Gluten Free White Chocolate Butter Bars Recipe

These are so rich and delicious!  And they put the mmmmmm in creamy!

Found this recipe for White Chocolate Butter Bars a while back on Cookies and Cups.  Shelly has the most AMAZING recipes!  The squares look so pretty on a plate, and have such a simple flavor profile, anyone will LOVE them!

SPH Gluten Free White Chocolate Butter Bars
1/2 cup melted butter
1 box Betty Crocker Gluten Free Yellow Cake Mix
1 egg
1 12-oz. package white chocolate chips
8 oz. package cream cheese, room temperature
2 cups powdered sugar, plus more for dusting
2 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs

Preheat oven to 350.  Butter the bottom and sides of a 9 x 13.  In a large mixing bowl, combine butter and cake mix until mixture looks like crumbs.  Beat in the egg.  It will now be like sticky crumbs.  Press evenly into bottom of baking pan.  Sprinkle the white chocolate chips over cake mixture, and press in gently.  In separate mixing bowl, beat together cream cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla and eggs.  Pour evenly over chips and be sure it reaches the edge of the pan.  Bake for about 25-30 minutes, or til center is set and tester comes out clean.  Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.  Dust with desired amount of powdered sugar.  Cut carefully into squares, and store in the fridge for up to 3 days, if any survive that long.

So I'm thinking I'm going to have to try this with chocolate cake mix and milk chocolate chips.  Maybe even make it a triple-chocolate-threat by putting some cocoa powder in the cream cheese layer?  Some other ideas are floating around, too, but I'll have to get back to you on those...

These would be a great addition to the dessert table at a ladies' luncheon or Bible study, a treat for a neighbor or friend who did something really special for you, or just because it's Thursday.

Give them a try, and ENJOY!

This is a fabulous recipe! I've made it for a couple of functions and nobody even knows its GF! One addition I made recently was adding Mac nuts with the white choco chips.
