"A dense tunnel of chocolaty cream cheese winds through this cake, which is so decadent, yet surprisingly easy."

1 1/4 cups
semisweet chocolate chips
2 (8 ounce) packages
cream cheese, softened
1 (18.25 ounce) package
chocolate cake mix
cold, brewed coffee
heavy whipping cream
semisweet chocolate chips
To avoid the "hole in the center" when the cream cheese tunnel doesn't hold up to slicing, add an egg and 1/2 cup of flour and 1/2 tsp. baking powder to the cream cheese mixture. Yummy cake!
This cake is very unique and rich. I did like it but I probably won't make it again. Everyone who tried it liked it but I prefer really moist chocolate cakes. The cream cheese part is moist but not the actual cake. Maybe it is the type of mix I use I'm not too sure but overall it is very unique and chocolatey. It tastes really good with milk and really looks beautiful with the icing.
My coworkers and my husband loved this! I'm not usually a chocolate lover, but it tastes like a chocolate cake with cheesecake in the middle. Yum! I did add an egg to the cream cheese mixture before baking and it turned out perfectly. I will definitely make this again!
This was delicious. I actually made two cakes: one as listed here and the second I used white chocolate chips. Everyone preferred the white chocolate center. Also, on the second cake I sprinkled the pecans on top instead of in it (in case someone doesn't like nuts), increased the cream used in the cream cheese mixture by 2 tablespoons, and made a white chocolate glaze to compliment the chocolate glaze. Yummy!
This cake is to die for! I didn't make the glaze; instead I melted some semisweet, milk and white chocolate chips (separately) and drizzled them alternatively over the cake. I then put shavings of white and milk chocolate on top. What a presentation!
This cake was fabulous! We poured a raspberry coulis over each piece before serving. Delicious! I made this cake in a bundt pan, and it seemed like there was almost too much filling. Next time I may cut the filling in half. ---- Just made this for the second time, and used white chocolate chips for the filling and only 1 1/2 packages of cream cheese. Worked great. The whole cake dissapeared very quickly. I suggest to serve this cake cold. OH, I also omited the nuts.
I think this cake was wonderful!! I will make this cake for the hoilday season. for a helpful tip add one egg to the cream cheese mix it will mak it stay very well put togther!!
YUMmy!!! This cake is so good. I served it at a cinco de Mayo party we had lastnight and everyone loved it. I did not serve it cold but would recomend doing so, It's even better today cold, I can't get enough of this delicous, scrumptious cake and so easy to make. I made it without nuts and substituted the coffee for choclate milk and put melted whhite choclate and dark cholclate chips, beautiful and tasty!!!
