Hot Fudge Chocolate Pecan Cake

Tammy Brownlow


This is an easy semi-homemade dessert that will fix any chocolate craving. It's my creation of a cross between Texas Sheet Cake and Brownie Pudding - two of my favorites. I used pistachios, but pecans, or walnuts would be just as great. It's rich, and ooey-gooey good! I recommend serving with your favorite vanilla or cinnamon ice cream.
