These turned out great! Make sure u watch them tho because they only took 30 mins in my oven. I didnt have any vanilla flavoring so i omitted it and they were perfect without it. Not sure what the vanilla does for it but dont think they need it

I made these for my boyfriend and he could not stop raving. This is a mostly southern traditional dessert, and they are unheard of up here. He brought them into his office for his staff :-)

Disappointing. After reading all of the previous positive reviews, I had high hopes for these bars. I followed the recipe exactly...the chocolate layer was dry and the cream cheese layer was too souffle-like for my liking. :(

I wasn't sure if 16oz was to be measured by cup or weight, but thanks to the Q&A section, I went with weight and this cake turned out perfectly! It was super easy to make and made the entire house smell great! It was a fantastic sweet treat that we will certainly have again. Thanks so much for posting your recipe, we enjoyed it very much

The only problem I had with this recipe is that it was gone too quickly!!! Everyone loved these squares, even the 2 family members who are picky about which sweets they'll eat. I couldn't believe the huge servings they were taking! This goes together so quickly I'll be repeating it often. My oven runs hot so I only needed just over 30 minutes of baking time before the topping got quite golden. I loved the crusty bit on top :)

Very tasty! I used Splenda Blend in the cream cheese mixture and only 30 minutes of cooking time. It makes pretty dessert squares. This was a taste that we liked. Prepared for the 2008 Kathy/Liza Cook-athon in the Photo Forum.

This was not a hit at our house. While everyone took a piece and made polite noises, there was no swooning, no fighting to see who could hog the serving piece, no grabbing of seconds. Sorry....
