Original recipe yields 1 - 9x13 inch pan



  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch pan.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the cake mix, melted butter and 1 egg until smooth. Batter will be thick. Spread evenly into the bottom of the prepared pan. Next, sprinkle the chocolate chips over the layer of dough. Finally, beat the cream cheese, 2 eggs and confectioners' sugar together in a medium bowl until smooth. Pour as evenly as you can over the chocolate chips.
  3. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes in the preheated oven, until the top is set. Let cool for at least 30 minutes before cutting into bars.

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!!!



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.
