Marbled Chocolate Bars


What a simple and moist dessert to make for any occasion...

I got this recipe from a dear friend.  We met over 20 years ago, when I was hired as a one-day-a-week receptionist at an auto auction...Kathy was my boss.  We had some good talks, and after she moved on to another job, she hired me to come clean her house monthly. 

We became intimate friends...sharing life's joys and heartaches. She has wisdom beyond her years as a mother of two teen boys....sure wish I had known her when I was raising my own kids!

Anyway - when her oldest son graduated from high school last year, this is something he requested for his open house.  

I love it - anything with cream cheese is a winner in my book, but this is simple to make, with only a few ingredients too. 

I loved this recipe so much, I added it to my second cookbook...
Love at First Bite  - it has over 200 recipes and over 100 of them have simple ones with 6 ingredients or fewer..

I'll have SECONDS please! I know you'll enjoy it too!
