Double Chocolate Gooey Butter Cake...recipe by Paula Deen
2 sticks melted butter, divided
1 pkg chocolate cake mix
1-8oz pkg cream cheese, softened
3-4 tablespoons cocoa powder
1-18oz box powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup+ chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 13x9" baking pan. In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, 1 egg, and 1 stick melted butter, and stir until well blended. Pat mixture into prepared pan and set aside. With electric mixer, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Add the remaining 2 eggs, and the cocoa powder. Lower the speeed of mixer, and add the powdered sugar. Continue beating until ingredients are well mixed. Slowly add the remaining stick of melted butter and the vanilla, continuing to beat the mixture until smooth. Spread filling over cake mixture in pan. Sprinkle chocolate chips on top. Bake for 45-50 minutes, being careful not to overcook. The center should still be a little gooey when finished baking.
*Note: this is so rich it's more like chocolate fudge, and I cut the pieces accordingly. It will satisfy any chocoholic's cravings! If you want to get really decadent, serve it with some ice cream for a brownie sunday.
