I have been making this cake for about 15 years. Everyone seems to love it, but I will tell you right now.
This is not on your diet.
Here is what you will need:
Melt your butter and mix with cake mix, 2 eggs, and up to a cup of chopped pecans.
Press in the bottom of a prepared 9 x 13" pan.
Next, mix the following:
Soften the cream cheese and mix with 2 more eggs, one box of powdered sugar, and a teaspoon of vanilla.
Spread this on top of the chocolate layer.
Bake this for 45 minutes at 350.
It may not look quite done. Just make sure you do not scorch it. Or dry it out.
Cool it completely and refrigerate. You can make the cake part a day ahead and then, the next day
(like right before the party, as the guests are arriving and you are sweating 'cause you are running late.) Top it with Cool Whip. You will want somewhere between 12 oz and 16 oz. I think 12 is too little and 16 is too much, so feel free to lick the bowl as you go. ;)
Then sprinkle the top with shredded coconut and chopped pecans.
Or mini chips if you are not into coconut.
Like that's possible.
Try not to die when you eat this. It's sooooo rich!
