Here's how to make them:
1 box of yellow cake mix (1 pound)
4 oz of unsalted butter, melted
8 oz of cream cheese, softened
1 pound (16oz) of powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees, line an 8 x 8 pan with parchment paper.
Make the base first by mixing the cake mix, butter, and 1 egg in an electric mixer till combined.
Pat the cake mixture into the pan, create an even layer.
Make the ooey gooey layer by creaming together the softened
cream cheese, powdered sugar, 2 eggs, and vanilla.
Then pour the gooey layer over the cake layer, spread to the edges.
Bake for 45 minutes or until edges are golden brown,
center should be creamy yet solid consistency like cheesecake.
Cool completely in pan before cutting into 1-inch squares with clean, dry knife.
For best square results, put them in the freezer to chill before slicing.
