We’ve laid out the basic recipe below and explained the necessary add ins for each delicious bar in the photographs below. Enjoy!
Gooey Butter Bars Basic Recipe
Bake time: 40 – 50 minutes
– 1 package cake mix
– 1 stick butter, melted
– 1 egg
– 2 tablespoons water
– 1 package cream cheese
– 2 eggs
– 1 teaspoon vanilla
– 1 package powdered sugar (16 ounces)
– Biscoff cookies + spread
– Chocolate chip cookies + dough
– Nutella + hazelnuts
Each recipe follows the same pattern: Make the basic cake and topping, then layer with some of the add ins. Bake in 13″ x 9″ dish for 40-50 minutes at 350 degrees. Pretty easy to follow, right?
Start by mixing together the cake mix, melted butter, eggs, and water.
When you’re done mixing, the mixture will resemble cookie dough. Press into a greased 9″ x 13″ dish and top with your favorite add ins.
Now it’s time to make the topping. Cream the cream cheese using a hand mixer, then mix in the eggs, vanilla, and powdered sugar. Pour over the top of your cake mixture, top with toppings, and bake for 40-50 minutes. Let cool completely before serving.
All right, now that you have the basic formula down, let’s go over each of the 5 outrageously scrumptious bars.
