Directions

Stir in chocolate chips. Pour into a greased and waxed paper-lined 9-in. round baking pan. Bake at 350° for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from the pan to a wire rack to cool completely.
  2. Meanwhile, for filling, combine brown sugar and flour in a small saucepan; stir in milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 3 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the hear; stir in nuts, butter and vanilla; cool completely.
  3. Cut cake widthwise in half. Place one layer on a serving plate. Spread with filling; top with other layer. In a microwave or small saucepan, melt chocolate chips and butter with corn syrup, stirring until smooth. Cool slightly and drizzle over top of cake. Yield: 4-6 servings.
