How to Make Ooey Gooey Fudge Nut / Cream Cheese Bars

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degree F.

    Line a 9 x 13 cake pan with foil, spray with nonstick cooking spray, set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, butter, egg, vanilla and coffee; mix with electric mixer. Batter will be thick.
  3. Press or spread the dough it into the prepared pan. (I used a frosting knife to spread.) It will be sticky, and a bit tricky to work with, but keep pressing or spreading. Sprinkle the nuts, white and dark chocolate chips evenly over the top.
  4. In a mixing bowl, combine the sweetened condensed milk and cream cheese, mix until well combined, and pour mixture evenly over dough, using a spatula to gently spread and even it if necessary.
  5. Bake for 24 to 27 minutes, or until edges of bars begin to barely brown and pull away slightly from the sides of the pan. The middle will not seem very well set and will be jiggly upon removing from oven and that is okay, you want to keep these gooey.
  6. They will continue to set up more after they have cooled. Allow bars to cool well before slicing and serving. (Although my husband loves them warm ) lol!
