Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

I have to admit that I was forced into the kitchen today to bake for an event tomorrow.  I’m glad it worked out that way, because I found a recipe that not only gets a thumbs-up from my kids, but it starts with a boxed cake mix.  So really it was no big deal to mix it together and wait the 20 whole minutes for it to bake.  I have a feeling it will quickly disappear from the dessert table tomorrow too.  It’s hard to resist mini chocolate chips sprinkled on top of anything, don’t you think?  They’re like a magnet.  A teeny tiny chocolate magnet.  Oh, brother.  Can you tell I’m hungry?  I think there’s a chocolate chip cookie bar calling my name.

Recipe:  Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

(very slightly adapted from

1 boxed yellow cake mix
2 eggs
1/4 c. packed light brown sugar
1/4 c. melted butter
1/4 c. water
1/2 – 1 c. mini chocolate chips, to your liking

Lightly spray a 9×13 baking pan with nonstick cooking spray and preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Combine all ingredients, except chocolate chips, in a mixing bowl.  Mix with electric hand mixer at medium speed for 2 minutes.  Stir in mini chocolate chips.  Transfer batter to prepared pan and spread evenly.  Sprinkle top with additional mini chocolate chips, if desired.  Bake for 20-25 minutes.  Cool completely and cut into squares.

    Anything that starts with a cake mix goes straight to the top of the list for me- less ingredients! :)
