    Delicious, and I came up with this recipie, and since I thought it was so great, I decided to share it. 🙂 ENJOY!
    This is the best cake you will ever try.
    6 small eggs
    2 cups chocolate chips
    1 cup almonds or walnuts, toasted (ANY NUT WORKS, I PREFER ALMONDS OR WALNUTS)
    2 cups flour
    2 cups butter, melted
    3 cups crushed graham crackers
    ***You will need a 12×12 cake pan.***
    Pre-heat oven to 350ºF.

    Mix flour, 1 cup butter, egg, almond, and 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips. Mix until smooth, besides the chips, and nuts.

    Next, in the pan put all of crushed graham crackers in pan. Mix in the left over butter, and smooth out.

    Last, spread filling mix on the crust. Put in the oven for 20-30 min, or until it has got high.

    Once it done, put rest of chocolate chips on top and serve hot.

    **Please, shall you forgive my english, I not taught too goodly.**
