Cookie Sheet Chocolate Cake

First off, to my followers, I am SO sorry I have not posted in forever.  Literally, forever.  I have gotten a few requests to start posting recipes again.  You see, I am pregnant with number 2 and food just has not been appealing to me lately, hence the no baking/cooking really.  But good news, I am back!  Or at least trying to be!  Haha!  So with out further ado, a new recipe! :)

This has been one of my favorite chocolate recipes since forever!  Whenever my mom would say, “I want something chocolate, what should I make?”  This was always the response.

    Isn't this the best cake?! It's the same recipe that my Mom gave me while I was growing up. I make it for my family all the time. We love it! I think it must be a Utah thing. :)

    growing up my mom always made this for large group cookouts. She added cinnamon and I was never much of a fan until one day I made it without the cinnamon! YUM. I think I will make it for after church tomorrow.. I haven't made it in years!
