I tried making these yesterday….the cake part is more like a mushy truffle is this normal? and also when you bite into the chocolate coating and the cake will it fall and crumble off of the stick? How can I make this better?

I would like to make this but really just the cream cheese part… would you thing adding flour would make it a consistency that would be able to stand alone???

Cindy – I don’t really know. It was more of a topping – not very subsantial. I think if you tried it like that it would remind me of the lemon bars I made. Maybe if it had a crust-like bottom for support.

I was wondering if you thing that these could be made into a cupcake, or mini cupcake? or even a pop… i have had these when my friend made them, and they are awesome.

terry – probably cupcakes, but not so much the pops.

How much sugar goes in the cream cheese topping? 1 cup right, not 1 pound? Thanks!

Erin said...

Nevermind! I was thinking cane sugar, not confectioner’s sugar…so sorry about that!

Thank you! I followed your recipe and it turned out very yummy! :) I would like to send some to my bf on the other end of the states. Can you suggest me any good method to send them without the cream cheese goes bad?

I’ve tried different variations of the bars. I have used different varieties of cake mix as well as brownies. I love adding nuts to the mix as well. A friend made pumpkin cheesecake bars for Thanksgiving. They were amazing!

I didn’t realise that American cream cheese is very different to English cream cheese! apparently your is like a block and ours is a very thin spread. the topping was really liquid so I ended up scattering half of the topping on and swirling it in, with good results!
