"Death by Chocolate" Cake

So funny story: I never realized that normal people don't have a dessert every single day hah! When I was younger people would come to be house and be in awe by the fact that we had cake in the cupboard and cookies in the fridge at all time! Which seems so odd to my family because that is EVERY DAY! 

We started making this cake a few months ago and have had it every week since! It is SO SO good! And I don't always say that! (Well, maybe I do)... BUT TRUST ME. This cake is amazing!!! It is so moist and dense and just all around the best thing in the world. So what more do I need to say?! 

This cake will be the best thing you have ever eaten in your life. This cake has become and stayed our number one favorite. Eat it if you dare...You'll never want anything else.
