Moon Pie Squares

 If a Moon Pie is new to you...I'll try to explain. Moon Pies are a sandwich type cookie made with 2 round graham crackers (palm-sized) with a marshmallow filling dipped in chocolate. They are individually wrapped and come in other flavors too, like vanilla and banana (my favorite). I'm not sure but they might just be a southern thing, all I know is they have been around forever here in Texas and I love them.
Found this easy bar for you to try. It's like some of the cake bars you've seen before  but full of marshmallow and graham crackers. The cream cheese just brings it all together. You won't be disappointed. Hope you can find Moon Pies in your area.

1 bx yellow cake mix
1 c melted butter
1 egg
16 oz cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 c confectioners' sugar
2 large eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla
4 Moon Pies, chopped into small pieces
1 c milk chocolate chips
 Preheat oven to 350º. Mix together cake mix, butter and 1 egg. Mix well and press into the bottom of a 9x13" pan. Sprinkle with 1/2 of your chopped Moon Pies - set aside.

Beat your soft cream cheese, vanilla and confectioners' sugar until smooth. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating until completely incorporated. Pour over crust.
Bake for about 40 minutes or until set. Remove from oven and sprinkle with chocolate chips - smooth them out a little. Now sprinkle chopped Moon Pies over melted chocolate chips. Let cool then refrigerate in a covered container. Cut into bars.
