded me of a cake that they used to serve at my high school. I will being making this cake a regular at my house.
Quick Easy and Delicious!
I made this cake for my husband and kids, of course me too... everyone loved it, it took a little bit longer to bake than the recipe states, but once it was ready to eat it was worth it. It's definitely one that will be made rather often in our house.
Easy Snack Cake
The recipe was easy and cake was very good. After spreading the milk chocolate chips on top, I sprinkled with a few more nuts, my brother loves nuts and he thought it was great.
This was a good cake, the melting of the chocolate chips on the top was a nice addition. Basically, the name fits the cake very well.
This was a good after school snack, but I felt it was a little too nutty. The sprinkling of chocolate chips was messy and I ended up sweeping off the chocolate chips. Anyway, ok for a try.
This cake was easy and quick to prepare. Very moist. Be sure to bake it for the full 30 minutes. I had to bake mine more, even though the tester came out clean after 25 minutes.
Milk Chocolate Snack Cake
This was an easy & great cake!! My family & co-workers loved it. I will be making this cake often, it was very moist. The only mistake I made was that when I put the chocolate chips on the cake right out of the oven, I dumped most of them right in the center and it made the center sink in a little. Next time I will make sure to spread them out more evenly.
Milk Chocolate Snack Cake
This cake was wonderful! I will definitely make this again...very soon!
My whole family enjoyed them. I have been asked to make them again.
