  • Combine cake mix, water, eggs, and oil in a large bowl and beat with an electric blender on low speed until moistened, about 30 seconds. Increase to medium speed and beat for 2 minutes. Stir walnuts and chocolate chips into the batter. Pour half of the batter into the prepared microwave safe bowl or ramekins.

  • Spoon chocolate frosting over the batter and spread evenly over the top. Pour the rest of the batter on top.

  • Microwave until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean, 7 minutes for a bowl or 3 to 4 minutes for smaller ramekins. Remove from microwave and let rest, about 5 minutes. Dust with confectioners' sugar.

Cook's Notes:

Moist or pudding cake mixes work best.

You can use any type of nuts besides walnuts.
