Here’s the recipe for the Chess Bars I made at Thanksgiving. These have coconut in them, but don’t let that scare you. You can’t really taste the coconut, and it adds a nice sweetness and texture to the chess bars.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- 1 box yellow cake mix
- 1 egg
- 1 stick unsalted butter, softened
Mix and press in bottom of greased pan.
- 1 box of powdered sugar
- 2 eggs
- (1) 8 oz. box cream cheese
- 1 cup coconut flakes
Mix together in a blender or by hand until thoroughly combined.
Spread on top of bottom layer. Bake for 35-45 minutes or until golden brown.
Be careful to not overcook, or they will become tough to chew. Let cool and cut into squares.
