Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Oooey, gooey and oh so creamy, this cake is such a treat. This is like a chocolate covered strawberry, in cake form. My chocolate chips didn't swirl as lovely as I would have liked them to. We ended up spreading them on top of the cake in the Test Kitchen and it was just as delicious!

2 stick

1 pkg

  • 3Pour on top of dough in pan. Drizzle with strawberry preserves and swirl to make it pretty. Bake at 350 degrees for 40-50 minutes. Don't over bake, you want the middle to be a little bit jiggly, it will set as it cools.
  • 4As soon as you remove the cake from the oven, sprinkle with the mini chocolate chips. after about 3 minutes when they are soft, use a spoon or knife to swirl the melted chips on the top. Serve with whipped cream.
