Repeat Recipe: Double Chocolate Snack Cake

This one is worth repeating... I originally posted it in September 2009 before I was really focused on posting recipes and there were no pictures to accompany the recipe. But I've remedied that this time!

This one is SO good and so easy. It is good "finger food" snack cake - mom used to set this out for us to eat as a snack after school sometimes and it was such a nice treat. Really easy to wrap up and send with someone for a packed lunch too!

I love the topping on this one - the cake itself is nice and tender, but the top has a nice crunch to it and then there are all those lovely chocolaty surprises melted into it! Kent got to make this one mostly himself and was very proud, and he did a great job! It's so much fun to get to share some of these recipes that I grew up enjoying with him now.

Gooey, and crunchy too - warm from the oven.

Eat with a fork or your fingers!
