Crust layer

  • 1 box 15.25 oz. red velvet cake mix
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup 1 stick butter, melted

Ooey gooey layer

  • 1 package 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 box 16 oz. powdered sugar (or measure 3¾ cup)
  • Sprinkles


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish and set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix the dry cake mix, egg and butter until well combined. Press into the bottom of the prepared pan. Set aside.
  3. In a separate medium mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese with an electric mixer until smooth. Add the eggs and beat until thoroughly combined. Add the powdered sugar and beat until combined. Evenly pour the cream cheese mixture over the cake mix layer, spreading and leveling with a spatula. Top with sprinkles.
  4. Bake 27-35 minutes, or until set but still "gooey" in the middle.
