I'm sorry, guys. I didn't mean to hold out on you. Really.
I originally got this recipe from my mother-in-law years ago, and I could not even begin to guess how many times I've made it since then. I've made it for a lot of gatherings with family and friends, birthdays at work, just because I wanted chocolate... It is always a hit, and I rarely take any leftovers home with me when I take it to a party. That's usually because someone else does. ;)
This is packed full of sweet, chocolatey, creamy, amazing-ness. And then covered in chocolate chips.
Need I say more?
Now, I think I'm going to go make some... then maybe update the picture. I can't ever remember to take a picture of this BEFORE it's cut. That may be because I cut it before it's even cool, but that's ok. You can too. I won't judge.
1 cake mix (Devil's food or dark, but I always use devils food.)
1 stick Butter
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 teaspoon Vanilla
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup milk chocolate chips (
optional but who doesn't add chocolate chips when they can??)
*additional note on chocolate chips: I really don't know how many I add. This was the original... I just dump chocolate chips on. If it looks like you have enough, add more.
- Preheat oven to 350°. Grease a 9"x13" baking pan, set aside.
- Stir cake mix, 1 egg, and butter together until crumbly. Save one cup, place rest in bottom of prepared pan.
- Mix together cream cheese, 1 egg, vanilla, and milk until creamy. Pour on top of brownie mix. Crumble cup of saved brownie mix on top. Add chocolate chips
, if desired.
- Bake for 30 minutes, or until cream cheese sets and edges golden.
24-32 pieces, depending on how many you are serving and desired size.
