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!

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.
