Double Dark Chocolate Protein Cake






Anything covered in chocolate is perfection to me! And if you're a chocolate lover, this cake was made especially for you. It has a rich and decadent chocolate flavor from the chocolate protein powder, dark cocoa powder, and dark chocolate chips. Then it is drizzled with melted dark chocolate chips. It is evil, I tell you, in the best way possible! It makes 8 lovely servings and with only 120 calories/slice, I promise it isn't as naughty as it tastes. Enjoy!
