make it
Preheat oven to 350. Coat 2 (9") round cake pans with cooking spray. Melt 1/2 cup butter, cool slightly. Toss chips with 1 Tbsp. cake mix, reserve. On medium speed, beat remaining cake mix with 1 cup water, eggs and melted butter until just blended. Beat until fluffy 2-3 min. Stir in reserved chips.

Divide batter between pans evenly. Bake 25 min or until toothpick inserted in center of cake comes out clean. Cool 5 min. Transfer from pans to racks.

Stir coffee into 1/3 cup hot water until dissolved. Reserve 2 Tbsp. Brush warm cake layers with remaining coffee mix. Cool completely. In bowl, on medium-high speed, beat remaining butter until fluffy, 2-3 min. On low speed gradually beat in 1 pkg. confectioners' sugar and reserved 2 Tbsp. coffee until blended. On med-high speed, beat until fluffy. Reserve. In separate bowl, on med-high speed, beat cream cheese with vanilla with remaining 1 cup sugar until blended and fluffy. Transfer 1 cake layer to serving plate, spread with cream cheese mix to within 1/2" of edge. Top with remaining cake layer. Spread cake top and sides with reserved coffee frosting. Using spoon, top cake with thawed whip cream.
A little hard to make, but very worth it. Listen to the "aahs" and "oohs" your quests will make.
