Texas Sheet Cake

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Color Guard Mom

This is a recipe my mom passed down to me. I don't know where she got it, but it is a big hit with my teen boys and all our friends. It's like a brownie, but it's cake. It's chocolately, but not too much.

Yes it is outstanding! Very moist and delicious! Made it for our Halloween Party! My DD and I decorated it with Candy Corn and the Harvest Mix! Everyone loved it but sadly was so busy didnt get a picture of it. Thanks Color Guard Mom
