Chess squares are one of my very favorite desserts. But would you believe this is my first time to make them? 

I was walking by the break room in our office at school a couple of weeks ago, and from the corner of my eye, I thought I caught a glimpse of this favorite dessert of mine. And, because I have no shame when it comes to sweets, I casually mentioned to our registrar Mrs. Frith that I spied something delicious looking in the lounge. Without hesitation she offered me one. She brought them for the office staff, and after just one bite, I immediately wanted the recipe to share with you. 


Layer One

1 box yellow cake mix (without pudding in the mix)
1 stick of melted butter
1 egg, beaten

Layer Two:

1 - 8 oz bar of softened cream cheese
3 eggs
1 box of confectioners sugar


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Mix the layer one ingredients and spread/press in a 13 x 9 baking dish. 

Mix the layer two ingredients well and pour over layer one. 

Bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes. Then, turn down the oven to 325 degrees and bake an additional 30 - 35 minutes. Let cool completely before cutting--although this will be extremely difficult. :-)

They took no time to make and were sooo easy. I hope you like them!



  1. Yum! I've always loved them! Nana

    1. Me, too! I guess I just always made something else when I needed a dessert. Never thought to look for a recipe...Thank goodness for Mrs. Frith. Ha!

  2. I am extremely impressed with your writing skills
    as well as with the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself?
    Anyway keep up the nice quality writing, it's
    rare to see a great blog like this one today.
