Marble Gooey Bars

this is for my sweet new friends i met this weekend. hope to see you soon. we will try to plan a committee get together at our house. sorry we missed you last night after, i was not feeling so great after we left. thanks again for the fun weekend!

1 package of yellow cake mix
1 stick of butter (melted)
1 large egg

1 package of cream cheese (8oz.) room temp.
2 large eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 stick of butter (melted)
3 3/4 cups of confectioners sugar
1 cup of semi sweet chocolate chips
preheat oven to 350
use 13 X 9 inch baking pan

combine cake mix butter and eggs in large mixing bowl. blend on low for 2 min. the batter should stick together in a ball. spread the batter over the bottom of the pan to make the crust.
for the filling you can use the bowl that you used for the crust and the beaters too. no need to clean. fluff the cream cheese by blending with the mixer. then add eggs, vanilla and melted butter and mix on medium for about a minute. add the confectioners sugar and beat on medium until sugar is incorporated.
melt the chocolate chips in either microwave or on stove. measure out one cup of the above filing and combine with the chips to make chocolate filing.

pour the white filing into the crust and spread over the entire crust. then drop spoonfuls of the chocolate over the white filing. run a butter knife over the chocolate drops to create marble effect.

bake until it is browned but the center should still jiggle ( this is one thing that is ok to jiggle:)
approx. 45-47 minutes. i think it took a little less time for me because i used a bigger pan.
keep in mind you might as well take 2 bars and place them on your rear because my dear friends this is where it will end up...but life is short...and gooey bars are soooooo good...
~type to you soon~
