Happy Halloween! On this day I always want something ooey and gooey! This fits the bill. It has everything I want. I only make this recipe a couple of times a year since it is so rich. I know it does not look that wonderful but the taste will knock your socks off……
1 8 oz. pkg cream cheese, softened
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1 16 oz. box powdered sugar
1/2 c. (1 stick) butter, melted
1 c. chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Light grease a 9×13 in. baking pan.
In a bowl, combine cake mix, egg, and butter with an electric mixer. Mix well. Pat into the bottom of prepared pan and set aside. Still using an electric mixer, beat cream cheese until smooth; add eggs and vanilla. Dump powdered sugar and beat very well. Reduce the speed of mixer and slowly pour in melted butter. Mix well. Stir in the chocolate chips. Pour filling onto cake mixture and spread evenly. Bake for 40-50 minutes (it took me closer to 50 minutes). You want to center to be a little gooey, so don’t bake it past that point! Remove from oven and allow to cool completely. If you want to drizzle melted chocolate over the top allow it to cool for at least 15 minutes and then drizzle over. Allow to cool for at least another hour and then cut into bars. Enjoy!
The first thing you need to do is put your cake mix, egg, and melted butter into a mixing bowl. Your cake mix does not have to be butter recipe, I have used a white and yellow one before.
Mix this well with a mixer. It should look like this.
Pat the dough into the bottom of a 13×9 inch greased pan. Set this aside till you make the filling.
To make the filling, the first step is to mix the cream cheese until smooth.
Add the eggs and vanilla and mix well.
Next, dump in your powdered sugar.
You need to mix this up well.
Add your melted stick of butter to this mixture.
Mix the butter in till well incorporated.
Add your chocolate chips. I used mini ones but you can use the regular size.
Pour the filling over the crust and spread until entire crust is covered.
Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 40-50 minutes. You want it to be a little bit gooey in the center. DO NOT OVER BAKE. Let this cool for a little while before you cut it. You can add a chocolate drizzle over them if you like. I chose not to. Remember I mentioned that they don’t look pretty, but once you taste them you won’t care what they look like. 🙂
