LeRoy Bars

Cooking time: 1 hour


This won 1st place at our company picnic.


  • 1 box Duncan Hines cake mix - use any flavor you want
  • 1 stick butter or margarine
  • 1 cup finely chopped pecans or walnuts
  • 1 box XXXX sugar
  • 1 8 oz. bar of cream cheese
  • 5 eggs


Mix nuts, cake mix, and one egg in a bowl then pour in melted butter. Mix well until it shapes into a large dough ball. Press firmly into bottom of 9 x 13 baking pan.

Put sugar, cream cheese and four remaining eggs into a bowl. Beat with a mixer until smooth and creamy (no lumps). Pour over cake mixture.

Bake for one hour at 325 degrees if you™re using a glass baking dish or at 350 degrees if using a metal baking pan. Bake more if needed until golden brown. Cool completely, for 1-2 hours. Slice into bite-size bars - makes approximately 40 bars.
