In a large mixing bowl (I use my stand mixer), beat together the softened butter, Kahlúa Mocha, room temp egg and softened cream cheese until fluffy. Add the devil's food chocolate cake mix a little a time, fully incorporating each time. Chill the dough for 30 minutes in the refrigerator.
After 30 minutes, remove and preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
