Chocolate Chip Cream Cheese Squares

I spent part of the day in the kitchen on Wednesday only to have my husband come through the door after work and say, "Why can't you just make normal stuff and follow a recipe ?"
(He was referring to my experimenting!)

My answers:
1. It would be boring if I made the same old thing over and over again.
2. How do you think new recipes are made?
3. It may be good but you won't know till you at least try it.

They tried it & in the end, supper was alright.
Not bad - but not a top 10.
However, dessert was a 10 and then they all thanked me for it!

Chocolate Chip Cream Cheese Sqaures

1 box yellow cake mix
2 eggs
4 tsp. butter, soft
1 tsp. vanilla
3 tbsp. water
8 oz. cream cheese
1 cup sugar
1 bag of chocolate chips

In a bowl, combine cake mix, butter, vanilla, water and 1 of the eggs.
Mix well and spread into a greased 8X12 pan.
You may need to wet the spatula that you use to spread this out as it will be thick and sticky.
In another bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar and 2nd egg till creamy.
Stir in the chocolate chips.
Spread this over top of the cake layer.
Bake in a 350° oven for about 40-50 minutes.
Cool, cut and refrigerate.

My husband is always telling me the very same thing. BUT, when I find a new recipe that everyone loves they are glad I keep looking and trying. Now this recipe sounds like one I would just LOVE. I'm going to try it today.
