Recipe for Chocolate Tunnel Cake

When we were at the Dewey’s for the Super Bowl party Gram made a Chocolate Tunnel Cake. The cake was rich and chocolaty, but it gets even better, there was a surprise “tunnel” of cream cheese and mini chocolate chips in the middle. You bake the cake in a bundt pan, so the cake was pretty and delicious. When you slice it you can see the tunnel of cream cheese. It was a cool looking cake! Everyone loved it!

Thanks for sharing the recipe Gram!! We always enjoy your treats.
