Neiman Marcus Cookie Bars

I don't usually jump on the trendy food bandwagon. These bars are an exception. A worthy one. Rich enough to satisfy any sweet tooth. 


1 package yellow cake mix
1 egg, slightly beaten
1/2 cup butter, melted


8 ounces chocolate chips
3/4 cup nuts of your choice, chopped (I used pecans)
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 lb. powdered sugar
1 cup coconut (optional)

Mix crust ingredients together well. Press into bottom of 9" x 13" pan. Press in the chocolate chips and nuts. 

Sprinkle coconut over chocolate chips/nuts.

Mix cream cheese, powdered sugar, eggs and vanilla. Pour over pan mixture. 

Preheat oven to 300. Bake 1 hour or until top has slightly browned.

Cool and  keep refrigerated. These are great right out of the oven but even better after being refrigerated.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I've made a layer bar similar to this, but it didn't have the yellow cake in it! I might have to try it this way. Following you by the way!
