Texas Chocolate Sheet Cake

Texas Chocolate Sheet Cake

I don`t know why this Texas chocolate sheet cake recipe has such a long name or how it came into effect. I am not saying it is not a good name but I would have thought to give it a more shorter and interesting catchy type name. OK, enough with the name, this recipe has a really unique taste to it, now I don't know is it because of the way the confectioner made it at the time because I have not found an exotic ingredient in the recipe. But honestly that guy is good. I some how manage to get this recipe of the net which in fact is quite and easy desserts recipe but I have not made it to perfect taste yet, I just hope that anyone who has tried it and know what I am talking about can share their thoughts so I can at least improvise a little on this easy desserts Texas chocolate sheet cake recipe and try to get that very unique taste back.
