Pecan-Chocolate Chip Snack Cake

Key Ingredients: Chocolate chips, pecans

Crusty on the outside, gooey and sweet within, this snack cake is as easy to make as a bar cookie. Just spread the batter in a pan and bake until the top is golden, then cut into squares and serve. The combination of nuts and chocolate is always a winner, and this version works well with coffee, for dessert, or as part of an elaborate holiday brunch.
