Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you all have a great day and are able to stuff yourselves to your little hearts content. I made a non-traditional dessert to take with to our family gathering and it came out yummy! Jeremy even said, “You ARE putting this on the blog, right?” Right you are! Here is the recipe for yummy Chess Squares.
This is sooooo easy and yummy! I found the recipe on Pinterest, the original recipe you can find at KevinAndAmanda.com. I followed it exactly! I can’t believe I haven’t made them yet, they will definitely be making many appearance in our home for the years to come… here is what you need:
1 ea Boxed Yellow Cake Mix
8 oz Cream Cheese, Softened
1 lbs Powdered Sugar
1 ea Stick Butter, melted
3 ea Eggs
First, set your oven to 300 degrees. You need a 9×13 pan, greased. Mix the cake mix, melted butter and one egg until you get a soft cookie dough consistency. I used my electric hand mixer. Press this into the pan evenly.
Mix the remaining ingredients with hand mixer and spread this over the dough. It is very sticky, do the best you can.
Now, pop into the oven. It took 45 minutes for mine to bake, you want to have a lightly golden top.
I highly recommend letting these cool completely or you will have a big gooey mess when you cut into them. I let them sit over night and it was perfect! I cut into small squares, they are so rich and decadent you don’t need too much at once. You get a lightly crunchy crust, soft gooey center and yummy brownie like bottom. It’s amazing with a glass of milk! I bet Santa would even enjoy this to mix it up a bit!
