Yes, this is a very rich, sweet, moist, dense cake. Made this about 4 times and second time decreased chocolate chips to 1 cup, which is plenty sweet and taste better. I also used 1 cup of Irish cream flavored liquer, which tastes much better and added more flavor. Have also substituted 2 tablespoon instant espresso powder in place of the liquer and was fantastic. Espresso really brings out the flavor of chocolate. Have also used Andes Mint Chocolate baking chips and it was to die for! Also, use room temp. eggs, which makes cake rise better. (If in a pinch, soak cold eggs in very hot tap water for 5 min.) No need for glaze or frosting or this will be too sweet. Taste best with fresh strawberries/rasberries if available. If not, dust with powdered sugar and you're good to go. So easy and taste very homemade!! **TIP - You can use other cake mix flavors, such as Vanilla, and add the sour cream to make a moist, dense yellow cake.
