Every single time I make chess squares, I wonder why I don’t use this recipe more. Everybody loves these things!
But then, a few days later, I remember why: they are completely addictive and I have zero will power against them. As a matter of fact, a few of these are currently sitting in my kitchen and it’s taking everything I’ve got to say no right now.
Another reason I love this recipe is that you can add basically any flavor in to change it up a little bit! I made these for Easter Sunday…how perfect is the bright flavor of lemon for a spring dessert?
Here’s the recipe I used!
- 1 box lemon cake mix
- 1 stick (1/2 cup), melted butter
- 1 egg
- cream cheese, room temperature 8oz
- 3 cups powdered sugar
- 1 cup sweetened lemonade mix
- 2 eggs
Bake at 325 degrees for 35-40 minutes, until mixture is set and top starts to brown. Let cool for 20-30 minutes before serving.
