Chocolate Sour Cream Pound Cake

One of the easiest and most delicious cakes I make is my Cream Cheese Pound Cake.  You can whip up in no time and no matter where you take it, everyone loves it!  I shared the recipe the other day and everyone said they would like to see a similar one made with chocolate and sour cream.  Who am I to I got right to work.  This cake turned out dense, heavy and has a rich chocolate flavor.  I added in a handful of chocolate chips to take it over the edge, however you can always leave them out.  I hope you enjoy both recipes!
