Chess Bars

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.

Crust Ingredients

1 box yellow cake mix
1 egg
1 stick unsalted butter, softened

Mix and press in bottom of greased pan.

Topping Ingredients

1 box of powdered sugar
2 eggs
1 8 oz. box cream cheese
1 cup coconut flakes

Mix together in a blender or by hand until thoroughly combined.

Assembly Directions

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. 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.
