Chocolate Pound Cake

This is pretty easy to make. As you can tell from the picture it is super chocolatey. It feels almost sinful to eat it. Enjoy!

4 oz. cream cheese
1 and 1/2 sticks of butter
1 1/2 c. of sugar
3 eggs
1 t. vanilla

1 1/2 c. flour
2/3 a bag of chocolate chips
Beat the cream cheese, butter and sugar for 3 minutes. Add in the eggs, vanilla and cream and beat until fully incorporated. Add in the cocoa and flour and just beat until mixed in. Fold in the chocolate chips. Pour into a 9 x 5 loaf pan and bake at 325 for 65-75 minutes. Let cool before removing from pan.
