White Chocolate-Pumpkin Neiman Marcus Bars

White chocolate with pumpkin?  That might be sheer genius on my part.  I just adore a Neiman Marcus bar…adore.  They’re rich and gooey and kind of like a piece of cake while also kind of like a brownie.  This one would be perfect for a Thanksgiving dessert…pumpkin doesn’t always have to be in the shape of a pie.  I garnished mine with a few more white chocolate chips.  I’ve always been one to love a little chocolate excess.

 Shopping List

  • 1 box white cake mix
  • 4 eggs, divided
  • 16 tablespoons butter, melted and divided
  • 1 (8 oz) package cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups white chocolate chips, divided
  • 1 (15 oz) can pumpkin
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 (16 oz) box powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice (or cinnamon if you don’t have any)
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine the cake mix, 1 egg, and 8 tablespoons butter and mix well with an electric mixer.
  3. Pat the mixture into the bottom of a lightly greased 13 by 9-inch baking pan. This will be your “crust”.
  4. Sprinkle one cup of white chocolate chips over the crust.

To make the topping:

  1. In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese and pumpkin until smooth.
  2. Add the remaining 3 eggs, vanilla, and the other 8 tablespoons butter, and beat together.
  3. Next, add the powdered sugar, and pumpkin pie spice and mix well.
  4. Stir in the remaining 1 cup of white chocolate chips.
  5. Spread pumpkin mixture over cake “crust” and bake for 40 to 50 minutes. Make sure not to over bake as the center should be a little gooey.
