Chess Squares (aka Texas Gold bars)

Review by Lyndee:

1 box yellow cake mix
3 eggs
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
4 cups (1 lb) powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 300 and spray a 9×13 dish with cooking spray. Mix cake mix, melted butter and one egg to a soft dough. Press into the bottom of the pan. 

Mix powdered sugar, softened cream cheese and remaining two eggs until smooth, about 1-2 mins. Pour on top of crust. 

Bake at 300 for 40-50 minutes until top is golden brown.

There are phenomenal bars! So rich and creamy and different than your regular brownie.  They were super easy to make too.  These are definitely going into the dessert rotation.  I can only imagine what they would be like warm out of the oven with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.  Holy cow! Delicious. 


  1. sounds like ooey gooey butter cake.

  2. No coconut! It just looks like that in the picture after you cut them. :)
