Reviews for Marbled Chocolate Bars
"I thought these tasted great. However, I was looking for a cookie bar/brownie and these turned out to be cake squares. In addition, the cream cheese sank to the bottom of the bottom so they were really messy. If I made it again, I would either use one less egg or look at a different brand of cake mix."
"Oh my, these bars are the best! I can't make them very often though unless it's for a large group of people. If it sits around the house, I will eat the entire pan!"
"This is a super rich chocolate cake! I did not use all the chocolate chips it called for and it was still so rich. The BEST addition I made to this recipe was adding a flavor liquor to the cream cheese mixture. Everyone loves it! Some notes: You will need a large pan, as it states. Also, because of rich flavor and decadents, cut into SMALL servings."
"The second time I made this years ago, I changed the choc chips to Reeses peanut butter chips. It made a HUGE difference and people always want me to make these - we call them "bad girl brownies!" They are insanely moist and more cake than brownie - leave out an egg if you want them more like brownies."
"Very easy and very tasty. Grandkids ask for this all the time. The only change I make is I use semi-sweet choc. chips. Turns out great. Will make again and again."
