I recently made my own version of Earthquake Cakes and I’m so happy how they turned out.  It started with a Red Velvet Earthquake Cake then a Pumpkin Earthquake Cake and now this Chocolate Fudge Earthquake Cake.  They are so simple to make and so delicious!  The combination of sweetened cream cheese, butter, chocolate chips and coconut go together perfectly then it’s swirled into a rich chocolate fudge mix and baked into one beautiful cake!
Ingredients are as follows:

1 box Chocolate Fudge Cake Mix  (plus the ingredients needed to prepare the cake)
1/2 C butter
8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
1 tsp. vanilla
2 C powdered sugar
1 C semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 C coconut

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees; grease a 9×13″ pan.

Melt the butter either in the microwave or on the stove.
