Friday night meeting of Chocoholics Anonymous

Just in time for Sunday dinners, I've decided to dedicate Friday nights to my chocoholics anonymous meeting. But unlike other addict meetings mine is to help maintain a healthy addiction of the first food group, chocolate. These recipes are tried and true Sunday dinner approved.

The first recipe comes from my best friend Jessie and recalled into memory by one of my own little chocoholics in training, who left a sure sign of early addiction on the breakfast table. I've never thought to drink the syrup straight from the bottle, brilliant just brilliant! I hope you enjoy our first recipe, it's just so yummy, moist, and the right amount of chocolate richness.

Hershey's Chocolate Syrup Cake

1/2 c butter, softened
1 c sugar
4 eggs
1 c all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp salt
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 16-oz can Hershey's chocolate syrup

1/2 c butter
1/2 c semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 c sugar
1/3 c evaporated milk
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 c chopped pecans or walnuts

Preheat oven to 350. Grease and flour a 9x13 pan. Using an electric mixer, cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Sift flour, baking powder, and salt together in another bowl. Add to creamed mixture, continuing to beat. Add vanilla and chocolate syrup to batter and mix well. Pour into prepared pan and bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Just before cake is done, prepare frosting. Put butter, chocolate chips, sugar, and evaporated milk in a saucepan over medium heat and bring to a boil. Stirring ingredients together, boil for 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla and nuts. Pour over warm cake. Delicious!
