  • Attention Chocoholicsee save this recipe

    I have a friend who gave up chocolate for Lent, so I wanted to make something chocolate and yummy for him after Easter.

    I came up with this Chocolate Surprise Cake, and it turned out even better than I thought it would.

    It's very easy, uses a jazzed-up cake mix and a few other ingredients to make a beautiful shiny cake with a cream cheesy chocolate chip center.

    It's quite rich as is, and icing is not really necessary, but you could add icing if you wanted to. Chocoholics take note: you should save this recipe. If you try it, you'll make it again and again. Enjoy!
