Chocolate Chip Gooey Butter Bites ~ #Recipe #Dessert #GooeyButter

Chocolate Chip Gooey Butter Bites


1 18.25-ounce box yellow cake mix
1 egg
1 stick butter, melted

1 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened
2 eggs
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 16-ounce box powdered sugar
1 stick butter, melted
Chocolate Chips


1. Preheat oven to 350.  Lightly grease a 13x9x2-inch baking pan. (I use butter or margarine to coat the sides and bottom of a glass pan, seems to taste better)

2. In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine cake mix, egg, and butter and mix well.  Pat into the bottom of prepared pan and set aside.

3. Still using an electric mixer, beat cream cheese until smooth; add eggs and vanilla.  Dump in confectioners’ sugar and beat well.  Reduce speed of mixer and slowly pour in butter.  Mix well.

4. Pour filling onto cake mixture and spread evenly.

5. Sprinkle chocolate chips over filling.

6. Bake for 40 to 50 minutes (I usually pull it around 42 minutes).  Don’t be afraid to make a judgment call on the cooking time, because oven temperatures can vary.

7. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.  Cut into squares.

Or make into balls:

1. After it has cooled for at least 30 minutes. Scoop the entire cake into a large bowl. Mix until all combined.

2. Use a scoop and drop into powdered sugar. Roll around and coat all sides

3. Place on wax paper in a container with a lid. When done, put into fridge to harden.

4. Once hardened, sprinkle more powdered sugar on top.

5. Can keep in the fridge or pull out and leave at room temp for a softer bite.


I usually make it the day before I want to eat it for a nice crunch and the gooey part settles nicely.
