I like to call this recipe “heart attack bars.” These chess squares are SO rich, but SO delicious. AND SO EASY…which is why I love making them. And then, of course, empowering everyone else to make these because they are JUST THAT EASY.
I got this recipe from the school nurse back in my teaching days. She was kind to share this recipe. I don’t quite remember the recipe she gave me but this is the one I’ve been using for the last few years and it seems to be just as delicious.
What you need:
1 box yellow cake mix
1 stick of butter (almost completely melted)
1 pound powdered sugar (the Domino box of confectioners sugar is cheap the right amount for the recipe)
2 blocks cream cheese (almost completely melted)
What you do:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Mix the cake mix, butter and one egg together well. This will create a doughy substance. Press evenly into a greased 9×13 pan as the “crust.” Then, mix the powdered sugar, cream cheese and remaining eggs together. Pour over crust. Bake for 50-55 minutes or until the edges are slightly golden brown.
Cool completely before cutting. Enjoy the gooey deliciousness!!!!!!
I don’t have any photos of the chess squares…but they are Gene Simmons approved. Promise. Proof below.
Now go get your MUCH on!
