1
box (18.25 oz) Betty Crocker™ SuperMoist™ butter recipe chocolate cake mix
Butter
Water
Eggs
2
teaspoons instant coffee granules or crystals
2
bags (12 oz each) semisweet chocolate chips
1
bottle (16 oz) refrigerated hazelnut-flavor coffee creamer
1
package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
2
tablespoons chopped hazelnuts (filberts)
  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Grease bottoms only of two 9-inch round pans. Prepare cake mix as directed on box using butter, water and eggs and adding coffee granules; pour batter into pans. Bake as directed on box. Cool 10 minutes; remove from pans and place on wire racks.
  2. In 3-quart saucepan, cook chocolate chips and coffee creamer over medium-low heat about 8 minutes, stirring constantly, until melted. Remove from heat; beat in cream cheese with wire whisk until smooth. Cover; refrigerate about 30 minutes.
  3. In small microwavable bowl, reserve 1/2 cup of the chocolate mixture; set aside for topping. Beat remaining mixture on medium-high speed 8 minutes or until it forms a light and fluffy frosting.
  4. Place 1 cake layer on serving plate, rounded side down. Spread 1-inch-thick layer of frosting over cake. Top with second cake layer, rounded side up. Spread frosting on side and top of cake.
  5. Microwave reserved 1/2 cup chocolate mixture on High 30 seconds or until soft; spread over top of cake. Sprinkle hazelnuts around top edge. Cover loosely; refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving. Store in refrigerator.

Tip
To keep the frosting from sticking to the plastic wrap, poke toothpicks around the outside edge of the frosted cake before covering with plastic wrap. Remove the toothpicks before serving.
