Chocolate Blackout Cake

More than two years have passed since my last post. Time sure does fly! Since then, I’ve launched a few different start-up projects, completed my undergraduate degree, and rode around on a Segway in fairly questionable settings.

Chocolate cake with chocolate-cream cheese frosting rolled in chocolate chips and drizzled with white chocolate.

I was confident even as recently as a couple of weeks ago that I wouldn’t share another recipe on IronWhisk. Other projects were taking up all of my time, and ending IronWhisk with precisely one hundred recipes was an appealing idea.
