Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Prepare, bake and cool cake according to package directions for two 8-inch round baking pans.
For chocolate hearts garnish, pour melted chocolate chips into heart shaped molds or spread melted chocolate in 1/8-inch thickness on waxed paper lined baking sheet. Cut shapes with heart cookie cutter when chocolate begins to set, and loses its shine. Refrigerate until firm. Push heart shapes out and set aside.
