This is a sheet cake that both of my grandmothers used to make. One called it Oklahoma, one called it Texas, and they very close in flavor. I call it Death by Chocolate because it is so rich and chocolatey I think it just might have the ability to kill! LOL I've seen some similar recipes on here, but this one is just a little different than the ones I've seen, so I'm posting it. If you need a chocolate fix, look no further, this one will tide you over for quite a while! LOL Enjoy!
