Ingredients:  
8 tablespoons (1 stick) butter, melted, plus 8 more tablespoons butter, melted, plus additional butter for greasing pan.
1 (18.25 ounce) package chocolate cake mix
1 egg, plus 2 eggs
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
3 to 4 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 (16 ounce) box powdered sugar

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350. Lightly grease a 13 X 9 baking pan.

In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, 1 egg and 1 stick melted butter and stir until well blended. Pat mixture into prepared pan and set aside.

With mixer, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Add the remaining 2 eggs, and the cocoa powder. Lower the speed of the mixer, and add the powdered sugar. Continue beating until ingredients are well mixed. Slowly add the remaining 1 stick of melted butter and the vanilla, continuing to beat the mixture until smooth. Stir in nuts with a rubber spatula. Spread filling over cake mixture in pan. Bake for 40 to 50 minutes. Be careful not to overcook the cake; the center should still be a little gooey when finished baking. Let cake partially cool on a wire rack before cutting into pieces.
