What You'll Need

  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 sticks butter, softened
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup milk

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Coat a 9- x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. In a small bowl, combine chocolate chips, brown sugar, walnuts, and cinnamon; mix well and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed, cream together the granulated sugar and butter until fluffy. Beat in eggs, vanilla, baking powder, baking soda, and salt until smooth. Slowly add flour and milk and beat until well mixed. 
  4. Pour half the batter into baking dish. Sprinkle half the chocolate chip mixture evenly over the batter. Pour remaining batter over that, then sprinkle the top with remaining chocolate chip mixture.

Mostaccioli and Sausage Toss

Sounds pretty fancy, huh? Actually, mostaccioli pasta is simply a mustache-shaped tube pasta. You can use any shape, though, including penne, ziti, or shells, and this will still taste great.
