I have browsed over this recipe several times (it's in my "favorites" book), but never gave second thought to making it. I was at my local grocery store, and, while browsing through the magazine section, met a lady who I began to have conversation with. We both LOVE Allrecipes (go figure!) and started talking about recipes we had tried. She suggested this one - with a couple of modifications (i.e. substituting Ghirardelli dark chocolate cake mix and mini chocolate chips, baking in a 9x13 pan and frosting with melted white chocolate chips). I tried her suggestions, except I frosted my cake with Betty Crocker vanilla frosting (I don't care for white chocolate that much). Brought this to work and was surprised to see that it was not devoured (I've brought many dishes to work and they were licked clean), but I think it has to do with timing (I made this in the spring) - everyone is trying to shed those winter pounds : ) I didn't care for this b/c of the dark chocolate flavor (I don't care for the taste, but, b/c I was making this for a crowd, and knowing that dark chocolate is so well-received, I gave it a whirl). I think the batter was better than the finished product (but watch, it is REALLY thick and difficult to mix). One other point to note: use mini chips (I didn't have any on hand). The regular-sized chips don't melt completely. I may make this again (as directed) to see if I like it better. Thanks for sharing!
