#2765 - Chocolate Cake Brownie Bars

(by Shirley McNevich)

1 box Duncan Hines chocolate cake mix
2 eggs
1/3 cup canola oil
1 - 8oz. Philadelphia cream cheese (softened)
1/3 cup white sugar
1 cup Nestle's semi-sweet chocolate bits

In a bowl add cake mix, 1 egg, and canola oil--beat with a spoon, then mix with a pastry blender until it makes crumbs. Reserve 1 cup of the crumb mixture--set aside. Press the rest of the crumb mixture into the bottom of an ungreased 9 x 13 cake pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes. Remove from oven--cool slightly. In a bowl add cream cheese, 1 egg and white sugar--beat until smooth. Spread the cream cheese mixture over the baked cake mixture. Sprinkle the reserved cake crumbs and the chocolate chips over the cream cheese layer. Return to oven and bake 15 minutes longer at 350 degrees. Cool completely. Cut into bars or squares.
