Before the SNOWMAGEDDON befell us, Slick + I went to a dinner party this weekend and we promised to bring along a dessert with us. I wasn’t in the mood to make any of the chocolate-y recipes I’d committed to memory, so instead I consulted my recipe book and decided to make one of my colleague’s specialties – Ooey Gooey Chess Squares. Not only are they delicious, but their name is pretty fun to say!
Here’s how you make ‘em:
1 box of All-Butter Cake mix
1 stick of butter (not margarine), melted
2 teaspoons of vanilla
1 (8 ounce) package of cream cheese
1 (16 ounce) of powdered sugar
1 – Mix cake mix with 1 egg, butter + vanilla and spread in greased 9×13″ pan.
2 – Beat 3 eggs, cream cheese + sugar together and pour over cake mixture.
3 – Bake at 350 degrees for 30 – 40 minutes. (Mine browned a lot around the sides, but much like w/ brownies, the ends + chewy part are my favorite!)
4 – Cool + cut into bars.
They are super yummy, sooooooo easy to make, always a hit + a fun alternative to making brownies all the time. However, you can still easily cook them in the Perfect Brownie pan! And best of all, they are a great treat to keep you cozy inside during the SNOWPOCALYPSE we’re still experiencing in Atlanta! Stay warm!
