4-Ingredient Cake Mix Cookie Bars

You don't have to be around me for long to know I LOVE shortcuts!

I surely love using cake mixes to save steps...and the kitchen!

This easy and delicious recipe is quick and can be made for an
evening dessert, or even a bake sale or picnic!

Use whatever flavor cake mix you have on hand...these chocolate ones
were terrific.  

I LOVE having many options too and using up what I have on hand! 

Use a lemon cake mix with white chips, or add toffee bits to a yellow or chocolate cake mix, add dark chips to a white cake mix...let your imagination go wild...and for sure, use what you have on hand to make a quick and easy dessert! 

Go for it - try these soon.  The older kids can help as well.  

I didn't even use a mixer, just stirred by hand.  
ONE bowl! E-Z  P-Z! Gotta love it! 

(hover over photo to pin) 


1 (16 ozs.) box devil's food or fudge cake mix
2 eggs
1/3 c. vegetable oil
1 (12 ozs.) bag chocolate chips 
(peanut butter chips are good with chocolate cake mix too!)

Preheat oven to 350*. Grease a 9" X 13" baking dish; set aside.

In a large bowl, add eggs, whisk well, then add cake mix and oil. 
Batter will be thick.  Stir in chocolate chips and combine. 

Press batter into the prepared pan (I like to sprinkle a few chips over the top
before baking); bake 20-25 minutes or until toothpick stuck in the middle comes out clean. 

Yield: 12 - 15 servings 

(Why not top them with ice cream while they're warm and then add
some chocolate syrup over the top!?  Your family will love you for it!)
