Directions:
Preheat oven to 350F. Grease and flour two 9-inch round cake pans. In a saucepan, melt butter and chocolate, stirring, over low heat.

Combine flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda and salt in large bowl. Add chocolate mixture, buttermilk and eggs. Beat on low speed for 1 minute; increase speed to high and beat until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes.

Divide batter between cake pans. Bake until cakes spring back when gently pressed, 25-30 minutes. Cool in pans 5 minutes; invert onto wire rack.

Bring cream just to a boil. Remove from heat and stir in chocolate chips; mix until frosting is smooth and starts to thicken.

Place 1 cooled layer on cake plate. Spread with 1/3 cup frosting. Top with second layer. Frost top and side of cake with remaining frosting.
