Chocolate Cream Cheese Bars

These were my other dessert for the FPU party.  I don't know where I found this recipe--but had been hunting for recipes to make in a jelly roll pan.  I made frosting for the top of these and everyone loved this.(see my note at the end)
Chocolate Cream Cheese Bars

Crust:
1 Box Devil's food cake mix
1/2 cup butter softened
2 TBS milk
1 egg
Cream Cheese filling:
 2 pkgs. (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
 2 eggs
1 TBS all purpose flour


Heat oven to 350 degrees F.

In large bowl, mix cake mix, butter, milk and egg with a spoon until moistened (it will look nothing like cake batter!) Spread or push with your fingers in the bottom of a jelly roll pan (15 x10 x1-inch).

 In another large bowl, beat cream cheese, sour cream, sugar and vanilla on medium until smooth and creamy. Add 2 eggs, one at a time, beating after each until mixed. On low speed, beat in flour. Pour over crust in pan.

Bake 35-40 minutes, until cheesecake filling is set. Let cool completely and then cut into bars.

You can garnish with some drizzled chocolate if you wish (1/4 cup choc. chips and 2 tsp. shortening - microwave together in food storage bag (about 20 seconds), squeeze to mix, snip of tiny corner and drizzle over the top of the bars before cutting into bars.)

**Beth tried to drizzle chocolate and it turned out clumpy, so I spread it thinly.  I didn't like how that looked so made this frosting.
