PREPARATION CHOCOLATE CAKE:
Preheat the oven to 160 degrees.

Mix the sugar, butter and salt in a bowl and beat for a few minutes to get a creamy mixture.
Now add the eggs one by one to the mixture, while you continue to beat well.
Finally, add the milk and stir well so that it becomes a homogeneous mixture.
Mix the flour with the cocoa and baking powder and mix it carefully into the batter.
Finally, stir the chopped chocolate into the batter.
Pour the batter into the baking tin and bake the cake for 65-70 minutes.
Let the cake cool on a wire rack while you prepare the eggnog buttercream.
PREPARATION LAWYER BUTTER CREAM:
Make sure the butter is at room temperature.
Beat the butter together with the crisco with an electric mixer until the mixture is creamy.
Add about half of the powdered sugar while the mixer continues to beat.
Now add the eggnog and optionally the food coloring to the mixture, along with the rest of the icing sugar.
Beat the buttercream until the mixture is homogeneous and very fluffy.
