  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon soda
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 12-oz package chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup nuts, optional

Mix together all ingredients except flour and chocolate chips.  Then stir in flour and then chocolate chips.  Bake at 375 degrees F. for 12-15 minutes.  Then remove and frost.

Frosting: 1 teaspoon allspice, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1 cups powdered sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla, 1-2 teaspoons milk 3 tablespoons butter (melted).  Mix all ingredients together.
