my hubby's birthday is this weekend and i decided to make him a dessert that would blow him away. he loves ANYTHING chocolate, especially my homemade chocolate chips cookies. now, i make a chocolate chip cookie skillet but i wanted this to be more like a cake, instead of a cookie. i used my vanilla yogurt cake recipe as a base and went to town. while i was in the kitchen cooking, he saw me take out a bag of chocolate chips and said, 'baby, what are you making?' when i told him, his mouth dropped open. needless to say, when he took a bite of the warm chocolate chip cake, he said, 'this is hands down the best cake i have ever had!' i was flattered and cheesin' all big. then i paused and thought about it for a second. he says that with every cake i make! :)
