One of my all-time favorite recipes on the blog are these Chess Squares. Silly, right? They are super easy to make – but just so delicious! I seriously could sit down and eat a whole pan. (Yes, I am totally speaking from experience.) I have been craving chocolate-y pumpkin flavors all week, so I decided to make a “holiday” version of the Cheesecake Chess Squares. Turns out, they are almost better than the original!
Chocolate Pumpkin Chess Squares:
1 box chocolate cake mix
1/2 cup butter, melted (1 stick)
8 oz cream cheese, softened
4 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
Combine cake mix, butter and one egg to form a soft dough. Spread it into the bottom of a greased 9×13 baking pan. Then mix the powdered sugar, cream cheese, pumpkin and one egg until smooth. Pour over top of the crust. Bake at 300 degrees for 40-50 minutes until the edges start to turn a golden brown. Take them out and you can serve them warm, or let them cool off and serve them cold. Both ways taste delicious!
