Almond Chocolate Cake

My friends couldn't get enough of this chocolate cake recipe I found on Taste of Home! They've all requested I make this again for our Christmas get-together. 

·         1 package (18-1/4 ounces) German chocolate cake mix
·         1 package (3.9 ounces) instant chocolate fudge pudding mix
·         1-1/4 cups water
·         1/2 cup canola oil
·         4 eggs
·         3 teaspoons almond extract
·         2-3/4 cups semisweet chocolate chips, divided
·         6 tablespoons refrigerated regular or amaretto-flavored nondairy creamer
·         1 tablespoon sliced almonds

·         In a large bowl, combine the cake and pudding mixes, water, oil, eggs and extract; beat until combined. Stir in 2 cups chocolate chips.
·         Pour into a greased and floured 10-in. fluted tube pan. Bake at 350° for 65-70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.
·         In a small saucepan, combine the creamer and remaining chocolate chips. Cook over low heat until chips are melted; stir until smooth. Cool for 45 minutes. Drizzle over cake. Garnish with almonds. Yield: 12-16 servings.
