If you love chocolate cake, this is a recipe you will want to try! My mother-in-law makes this chocolate sheet cake for every birthday! It’s a tradition in our family and it’s absolutely yummy. (It’s even better the second day than the first, in my opinion…if there is any left after the first day!) You can add vanilla ice cream for an extra treat or eat just the cake. Both ways are dynamite!
If you need a twist for Valentine’s Day or an anniversary, I used a heart shaped cookie cutter to make the cake look fancier. Metal cookie cutters work best and you could also get creative for birthday parties with other shapes.
