Have mercy, this is so good! This recipe is different from other gooey treat recipes you may have seen because I use a whole bag of chocolate chips. You might want to have the recipe handy if you share it with anyone because they will probably ask for it.

Bake

Ingredients

FOR THE CRUST:

1 box
yellow cake mix
1 large
egg
1 stick
salted butter, melted (8 tablespoons)

FOR THE FILLING:

1 pkg
cream cheese (8 ounce), room temperature
2 large
eggs
1 tsp
pure vanilla extract
1 box
powdered sugar (16 ounces)
1 stick
salted butter, melted (8 tablespoons)
1 pkg
semisweet chocolate chips (12 ounces)

Step-By-Step

1Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and place rack in center position.
2Lightly butter or spray a 9"x13" casserole dish or baking pan.
3Pour cake mix into mixing bowl, add egg and melted butter and mix until well combined. (Using an electric hand mixer is easiest.) Batter will be the consistency of loose play-doh.
4Scrape batter into prepared casserole or pan, using the scraper to get the bowl and beaters as clean as possible.
5Put the beaters in the bowl and set aside for later (mixing the filling.)
6Using clean hands, press the dough evenly into bottom of the pan; set aside.
7In the used mixing bowl, beat cream cheese until fluffy.
8Add 2 eggs and 1 teaspoon vanilla; beat until very well combined.
9With mixer at low to medium-low speed, very gradually add powdered sugar until thoroughly combined.
10Gradually add melted butter (1 stick) and mix well.
11Add 1 bag of chocolate chips and mix well.
12Pour filling mixture over crust batter and spread evenly.
13Bake at 350 degrees F for 40 to 45 minutes (all ovens differ, my oven takes 45 mins.) It will still be jiggly.
14Remove from oven and allow to cool for at least 2 hours before cutting.
