I added a little more cocoa powder and extra vanilla, and man, is it ever chocolately! I'll definitely make it again, but I'll stick to the recipe. :
This recipe is quick, simple & delicious! Just sweet enough to satisfy a craving. We like it served warm with vanilla bean ice cream. I will be making this one alot!
I think this is an easy and very tasty recipe. I used Land o Lakes light butter with canola oil making it even lower in fat. I like that it doesn't make a large cake, just enough!
This is very delisiouce and moist!

I have a thing for peppermint and chocolate. Especially once the holidays roll around. I feel like it’s only acceptable to make chocolate mint treats during the holiday season, so maybe that makes it even more exciting.
