“This recipe comes off of a package of "Nestle Toll House Swirled Real Semi-Sweet and White Chocolate Morsels". The Wite Chocolate Swirles are so delicious by them selves, I thought I would give this the Old College Try. They are so good in this cake, I couldn't stop eating them right out of the package. I'm a sucker for White or Dark Chocolate.”
