These White Chocolate Butter Bars are a spin on classic Gooey Butter Cake! I’ve added lots of white chocolate chips that make these bars rich, soft, and creamy with an extra buttery flavor!




  • 1/2 cup cold butter
  • 1 (15.75- ounce) box yellow cake mix
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips


  • 1 (8- ounce) block cream cheese, room temperature
  • 2 cups powdered sugar, plus more for dusting
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 325°F. Coat a 9×13- inch baking pan with nonstick spray. Set aside.
  2. Cake: In the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment mix together the butter and cake mix until combined, yet crumbly.
  3. Add in the egg and mix on medium for 1 minute. Batter will be stiff.
  4. Press the mixture into the prepared pan.
  5. Sprinkle the white chocolate chips evenly over batter.
  6. Filling: In the same mixing bowl, still fitted with the paddle attachment mix the cream cheese and powdered sugar for 1 minute, or until smooth.
  7. Add in eggs and vanilla and mix on medium speed until combined, scraping the sides of the bowl as necessary.
  8. Pour this evenly over white chocolate chips and spread to edges of pan.
  9. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the center is set.
  10. Remove from oven and dust with powdered sugar.
  11. Let cool completely in the pan before cutting into squares.
