#3511 - Upside Down Chocolate Cheesecake

(by Shirley McNevich)

2 cups Nestle's semi-sweet chocolate bits
1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup Baker's angelflake coconut
1 box Duncan Hines chocolate cake mix
1 - 8oz. Philadelphia cream cheese (softened and cubed)
1/3 cup softened butter
2 cup Domino's powdered sugar (sifted)

Prepare the cake mix according to box directions. Line a 9 x 13 cake pan with wax paper (including the sides). Spray the wax paper with Pam. Sprinkle the chocolate chips, chopped pecans and coconut evenly over the wax paper in the bottom of the pan. Slowly pour the prepared chocolate cake batter all over the top. In a saucepan over low heat add the cubed cream cheese and softened butter--cook/stir until melted and mostly smooth. Remove from heat--add powdered sugar--stir until mixed. Carefully and evenly drizzle the cream cheese batter over the chocolate batter. Bake at 350 degrees for 45-55 minutes--test with a toothpick for doneness. Cool the cake for 15 minutes, then invert on to a cake plate. Carefully peel and discard the wax paper. Cool completely.
