Not being from the South it took me some time to get acquainted with the lovely thing called Ooey Gooey Bars! My favorite is lemon but I have used Caramel cake mix and got rave reviews! I have added mini-chocolate chips to the cream cheese mixture when I make it with Chocolate cake mix....oh, the possibilities are totally endless. If you like to "Play with your Food" this the one of the best recipes to play around with.....ENJOY!
