Today’s cake mix recipe is for a simple cookie bar. These are moist and chocolaty. Not only doe this recipe use a cake mix but it gets even more most with the addition of a package of pudding. They are called cookie bars but have more of a brownie like consistency. The great thing about these kind of recipes is you can change the cake mix and the chocolate chips for a new version.
How about using a chocolate cake mix and chocolate pudding with peanut butter chips? Or how about M & M candies in place of the chocolate chips? Or you could even use a devils food cake mix and fudge pudding mix with white chocolate chips. The possibilities are endless.
- 1 pkg yellow cake mix (I used Betty Crocker)
- 1 small (3.4 oz) box instant vanilla pudding
- ¼ cup water
- ¾ cup vegetable oil
- 2 eggs
- 1½ cup chocolate chips
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
- In a large bowl,combine cake mix, pudding, water, vegetable oil, eggs and chips. Mix until well combined.
- Spread the dough into a greased 9×13 baking dish.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes until edges are golden and middle looks set. (I tested with a toothpick) Makes 15-20 bars.
