    In a large bowl, combine cake mix, 1 egg, and 1 stick of melted butter. Mix ingredients until well bended.

    With an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese until smooth.

    Add the eggs and cocoa to the cream cheese.

  • 7

    Then slowly add the sugar. Mix well.

    Bake for 40-50 minutes. The center should still be gooey but firm when removing from the oven.
