Has the Chocoholic Met Her Match?


As most of you long time readers know, I'm a chocoholic, so I can hold my chocolate pretty well. See, I freely admit it. I even confessed to most of my greatest sins here.
But when it comes to my chocolate, I like it in the pure candy form. Not really the cake and stuff. So, when I saw this recipe that claimed to be the "The Best Chocolate Sheet Cake Ever". I was highly skeptical as to the truth of such a statement.
Now, I've made something called "Texas Sheet Cake" before, and its alright, but certainly not on my list of favorites. Still, after I saw the amount of sugar vs. flour, I decided, what the heck? I'll give this recipe a shot.
Wowsers! By the time I was done sampling the batter and then the frosting, (What? Isn't that the best part?) I was done. I could not bring myself to sample the finished product... for a while. This thing is rich, very good and very rich. Its so good in fact, that it has to live on top of our fridge or else the following happens.


Just as a warning, this has not made it to the Weight Watchers list yet so if you're trying to watch your weight, I wouldn't recommend this recipe. Still, next time I make it, I think I'll double the frosting batch. Oh ya, now you're talking!!
Of course, I should probably be watching what I eat, making sure I don't gain too much weight... nah! That will have to wait until after the Cadbury Christmas Balls go away. And yes, they are just like the Cadbury Mini Eggs. Oh yum!!
