1
box Betty Crocker® SuperMoist® butter recipe chocolate cake mix
1/2
cup water
2/3
cup butter, melted
4
eggs
1
container (8 oz) sour cream
1
cup packed brown sugar
1/3
cup chopped pecans
1/3
cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
2
teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2
cup Betty Crocker® Rich & Creamy chocolate frosting
  1. Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan). Grease or spray bottom only of 13x9-inch pan.
  2. In large bowl, beat cake mix, water, butter, eggs and sour cream with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds, then on medium speed 2 minutes (batter will be thick). Spread half of batter in pan.
  3. In small bowl, mix brown sugar, pecans, chocolate chips and cinnamon; sprinkle over batter in pan. Drop remaining batter by spoonfuls evenly over pecan mixture; carefully spread to cover.
  4. Bake 46 to 54 minutes or until top springs back when touched lightly in center. Cool 10 minutes.
  5. Poke top of warm cake every 1/2 inch with long-tined fork. Carefully spread frosting evenly and thinly over warm cake. Run knife around sides of pan to loosen cake. Cool completely, about 1 1/2 hours. Store loosely covered.

In a pinch, chopped walnuts or slivered almonds can be substituted for the pecans.
When frosting a warm cake, spread in just one direction, using long strokes. Using a back-and-forth motion often causes the top layer of cake to come off, leaving crumbs in the frosting.
