Preheat oven to 325° F. Grease and flour Classic Batter Bowl.

Prepare cake mix according to package directions; pour into batter bowl. Bake 1 hour, 10 minutes to 1 hour, 15 minutes or until cake tester inserted in center comes out clean. 

Remove from oven to cooling rack; cool 15 minutes. Run spatula around outside of cake and gently turn out onto cooling rack, large end down.

Cool 3 hours. Using serrated bread knife, trim large end of cake to level. Place cake, large end down, onto cake plate. 

To slice cake into four equal layers, slice cake horizontally in half. Then, slice each half into two equal layers.

Chop 1/4 cup of the chocolate morsels using food chopper; set aside.  

Place remaining chocolate morsels in microwave, uncovered, on high 20-60 seconds or until melted and smooth, stirring after each 20-second interval. 

In clean Batter Bowl, whisk cream cheese until smooth using stainless steel whisk. Add powdered sugar; whisk until smooth. 

Stir in melted chocolate; mix well. Fold 2 cups of the whipped topping and chopped chocolate into cream cheese mixture using spatula. 

Using spreader or butter knife, spread bottom layer of cake with about half of the filling, forming a 3/4-inch layer.

Repeat with remaining layers and filling, ending with the top layer of cake. Spread any remaining filling over outside of cake to create a smooth surface. 

Frost cake with remaining whipped topping.

*To form decorative peaks, press spreader into topping and pull away. Repeat over entire surface of cake. For easier slicing, refrigerate cake at least 30 minutes.  

To easily cut cake into servings, cut cake into eight wedges from top to bottom using utility knife. 

Carefully insert spatula horizontally into each wedge, dividing into two equal portions. 

Options for Filling:

Red Kool-Aid Strawberry Splash: Omit chocolate morsels. Add 1/2 teaspoon unsweetened strawberry drink mix powder to cream cheese mixture. Stir 1/4 cup chopped strawberries into cream cheese mixture. Proceed as recipe directs. Use
 strawberry flavored whip cream or regular with red food coloring.

Christmas Green Mint Splash: Omit 1/2 cup melted chocolate. Add 1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract and 3-4 drops green food coloring, if desired, to cream cheese mixture. Proceed as recipe directs.
