My whole family loves this recipe so much. If it were for them, I’d be making this every day! Give it a shot, you’ll love it!To Make this Recipe You’ Will Need the following ingredients:
1 heaping cup shredded, sweetened coconut
1 heaping cup chopped pecans or walnuts
1 (16 to 18 oz.) boxed, chocolate cake mix, made according to package directions
8 oz. cream cheese, softened to room temperature
1/2 cup butter, softened to room temperature
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 cups powdered sugar
1 and 1/2 cups chocolate chips
Method Of PReparation
Grease a 9×13 cake pan generously with butter. Sprinkle the coconut and nuts evenly over the bottom of the pan. Make up the cake mix according to package directions (most cake mixes call for water, eggs and oil.)
Once batter is mixed, pour it over the coconut and nuts.
In the bowl of a stand mixer, mix cream cheese, butter, vanilla and powdered sugar, using the whisk attachment. Blend until smooth. Drop by generous spoonfuls all over the cake batter until you use it all. Sprinkle top with 1 cup of the chocolate chips. Bake in preheated oven for 50 minutes. Remove from oven. Sprinkle the rest of the chocolate chips over the top.
Allow cake to come to room temperature before cutting into pieces and serving. Top with frosting or whipped cream if you wish.
