Earthquake Cake

This cake is like an explosion in your mouth!
If the creamy craters aren't enough you've got nuts and coconut
on the bottom that take it to a whole new dimension.
It bakes up bubbly and molten.

Earthquake Cake:
1 chocolate cake mix, plus ingredients to make
1 c. coconut, shredded
1 c. walnuts, chopped
1 - 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/2 c. butter, softened
1 t. vanilla
1 c. chocolate chips (on top at the end)
2 c. powdered sugar
Spray 9x13 inch pan with Pam. Sprinkle walnuts and coconut on the bottom of the pan. Mix cake mix according to directions. Pour over coconut and walnuts. Mix softened cream cheese and butter until combined. Add powdered sugar and vanilla. Drop by spoonfuls over the cake mix and sprinkle chocolate chips on top.
Bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes.
***Baker's Note: Place a clean cookie sheet or aluminum foil under the cake. As mine baked it flowed over the edges of the pan a bit. I narrowly averted a mess by having a baking stone on the rack below:)
