And there, right there in the spotlight, there's the Ooey Gooey.
Have you had Ooey Gooey before?
It's the first time for WGNO News with a Twist features guy Wild Bill Wood.
He gets to share his Ooey Gooey moment with Plaquemines Parish President Amos Cormier.
Amos Cormier is an Ooey Gooey expert.
He loves Ooey Gooey. He knows where to find the best Ooey Gooey on earth.
Maybe it could possibly become the official dessert of Plaquemines Parish.
If you've never take a bite from the dessert that really is a blessing, here's the recipe so you can create your very own Ooey Gooey:
1 box of vanilla cake mix
1/2 cup (that's one stick) of butter, melted
8 ounces of cream cheese
1 pound bag (that's about 3 and 3/4 cup) powdered sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla
To make these buttery bars, mix the cake mix, butter and one egg until you've got a dough.
Press this into the bottom of a baking dish.
In a mixer, combine the cream cheese, those other two eggs, sugar and vanilla.
Spread all that over what's in the baking dish.
Bake for 45 minutes.
Let them cool.
And let them eat Ooey Gooey.
