I was inspired by a celebrityrecipe of Neil Patrick Harris. I re-worked it a bit and put in some Bud Light for a holiday kick with a bit of chocolate and created another Big Time Yummy!!
Bud Light Pound Cake Bars
1 Box of pound cake mix (16oz)
1 stick of margarine/butter softened
8 oz of 1/3 less fat cream cheese softened
3 1/2 cups of powdered sugar
1/2 cup of chopped pecans
1/2 package heath bits (4-5 oz)
1/2 package (5 oz) dark chocolate chips
Bottle of Bud Light
2 tsp vanilla
4 Tbs Brown sugar
2 tsp of Cinnamon
*Preheat oven to 350. Spray pam of crisco a 9X 13 baking dish. In a large bowl, mix cake mix, butter/margarine and 2 eggs. Mix until smooth. I used an electric mixer. I added 1 Tbs of Bud Light to this mixture. Spread this mixture evenly in the baking dish. In medium bowl, combine the 3 1/2 cups of powdered sugar, 2 eggs, another TBs of Bud Light and cream cheese. I used the electric mixer and mixed it well. Spread the cream cheese mixture evenly on the pound cake mixture. In a bowl mix the 1/2 cup of pecans with 1/4 a cup of Bud Light, 2 tsps of cinnamon and 4-5 TBS of brown sugar. Sprinkle on top of the bars. Put in the oven to bake until it's golden brown, about 40-45 minutes depending how your oven bakes.
About 5 minutes before it's finished baking, put the 1/2 bag/5 oz of dark chocolate chips with 1/4 cup of Bud Light in a microwavable bowl. MIcrowave about every :30 seconds and then stir. Add more Bud Light if chocolate is to thick. It should be thick enough to spread. Let it cool and then enjoy!
