This is my go to chocolate cake recipe. I always seem to make it on Monday's for the kids as a treat to start the week. We don't have much cakes mixes here in Ireland so you have to make it from scratch but its worth it!

P.s the surprise is what types of chocolates I put on top of the cake. I always use the kids favorites
