My cake mix cookie bars are my number one go-to easy dessert recipe. This recipe is one of the most loved on my blog. Don’t miss it!
Many years ago, my mother-in-law introduced me to using cake mixes to make cookies. Mind=blown!
CAKE MIX COOKIE BARS RECIPE INGREDIENTS:
1 Box yellow cake mix (I used Betty Crocker)
1 Small box instant vanilla pudding (just put in the powder!)
1/4 Cup water
3/4 Cup vegetable oil
1 Cup chocolate chips. I used 1/2 cup holiday mini M&M’s and 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips. INSTRUCTIONS:
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Combine cake mix, pudding, water, vegetable oil, eggs, and chips or M&M’s in large bowl.
Pour the batter (it’s going to be thick) into a greased 9×13 pan. I sprayed my dish with nonstick cooking spray which worked well.
Bake your bars for 20-30 minutes (I took mine out at 25.)
It may look sort of raw in the middle but if the edges are just golden and starting to get crispy, it’s probably perfect.
