Easy (Almost) Texas Sheet Cake

Alright, I don't know about you, but I have a huge (HUGE!) sweet tooth.  At least sometimes....  :)  So, on Friday I felt like making some Texas Sheet Cake, but didn't have the time to make it from scratch.  So here's my short cut that worked out well....but truth be told, didn't really turn out as a Texas sheet cake.  It's delicious, but the cake isn't as spongy/soggy as a true Texas sheet cake.
I suppose some people will like this better than the real deal, while others want the real thing.  Either way, this is a quick way to make a delicious dessert!  :)  (Don't worry I will still continue to make the real deal from time to time, but this sure did make quick work of a dessert, which is always appreciated!)  :)
Easy (almost) Texas Sheet Cake
1 box German Chocolate Cake Mix, with ingredients to make into cake
1/4 c.  Cocoa Powder
1 c.  Sugar
2/3 c.  Milk
1 t. Vanilla
1/2-1 c. Nuts

1.  Mix up cake batter according to the instructions on the box.  Then pour into a jelly roll pan and bake in a 350 degree oven for about 20 minutes.  (Or until it starts to pull away from the sides of the pan.)  Don't ask why mine looked bubbly like this when I took it out of the oven....don't know...but still tasted great! :)
 2.  While the cake is baking start on the frosting goodness!  :)  In a small pot combine the cocoa, milk and sugar on medium heat until the sugar dissolves.  Remove from heat and add vanilla.  (You'll put the frosting on the cake immediately after it comes out of the oven, so be ready!)
3.  When the cake is done baking pull it out of the oven and pour the frosting over it.  Try to get it everywhere, and you can help it along with a spatula.  Then sprinkle the nuts on top!  Done!
Enjoy!  I prefer it right after it's been frosted (even though it's really hot) but eat whenever you'd like!  :)
