Cookie Sheet Chocolate Cake

“A rich, almost brownie like, chocolate cake with milk chocolate icing. This is a family favourite. For years I told everyone this was a family recipe only to find out from my mom she got the recipe from a friend down the street! Well, it’s a family recipe for two generations anyway.”
