  • 1 box your favourite Chocolate Cake Mix (do not prepare as directed on box, use instructions and ingredients below)
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/3 cups water
  • 2/3 cup shredded coconut
  • 2/3 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup or 1 stick, unsalted or salted butter
  • 3 3/4 cups of icing sugar


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Lightly spray a 9 x 13 inch pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  3. Sprinkle the coconut, chocolate chips, and the chopped pecans over the bottom of the pan.
  4. Mix the chocolate cake mix along with the oil, water and eggs using a spatula or hand mixer.
  5. Pour the cake mix over top of the coconut/chocolate chip/pecan layer.
  6. In a saucepan or fry pan, melt the butter and cream cheese together.
  7. Using a spatula or hand mixer on low, add the butter/cream cheese mixture together with the icing sugar until it’s smooth.
  8. dollop the mixture on top of the uncooked chocolate cake in the pan, and swirl using a knife into the cake mix.
  9. Bake for 35-45 minutes. Using a toothpick to test the doneness will not work as the mixture is too gooey. Just make sure it doesn’t wobble too much.
