Ingredients

1 (18.5 ounce) package yellow cake mix
2 large eggs
1/4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
2 cups chocolate chips, divided
1 tablespoon shortening

Directions

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a 9x13-inch baking pan or line it with parchment paper.

In a mixing bowl, combine the yellow cake mix, eggs, brown sugar, melted butter, and water.

Step 3

Beat the mixture on medium speed for 2 minutes.

Step 4

Stir in the nuts and 1 cup of the chocolate chips.

Step 5

Spread the batter into the prepared baking pan.

Step 6

Step 7

In a microsafe bowl or in a double boiler, melt the shortening with the remaining 1 cup of chocolate chips.

Step 8

Drizzle the melted chocolate sauce over the top of the cake.
