I’ll share it all with you soon enough…trust me, it’s nothing major.
But since I will be busy, I figured you might be busy too.
I just assume things like that…because I apparently think the world revolves around me.
Wait, it doesn’t?
So yeah..this week we have a theme.
Busy people still need sweets!
I’m thinking that is pretty much the best theme ever.
So, “Busy people still need sweets” week has begun.
And since there’s nothing quicker than a cake mix, we’re gonna start there. All week.
So yeah, my theme just got longer…
“Busy people still need sweets that start with cake mix” week.
Concise, I clearly am not.
My mom made these bars for years.
I kinda thought she was a cooking genius.
Until I saw that this is just about, basically, almost exactly the same recipe that EVERYONE IN ALL THE LAND uses for Gooey Butter cake.
But, my mom did add white chocolate. Which is really a genius move. At least in my book.
Here’s what you do…
Start with a yellow cake mix and some cold butter. Mix the 2 ingredients together until you have a crumbly consistency.
Then add in an egg and vanilla…the dough will be thick
Press it into a greased baking dish…
Sprinkle your white chocolate chips all over the unbaked crust.
Next mix up some cream cheese, powdered sugar, eggs and vanilla. Pour this on top of the white chocolate chips.
If you have self control you should wait for this to cool before cutting into squares.
Self control is optional where I come from…
So, I do this thing when I eat directly from the baking dish…hush…and then try and cut it in a straight line before my husband sees evidence of my gluttony.
It’s a dirty little secret.
Sometimes I keep cutting and eating and cutting and eating until my line is perfectly perfect. I’m kind of a perfectionist. It’s my plight in life.
So now that you have sweets, you can go back to being busy.
