Ooey Gooey Butter Bars

Top Review by little_wing

Oh these are goood. Gooey and soft, rich and sweet. I'm telling you, try these bars!I have made several times with all sorts of variations. Different flavors of cake mixes, chocolate chips instead of coconut, peppermint extract for the vanilla...you really can get creative, this will work with just about anything. Well, maybe not beets and liver.
