- Chocolate Cake
- Chocolate Chips
- Cream Cheese
Is it just me or does that sound like it has to be a winning combination? I found this recipe on The First Year and I think that I tried pinning it at least a half a dozen times (I always get that little “oops! looks like you’ve already pinned this!”) I finally got around to making it and here’s what I thought.
This was good. It really was, but it wasn’t “I’m dying to have this again and need to think of an excuse to make it today” good. I think that if I were to make it again that I would use a regular chocolate cake mix and not a German chocolate cake mix. I wanted more chocolate flavor in the cake.
The chocolate chips add a rich chocolate taste and the crunch from the pecans add a nice texture to this rich dessert. The melted butter and cream cheese is good but I can’t decide if it’s worth the calories.
Raspberries or strawberries were a delicious addition, when serving, that complimented the flavors in the cake well.
This would be a great dessert to take to a potluck. It would go over well in a crowd and it looks like something that you just want to dive into.
