Oreo-Bottom Double Chocolate Cake Recipe

Chocolate chip cookies, chocolate cookies, malted chocolate balls, dark chocolate chips, strong coffee… these are a few of my favorite things. These delicious things were added to this recipe to bake this dark, rich, moist chocolate cake. Chocolate cake makes me so happy, I totally enjoyed baking and eating this cake with a cup of piping hot black coffee. Cleanup was a breeze; I licked the bowl very clean. Plus, what better way to bond with the kids this long holiday, than getting messy in the kitchen with this recipe. Fun times.
