I have a killer sweet tooth and just about anything sugary will satisfy my sweet tooth. My husband loves chess squares so I decided to make some for Father's Day. Check out the recipe below.

  • You can use just about any type of mix. I have used strawberry and yellow also in previous recipes
  • 1 cup melted butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup chopped pecans- you can leave them out if you don't LOVE pecans...I Love them.
  • Filling
  • 2 (8) ounce packages of cream cheese
  • 4 cups of confectioners' sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • Directions

  • 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • 2. Combine cake mix, melted butter,pecans, and egg in a bowl. Mix until blended and spread into a 9x13 inch pan.

  • *Tip place cream cheese in microwave for 1 minute to soften it and make it easier to stir.
