I've never had a chance to sample this cake—I'm allergic to chocolate!—but everyone, especially my teenage son, tells me it's the best they've eaten. They must be right, because every time I've taken it to a church event or family gathering, someone asks me for the recipe.
My husband and two boys love chocolate chip cookies, but these can take the place of their favorite cookie anytime! Two hints: Don't overbake them, and do use the chocolate chunks or jumbo chips that are available these days—they really make the difference.
This recipe is great during summer when you don't want to turn on the oven, but still want a sweet treat! We own a custom butchering plant and raise Limousin cattle. Our two teenagers are involved in 4-H, showing hogs and steers.
