Neiman Marcus Bars

The summer is full of parties but your schedule can still be just as hectic, leaving little time to whip up a fancy treat. Neiman Marcus Bars taste like a million bucks but no one will ever guess it all started with a box of cake mix and just 5 simple ingredients. These gooey cake bars are addicting and are sure to be a hit!

How to Make Neiman Marcus Bars?

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and prepare you pan by spraying it with grease or lining with parchment paper.
  • With an electric mixer, combine the cake mix (just the powder. Disregard instructions on the box for adding other ingredients.), 2 of the eggs, and the melted butter. This will be thick but spread it into the pan as evenly possible.
  • Make the top layer by mixing the cream cheese, eggs, powdered sugar, and vanilla together. Pour it over the cake batter.
  • Bake for 35 minutes and then remove and cool completely.

Why are they called Neiman Marcus Bars?

These bars are sometime referred to as “gooey butter bars”. They are so rich in flavor that they are often called Neiman Marcus Bars because Neiman Marcus is an upscale store for the rich. The recipe is not from the from store.

What kind of cake mix should I use?

For this recipe you need a yellow cake mix. I use Duncan Hines but you can use any other brand of the same size. If you want to experiment with different flavors, try using a lemon, chocolate, or red velvet cake mix!
