1 (15.25 oz) chocolate or devil’s food cake mix
1/2 cup butter, melted
3 eggs
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
4 cups confectioner’s sugar
1 tbsp. cocoa powder

Preheat oven to 300 degrees, line a 9×13 inch baking pan with aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray. Set aside.

In a medium sized bowl, add the cake mix, melted butter, and one egg. Mix together until a soft dough comes together.

Press mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan.

In a additional medium sized bowl add softened cream cheese, confectioner’s sugar, cocoa & remaining 2 eggs and mix together until smooth & incorporated. Smooth this mixture over top of the cake mix mixture in the prepared pan and spread evenly.

Bake for approximately 40-50 minutes until tops start to crack and begins to turn golden brown.

Let cool on a cooling rack in the pan. Once cool, lift out with aluminum foil and gently peel foil off. Place on cutting board and cut into squares. Store in an airtight container.

*I halved this recipe and used 1 egg in the bottom layer and 1 egg in the top and made it in an 8×8 pan. All directions the same.
