Chocolate Cheesecake Tunnel Cake

I love this cake! It is moist and yummy and chocolatey there's cheesecake inside it! Nuff said.:)

Chocolate Cheesecake Tunnel Cake

Chocolate Cake:
1 chocolate cake mix with pudding in the mix (I used Pillsbury devils food)
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup vegetable oil
4 large eggs

8 oz cream cheese, softened
1 egg
1/3 cup sugar
1 cup semi-sweet mini chocolate chips

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup heavy cream

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. For the chocolate cake, in the bowl of a mixer combine cake mix, sour cream, water, oil, and eggs. Beat at low speed for 1 minute. Scrape down sides of bowl and beat for 2 - 3 more minutes or until well combined and smooth. Pour 2/3 of the cake batter into a well greased and lightly floured bundt pan.

For filling, in a mixer or a bowl with a hand beater, mix together cream cheese, egg, and sugar. When smooth mix in mini chocolate chips by hand. Spread this filling over the cake batter and top with remaining cake batter. Bake for 45-55 minutes or until cake springs back when lightly pressed and sides are starting to pull away from pan. Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack for 20 minutes, invert cake onto rack or a serving plate and cool for 20 more minutes.

For glaze, combine chocolate chips and cream in a bowl. Microwave on high for 30 seconds then stir until smooth (you may need to pop it back in the oven if chips are not melted enough to make it smooth). Put glaze into a ziplock bag and snip off one of the bottom corners; drizzle glaze in an even pattern back and forth over the cake. Store cake covered in the refrigerator.
