      Oh, here are some Variations! 🙂 :
      1.) Use a chocolate cake mix with cream cheese filling. Then add chocolate chips on top.
      2.) Use chocolate cake mix. Add 3/4 to 1 cup peanut butter to filling. Add chocolate chips on top.
      3.) Use spiced carrot cake mix. Add chopped nuts & shredded carrots to filling.
