Here’s the recipe for the Chess Bars I made for FHE tonight. 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.
1 box yellow cake mix1 egg1 stick unsalted butter, softened
Mix and press in bottom of greased pan.
1 box of powdered sugar2 eggs1 8 oz. box cream cheese1 cup coconut flakes
Mix together in a blender or by hand until thoroughly combined.
- Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
- 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. (Hah! That always kills me! Of course we don’t let them cool – they always taste better warm.
