Oatmeal Butterscotch Goodness Bars

I threw my sis in laws baby shower last week while we were in Boston for Gobble, Gobble day and I went w/a Fall theme. Pumpkins and owls. I'll do a whole post on it soon, but one of the desserts I made was these bars. If you saw my Oatmeal Butterscotch Whoopie Pies, then you know I heart this flavor combo. I keep thinking I can't get a new favorite. I thought for sure the Fluffernutter Bars I am continually wrong. Oh. Dear. Me. I can't explain what happened when I first ate this. Love at first bite. These are very sweet, but I could have eaten them all. Thank goodness for being in public. I was saved from myself. But barely...


I have made so many versions. and yes, these are ooey gooey bars and Neiman Marcus bars and Chess bars & any other name I have yet to have heard of. I stumbled upon a blog a while back from pinterest that had made a chess bar recipe and the comments were cracking me up. Girls were getting all kinds of riled up over the names. "No, these are definitely Neiman Marcus bars" No way, these are for sure ooey gooey bars" and lots of other less than lady like comments. haha Who knew people were so passionate about these bars. Here's the deal...they're scrumptious. So really who cares what they're called. 

and so henceforth...any version I make will be known as "goodness" bars b/c quite frankly...that's better suited than some of the other names;) and yes, I totally said Henceforth...I'm a word nerd.  Not sorry.

Ingredients:
Cake:
1 box yellow cake mix
8 tbsp butter, melted
1 egg

1/2 bag butterscotch chips
1 packet butterscotch pudding

Filling:
1 8 oz pkge of cream cheese, softened
2 eggs
8 tbsp butter, melted
16 oz powdered sugar
1 packet cheesecake pudding

1/2 bag butterscotch chips


DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Combine the cake mix, egg, butter, pudding packet and butterscotch chips and mix well with an electric mixer.  Pat the mixture into the bottom of a lightly greased 13 by 9-inch baking pan.
Sprinkle remaining chips over cake mixture
In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese until smooth.  Add the eggs and butter and beat together. 
Next, add the pudding packet and slowly add in the powdered sugar and mix well.  Spread over cake batter and bake for 40 to 50 minutes.  Make sure not to over bake as the center should be a little gooey.
The edges are my favorite. Save them for yourself. Hide them if you must. I don't care what you do. and Wiki says these are better the next day, cold and with coffee. I wouldn't know. I don't drink that horrendous stuff.
