Let's Make It
Prepare cake batter and bake as directed on package for 13x9-inch cake.
While cake is baking, beat cream cheese, sugar and vanilla in medium bowl with mixer until blended. Gradually add milk, beating on low speed after each addition until blended.
Remove cake from oven. Immediately poke deep holes in cake at 1-inch intervals, using handle of wooden spoon. Immediately pour cream cheese mixture into holes in warm cake. (If necessary, use back of spoon or spatula to gently press cream cheese mixture into cake to completely fill all holes.)
Refrigerate 1 hour. Meanwhile, make chocolate curls from white chocolate. (See tip.)
Frost cake with COOL WHIP just before serving. Garnish with chocolate curls.
How to Make Chocolate Curls
Warm chocolate slightly by heating it in the microwave for a few seconds until you can just smudge the chocolate with your thumb. Hold the chocolate steadily between your thumb and fingers of one hand and draw a vegetable peeler slowly over flat bottom of chocolate piece. Allow a thin layer of chocolate to curl as it is peeled off the bottom. This will make long delicate curls. To make short curls, use the same technique on the narrow sides of the chocolate piece. To arrange curls on a dessert, use a toothpick to lift them into place.
