Take the remaining 1/4 of chocolate chips and combine with the other cake mix.
Fill the bottom of the pan with alternate layers of chocolate chip and chocolate mix.
Finally, use a knife to swirl in upward and downward motion round the cake mix to give the marble effect.
Put it into the oven and bake for 70 mins.
