Chocolate Chip Oohy Goohy Butter Bars
1 box butter-recipe cake mix
1/2 c (1stick) butter, melted
1- 8 oz cream cheese, softened
1 t. vanilla
1 16 oz box powdered sugar
1/2 c (1 stick) butter, melted
1 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350. Lightly grease a 9 x 13 baking pan. In a bowl combine cake mix, egg, and butter with an electric mixer. Mix well, and pat into the bottom of prepared pan. Still using the electric mixer, beat cream cheese until smooth, add eggs and vanilla. Slowly add the powdered sugar, mix until well blended. Reduce the speed of the mixer and slowly add butter. Stir in the chocolate chips.
Pour the filling over the cake mixture and spread evenly. Bake for 45-50 minutes. You want the center to be a little goohy. Remove from the oven and cool completely.
**If you want to drizzle chocolate over the top for garnish, allow to cool for 15 minutes or so and drizzle away, then cool completely before slicing and serving.
