Gooey Butter Bars

Gooey Butter Bars created by Marie Nixon

These bars are awesome, good for any occasion. They are very rich, even though you can only eat a few at a time, I've seen people manage to get half the pan down. I don't know if anyone has seen or had these bars but my mom made them for me when I was a kid and I have no idea where she got it from, but they are to good to wonder. Make it exactly as it says or it won't come out right. This is so not hard to make even though it might seem that way just reading it, try it you won't be sorry. Enjoy for any occassion.

    Super sweet bar cookie. I added 1 t. vanilla extract to the cream cheese layer. I suggest cutting these bars in 1" or 2" pieces and putting them in mini muffin paper liners. Hot coffee or cold milk required.

    Tried this recipe before I looked other places for the recipe. It's missing another stick of melted butter in the topping, mixed in last before you pour on topping and bake.

    This is most definitely a sweet treat, & something most of us can handle only some much of at a time, so, I suggest that you really try cutting this batch into at least 24 pieces! Love the taste (& I've got a sweet tooth to satisfy), but 1 piece at a time, with laahhhng pauses in between, works just fine! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
