Chess Squares

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Jenny White

This is a very rich treat. It's so easy to change the recipe up by just changing the flavor of the cake mix. You can add different complementing flavors to filling as well. It's a very versatile recipe.

This is a good one, sort of reminded me of cheescake, next time I make it I'll add some lemon zest, think it would compliment the bars, my only complaint is when they were stored at room temp., they remained too soft, too sticky to be a finger food, when stored in the 'fridge they were more to our liking.
