Cake Mix Cream Cheese Bars

Since farming has been going full force Hubby has been packing his lunch and eating on the go while he works.  I’ve been trying to have something sweet he can grab and add to his lunch.  I have some granola or cereal bars just in case I don’t have a baked goodie ready to grab but I’ve been trying really hard to have something here for him.  I stumbled across a recipe that I had to try-it was just too easy that I had to give it a try.

To make the crust take one cake mix.  Ignore the directions on the package.  Add one softened stick of butter and one beaten egg.  Mix and then press into the bottom of a 9 x 13 pan.

For the cream cheese part mix one 8 oz. softened package of cream cheese, 4 cups powdered sugar and two eggs.  Pour over the top, spread and bake at 300 degrees for 40 minutes until lightly tan.

How easy right???

I used a chocolate cake mix-the original recipe called for a white cake mix but I’m thinking I’d love to try a pumpkin flavored cake mix in the fall…that sounds yummy!  I hope Hubby likes them as it’s always nice to have a quick and easy recipe close at hand…ah who am I fooling?  He’ll love them.  They have cream cheese in them!

  1. 4 cups of powdered sugar sounds like overkill. Is that amount really correct. Definitely not for diabetics if it is. Sounds tasty though.

  2. It’s a good thing my oven doesn’t work. This is another one of the recipes that you have added to your blog that I would like to make. Besides not having an oven, I’m the only one here, so I would eat the entire thing. I enjoy reading the recipes, please don’t stop. Thanks for sharing.

  3. I agree that 4 cups of sugar sounds like a lot. But I bet it would be good to cut the sugar and add some coconut!

  4. Use a Supreme strawberry cake mix. And when done drizzle top with strawberry preserves. Or drizzle w some melted chocolate! Yummy. But I do agree with the sugar amount. I’d add the sugar A cup at a time w just the cream cheese. And taste it b4 adding the eggs. And as long as it’s as sweet as you or we like it. It should come out YUMMY.

  5. I have made this many times. The amount of sugar is correct, but there are times I’ve used at least 3 1/2 cups or sugar substitute for diabetics. I also have added pecans. It’s great!
