This was made tonight, and I took to my T-ball baseball team as an after game snack. I also served it with pistachio ice cream too. Definately was a hit. I had to cut it into smaller pieces, since I coach 11 kids, and I have 3 other coaches too. It made the kids forget about dairy queen tonight. LOved the inside with the chocolate chips, flavor, amd the moist ness. Made for PRMR tag.
Wonderful cake! Very tasty, moist and just all around delish. I only used 2/3 c. of mini chips and that was WAY more than enough...any more and I think you lose the pistachio flavor. I also sprinkled the top of the prepared pan with bakers sugar to get a nice "crunch" on the crust. My daughter has already announced I should make this one again!
Well, big dummy me started pouring chips in before looking and realizing they were not mini chips; however, it made no difference. I ended up with about 1/2 cup of regular chips and 1/2 cup mini chips. This was very easy and quick to put together and everyone who has tasted it really likes it. Very moist and the green color really piques curiosity from people. Thanks KIM....I'll be making this one again.
I made this cake today for the ZWT3 and was surprized by tbe moistness. It only took 45 minutes to cook so oven times do vary. The chocolate are a wonderful surprize!
There's definitely green in this here cake [& appropriate for the month of March! What would it be like with a cup of chopped maraschino cherries added during the month of December, I wonder?] Anyway, I did substitute 1/2 cup of chocolate chips & 1/2 cup chopped pistachio nuts for the 1 cup of choc chips, but otherwise followed the recipe, & produced a very moist, tasty cake! Thanks for this posting ~ Will keep the recipe to make again!
This I`ve made before may not be exactly the same but it`s good eats! I left out the chips.And dusted with powdered sugar!
