This cake was inspired by the flavors of s’mores and is guaranteed to bring back memories of Girl Scout campfires. Grind your own crumbs for the freshest flavor.

Combine the butter and sugar in a large mixing bowl and cream with an electric mixer on medium-high speed until fluffy, about 3 minutes, scraping down the sides of the bowl as necessary. With the mixer on low speed, add the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and then beat until smooth.
With the mixer on low speed, add 1/3 of the flour mixture, then 1/2 of the milk, stirring until combined. Repeat with the remaining flour and milk, ending with the flour. Stir in the chocolate chips.
Scrape the batter into the prepared pan and smooth the top with a rubber spatula. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 35 minutes. Let the cake cool in the pan for about 10 minutes. Invert it onto a wire rack, and then turn it right side up on a rack to cool completely.
Cut the cake into squares and serve each one with a dollop of frosting on top.
Make Ahead Tips
Store uneaten squares in a cake keeper or wrap in plastic and store at room temperature for up to 3 days. The frosting can be kept in the refrigerator in a bowl covered with plastic wrap for up to 3 days. Bring to room temperature before using.

This cake is pretty good. I wasn't blown away, but I thought it was tasty with a cup of coffee or tea. My young daughters LOVED it so I'd probably make it again. But I think the frosting is way too sweet as proposed here. Next time I'd cut the sugar by half.
