tablespoons chocolate syrup together in a bowl with an electric mixer. Beat at
medium speed until smooth, about 2 minutes. Stir in chocolate chips. Pour batter
into greased pan. Bake on the middle rack of a preheated oven for 30-40 minutes
(depending on the pan you are using), or until tester (toothpick or wooden
skewer) comes out clean. Set on a rack to cool. Remove from pan after 15 minutes
