1 box Chocolate fudge cake mix

In small microwavable bowl, microwave milk and 1/2 cup of the chocolate chips uncovered on medium (50%) about 1 minute or until chocolate is softened; stir until smooth and set aside.

In large bowl, beat cake mix and oil with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds (mixture will be crumbly); reserve 1 cup. Add applesauce and eggs; beat on low speed 30 seconds, scraping bowl occasionally (batter will be thick and grainy). Beat on medium speed 2 minutes, craping bowl occasionally. Spread batter in pan.

Drop melted chocolate mixture by teaspoonfuls over batter, dropping more around edge than in center. Stir remaining 1/2 cup chocolate chips and the pecans into reserved cake mixture; sprinkle over batter.

Bake 38 to 43 minutes or until center is set. Run knife around side of pan to loosen cake. Cool completely, about 2 hours. Store covered at room temperature.
