Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

Not only is this cake so very easy it's so good! This can also be baked in a 13 x 9-inch baking pan for about 40 minutes or make cupcakes --- frost with your favorite chocolate frosting or see my Kittencal's Chocolate Frosting/Icing if using a devil's food cake mix you may omit the instant coffee granules or for an even deeper chocolate flavor add it in

Delicious, quick, and easy recipe. Everyone loved it! Some of us felt it was best to eat it while the chocolate chips were still a little melted. Depending on weather, within the 2-3 hours after cooled....probably longer during the summer months. I made my cupcakes exactly as the recipe is written. I topped them with Kittencals Chocolate Buttercream. I'll be making this recipe again this morning for my nephews birthday cake.
