Bar 65: Chocolate Spice Neiman Marcus Bars

Growing up, my mom used to always make a chocolate sheet cake that was so delicious!  As I got older, I realized that what made the cake so yummy was the fact that she put a little cinnamon in the frosting.  Cinnamon just makes chocolate taste that much more delicious.
During my 100 Bundt Cakes, I made a Chocolate Spice one that ended up being one of my very favorite (I named it my 5th favorite out of my 100!), so I thought I should do a bar as well.
A yummy chocolate bar with a hint of cinnamon.  The perfect combination.
Shopping List
1 box of chocolate cake mix
4 eggs
1 stick melted butter
4 cups powdered sugar
1 (8 oz) package of cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease (I used Pam) a 9×13 baking dish.
In a bowl, combine cake mix, 2 eggs and melted butter  Spread batter in bottom of pan.
In a second bowl, beat with electric mixer, powdered sugar, 2 more eggs, cream cheese and cinnamon until smooth.  Spread on top of crust mixture.
Bake 35-40 minutes until edges are brown and center set (it will still be slightly wobbly in the middle).
Cool on counter 30 minutes, then refrigerate 2 hours up to 2 days.

Instead of basic brownies…you need to make these.  Your friends and family will love you for it!

    Hello! I have a question..it may be a dumb one, but I am still trying to figure out all this cooking and I have tried a lot of your recipes that I have loved! On this particular one…it says to: Cool on counter 30 minutes, then refrigerate 2 hours up to 2 days.

    After I cook them, do they need to be refrig. that long before enjoying them?

    Yes, with these bars, they need to be in the fridge at least 2 hours before enjoying them. They need to be chilled.
