YUMMMM!!! I made this the other day because I had all the ingredients on hand and it was delicious! It is very rich, but oh so good. My hubby and son loved it, I took a piece into work for a girl, and she loved it. Next time, I may add peanut butter chips to it also, and try to cut back on the 10x sugar, but I do know this is a keeper!
I like the taste and blend of the crust ingredients. However, the topping was too thin and would not set after baking. I would suggest baking the crust/chocolate chips, p/nut butter chips first then after cooling add a cream cheese topping, maybe Cool Whip and cream cheese/sugar blended together. Maybe shave some chocolate on top for ganish or sprinkle w/mini-chips.
I did an ingredient search for a few items I had on hand and this recipe came up. I was shocked how much XXX sugar it asked for, so I used only 1/3 of a box when other reviews said it was so sweet. I also took their advice and used only half the chocolate chips. My only problem was I had no cake mix, so I used a packaged muffin mix, and it did fine. The cooking time and oven temp is not right, and I bumped it up to 325 like the others did. The consistancy is good and I had no problems with runniness. But would have liked a denser cream cheese -- this is a bit spongy. I am giving this only two stars because I had to change the recipe for it to come out right, on the advice of the other reviews. Taste is okay but nothing special-- won't make them again.
I just made this for Easter. It was not a big hit. I hated the crust since I hate box cake mix. I had to bake it longer like the others said.
Sorry it was not good.
I followed the recipe as written except I used one 10 ounce bag of milk chocolate and peanut butter chips and I baked at 325 for 55 minutes. Yes, these are very, very rich and sweet but my family loved them. After cooling for about one hour these still required a fork to eat, but overnight they firmed up very nicely and could be cut into neat little bars. Next time I will make them the day before I plan to serve.
Really easy to make. I kept them in the fridge and every time that I cut a piece I would microwave for 25 seconds and top with a dollop (or two) of whipped cream. Alot of chocolate which was more than okay with me. No problem with the cream cheese being runny. Came out great. Finished last crumb in bed last night.
This was very good, but we thought, (even the kids), that there was way too much chocolate chips and it took away from the taste of everything else. Next time I make I will cut the chips down to 1 cup. Did take other reviewers advice and baked at 325 for about 35 minutes. Consistency was great! Thanks Lana
This recipe works very well as written. Because of personal tastes next time I will cut sugar back by a 1/3.
