Cream Cheese Glaze:
3 oz cream cheese, softened

In large mixing bowl, beat eggs, molasses, pumpkin puree, and oil until combined. In a medium bowl, stir together cake mix, cornstarch, baking soda, and spices. Add to pumpkin mixture and stir until smooth. Fold in chocolate chips. Pour batter into the prepared pan and bake for 60-65 minutes, until toothpick comes out clean in center. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 10-12 minutes. Turn cake out onto a wire rack to cool.
