1 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
4 eggs
1 cup buttermilk
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
2 4 oz. bars sweet baking chocolate, melted and cooled
1 cup chocolate syrup
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate mini-morsels, divided
4 oz. white chocolate, chopped
2 TBS plus 2 tsp shortening, divided

Cream butter in a large mixing bowl; gradually add sugar, beating well at medium speed of an electric mixer. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
Combine buttermilk and soda, stirring well. Add to creamed mixture alternately with flour, beginning and ending with flour. Add two bars melted chocolate, chocolate syrup and vanilla. Mix well. Stir in 1 cup mini- morsels. Pour batter into a heavily greased and floured 10-inch Bundt pan. Bake at 300F for 1 hour 20 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.
