Recipe by CASunshine

An easy, yummy, chocolaty recipe that feeds a large group or hog it all yourself! Notice it is called a "Cheese Cake" not a "cheesecake" in the traditional way.

We really liked this cake. It's nearly impossible to find an 18 oz. box of cake mix anymore, though. It seems they're being phased out. I had to use a 16 oz. box that called for 1 cup of water. I made the rest of the recipe exactly as posted, except I ended up using only 1 cup of semisweet chocolate chips (the whole bag seemed to be too much). It turned out perfectly for us. Of course, I had to rename this Chocolate Chip Cream Cheese Cake because everyone kept expecting a cheesecake! :-) Thanks for sharing this really nice cake. Made for Spring PAC 2013.
