    Recipe Introduction

    Prep Time: 15 minutesCook Time: 45 minutes
    Yield: 20 to 24 servings

    List of Ingredients

    8 tablespoons (1 stick) butter, melted, plus 8 more tablespoons (1 stick)
    butter, melted, plus additional butter, for greasing pan
    1 (18.25-ounce) package chocolate cake mix
    1 egg, plus 2 eggs
    1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
    3 to 4 tablespoons cocoa powder
    1 (16-ounce) box powdered sugar
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1 cup chopped nuts


    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
    Lightly grease a 13 by 9-inch 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.
    In a stand mixer, or with a hand mixer, beat the cream cheese until smooth.
    Add the remaining 2 eggs, and the cocoa powder. Lower the speed of the
    mixer, and add the powdered sugar. Continue beating until ingredients are
    well mixed. Slowly add the remaining 1 stick of melted butter, and the
    vanilla, continuing to beat the mixture until smooth. Stir in nuts with a
    rubber spatula. Spread filling over cake mixture in pan. Bake for 40 to 50
    minutes. Be careful not to overcook the cake; the center should still be a
    little gooey when finished baking. Let cake partially cool on a wire rack
    before cutting into pieces.
