Loved it! I took several suggestions that worked very well. I made this in an 8 inch square pan and it was the perfect size. Nothing spilled over, but it was a nice high dense, moist cake. I used half splenda, half sugar. Also, I used lowfat plain yogurt with 1 and a half tsp of vanilla added (a great way to cut sugar cause the 1 cup is more than enough). I used only 6 oz of chips and it is still very chocolaty and full of chips. I made these as muffins once before and 10 oz of chips was way too much for the batter to handle. I cooked this on 375 for about 35 minutes. Thanks for the inspiration!
