Cake Mix Cookie Bars

Use these 4 ingredients...

To make these yummy cookie bars!

Alright, so these Cake Mix Cookie Bars are not at all healthy or real food (except for the butter and egg). But sometimes, a quick dessert is needed. I've found since we've moved to a more low grain diet, we just don't have a good stock of baking ingredients on hand since I hardly ever bake anymore! So when I want to whip up some cookies or something, what used to be a quick thing is now a big deal. 

My sister-in-law made these yummy bars while we all were at the beach and since they are super yummy and only take 4 ingredients, I wrote down the recipe. I've been keeping these ingredients on hand for when I want to make something sweet to share. Perfect for hospitality!

Easy Cake Mix Cookie Bars

1 cake mix**
1 stick butter, melted
1 egg
1 bag chocolate chips (This amount could be reduced but which is worse-- extra chocolatey cookies or an open bag of chocolate chips in the house? It's quite the predicament, I tell you!)

Mix ingredients together. Spread and press into greased 9 x 13 pan. Bake at 325 degrees for 25 minutes.

**Pretty much any combination of cake mix and chips could be used: chocolate cake mix with peanut butter chips, red velvet cake mix with white chips, yellow cake mix with chocolate chips, chocolate cake mix with mint chips, chocolate with chocolate... can you tell I love chocolate?!!

Enjoy!

That would be a good recipe to let the little help make. Sometimes all the measuring is trying for a 2 year old! Thank for sharing.

I just made these with a chocolate cake mix and milk chocolate chips and they turned out great! I've got a yellow cake mix I think I'm going to add butterscotch chips to next time. Yum!
