How to Make Sweet Potato Dark Chocolate Bars


  1. Begin by combining the cake mix, butter and egg together. Mix until little balls of cake mix form.
  2. Press into a lightly greased 9x13 inch pan. Then in the mixing bow, combine cream cheese, spices, egg, sugar and sweet potato puree. mix well.
  3. Pour the sweet potato puree mix over the top of the crust.
  4. In a medium bowl, mix the granola, cinnamon and dark chocolate chips together.
  5. If necessary add 1 tablespoon melted butter to help the ingredients stick together.
  6. Sprinkle the topping over the sweet potato filling. Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean.
  7. Notes: I found that the cake mix layer (crust) was what needed to be clean during my toothpick check, the sweet potato layer remains somewhat creamy and solidifies as it cools.
  8. If you never made sweet potato puree, simply boil the sweet potatoes for 20 minutes, until tender when pricked with a fork.
  9. Allow them to cool slightly on the counter, then peel and mash the potatoes.
  10. The mash may need 2-4 tablespoons water to make it thinner and more puree like.
  11. You can do this in a blender to eliminate any potato pieces. The puree can be kept in the freezer and used whenever you need it.
