Dark Chocolate Chip Cake with Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting

Friday was my husband's birthday and he requested a dark chocolate chip cake with chocolate frosting. I did a little researching and found this awesome recipe that was a total hit so i couldn't resist sharing. It tasted so good and the frosting was so tasty. The cake had the perfect amount of sweetness and perfect texture. It wasn't dry, crumbly, or too rich. This recipe is seriously a hit and pretty sure everyone at the party enjoyed this cake and came for seconds. So I hope you find a good excuse to bake this yummy thing!
