Whenever I taste these rich, delicious layered bars, I think of my childhood. My parents were missionaries in Thailand, and Mother was able to get these common ingredients there - the squares reminded us of the candy bars back home.

This scrumptious elegant cake is not tricky to prepare since it starts with a boxed mix. With its sweet syrup and fluffy chocolate frosting, it's very rich, so you can cut small slices and still satisfy a crowd.
I've made this cake so many times that I hardly have to look at the recipe anymore! It's my family's favorite chocolate recipe, but now that our children are grown, I often divide the cake into smaller baking pans and freeze one to enjoy later.
