Chess Balls… to die for

Chess Balls… to die for

By December 26, 2013

My mother-in-law made these for my wedding rehearsal and they have been a family favorite ever since. They are SO GOOD, you won't believe how GOOD something this easy can be and EVERYONE will want the recipe. Did I mention they are SO VERY GOOD?

So you make a chess bar recipe, then once it has cooled you take a  small ice cream scoop and make small balls out of the chess bars then roll the balls in powdered sugar. It is that easy.

  • Prep Time : 15 minutes
  • Cook Time : 45 minutes



  • For the crust: Mix the cake mix, butter, and egg then press into a 9-13 baking dish ( I use one a little smaller but 9x13 will work)
  • For the filling: Mix the cream cheese, 2 eggs, vanilla, butter, and powdered sugar and pour over your "crust". Bake at 350 for 35-45 minutes. The edges need to be brown but the center will still be gooey.
  • Let the bars cool to room temperature then make small balls and roll in more powdered sugar and ENJOY!
