January 27th is National Chocolate Cake Day. Plus, it’s Friday! Therefore, I think that it’s very appropriate and fitting to have a slice of a chocolate cake today! Perfect excuse and no regrets.
For me, chocolate cake is definitely an indulgence. After I have a slice (and a half leaning towards two), my skinny jeans and I are no longer BFFs but eventually we do rekindle our love for one another :)
Here are some sweet chocolaty treats to help you get through National Chocolate Cake Day…

Now who says you can’t have your cake and eat it too? Hate me, love me, or thank me later. But please don’t hate me :)
Happy Chocolate Cake Day!!
I made snickerdoodle cookies. I cheated. I used cake mix. It took me less than 20 minutes. It’s semi-homemade. I fooled my boyfriend into thinking I took forever. It worked. And now he’s in love with me. I am a genius :)
Me, a genius? Noooo! Me, lazy…yes.
After a Google search for snickerdoodles, I somehow landed on Betty Crocker’s website. Hmm reminiscent of November 2011, haha. If I said it already, I’m saying it again…Betty Crocker is a genius! I love the idea of incorporating cake mix because (a) cookie making time is cut in half; (b) no need to measure out ingredients; (c) super affordable; and (d) everything that you need is already in the box. Now I can understand why crazy couponers love to have a stockpile of cake mixes :)
