Toffee Gooey Butter cake

MMMMMMMMMMMMMMM, I love Paula Deen! She introduced me to the Gooey Butter cake concept... and this one, is a killer!!

Vegetable oil cooking spray
1 (18.2- ounce) package yellow cake mix
1 large egg
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted

1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 (1 pound) box confectioners’ sugar
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
1 cup toffee bits (I found Heath Bar choc toffee bits)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 13 by 9 by 2-inch baking pan with vegetable oil cooking spray.
In the bowl of an electric mixer at medium speed, combine the cake mix, egg, and butter and mix well. Pat evenly into the bottom of the prepared baking pan and set aside.
In a bowl, mix together the cream cheese, eggs, vanilla extract, confectioners’ sugar and butter. Beat on medium speed until smooth. Fold in the toffee bits with a spatula.
Pour the filling over the cake mixture and spread it evenly. Bake until the center is just a little bit gooey, about 40 to 50 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely. Cut into pieces and serve.

I had to make this cake for work.. for the April birthdays. WELL, I doubled the recipe, cuz we have 40 people.. and the thing did not cook right at all! The outside like got too dark, and the center was still liquid… ugh.. soooo. I had to improvise.. and I kinda mixed it up, and chopped it up. Lol. then finished cooking it, and now today will cover it with cool whip, and serve it as like a cobbler instead... I just snuck a taste, and its FANTASTIC! super chewy, and great flavor!! :) yeah! not a total bust!
