Just in Case You Didn't Have Enough to Eat Last Night....

Dessert was actually a mellow affair last night.  The boys ate so much food that they didn't devour dessert.  Unfortunately that means I have quite  a bit left.  And we are in detox over here.  Too much rich food - even the 17 year old informed me that he was eating "clean" all day.  But just in case you need a chocolate fix or are in chocolate withdrawal,  Chocolate Marble Cake to the rescue.  Very good and not too sweet :) 

Chocolate Marble Cake

1/3 cup sugar
1 8oz package softened cream cheese
1 egg

Cake Batter:
1 1/2 oz unsweetened chocolate squares
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup butter
2 cups flour
1 3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1tsp salt
2 eggs
1/2 cup sour cream
6 oz chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375.
For marble: combine softened cream cheese and sugar.  Beat until smooth then add egg and mix well. Set aside.  In small pot, melt butter, chocolate and water.  Bring to a boil and remove from heat.  In large bowl, combine flour and sugar.  Add chocolate /butter mixture and blend.  Add eggs, sour cream, baking soda and salt.  Mix well and then pour into greased and floured 15 1/2 x 10 dish. (Try to use a pan bigger then a 9 x 12, if you have it). Spoon cream cheese mixture on top of batter and cut thru with a knife to make a marble effect.  (Just run your knife up and down thru the cream cheese mixture) Sprinkle with chocolate chips.  Bake for 25 minutes.  Let cool and slice.
