yellow cake mix
semisweet chocolate chips
1 (8 ounce) package
cream cheese, softened
3 1/2 cups
Very decadent and rich!!! but very quick and easy. I used Duncan Hines Butter recipe cake mix, used 1/3 less fat cream cheese. I also used milk chocolate chips instead of semi-sweet and also sprinkled more chips on top after baking. I decreased confectioners sugar to 2 and 1/2 cups as suggested. Will make again, so quick easy and good. Thanks Carol!
I was excited to try this recipe, but I won't be making it again. It's like eating raw cookie dough with extra sugar and butter added. I used half the amount of sugar called for, but they still turned out way too sweet! Don't get me wrong, I LOVE sweet desserts, but this was just too much. My husband and friends agreed. I also found the cake dough to be fairly hard to work with (very crumbly and difficult to spread), and the cream cheese layer is too thick and sticky to pour evenly over the chips. Better to simply mix the chips in with the cream cheese and save yourself some trouble.
Loved it! Except for one thing, you definately have to decrease the confectioners sugar to 2 cups or it will put you in a diabetic coma! made a second batch with 2 cups, and it was to die for!!!
YUM!!!!this was soo delicious!!I'm soo glad i tried it. I was almost afraid to because it had gotten some iffy reviews and im not a big fan of cake mixes, but it was extremely delicious!! Like some of the other reviewers i also used only 2 cups of conf. sugar, and i added 4tbsp of melted butter to the cream cheese mix because i noticed most of the other gooey butter cake recipes had butter in the filling as well, and it turned out really well. I do agree that the cake portion is a bit dry but altogether it was well worth it.
I took the other reviewers suggestions and cut the sugar back by a cup and it came out wonderful. I was looking for something cheap, delicious and easy to take to a last minute dinner innivation. They were all gone in five minutes flat! I couldn't believe it. This recipe is a keeper.
The idea of this recipe is good but it doesn't quite turn out. The bottom layer is too dry and the top a little too sweet. I think with tinkering it could be good so I'm going to work on it.
These were very good but I did make changes. First I do not think that it is possible to spread the mixture because of the thickness. I ended up having to press it in the pan. I also cut the sugar down to 1 cup and that was perfect and still sweet but not overly sweet. (3-1/2 cups seems like way too much). I threw the ingredients for the topping in the food processor and it poured nicely and evenly and the result was a nice cheese-like topping. Will be making again. Thanks
I make this all the time and my friends love it! lots of people ask for this recipe. yes, it sticks to my teeth, but that's what sweets do. I sometimes make a half recipe in an 8x8 pan with a cupcake mix that is half the size of a cake mix. I also cook it a little longer so the topping isn't as gooey (I am paranoid about cooking the eggs through) and with a little brown on top, it makes for an almost marshmallow top.
