We were hosting our final confirmation group last weekend and if I learned anything, 16-year-old girls love sweet over savory. Well, at least this group of 13 does.
The meeting came up quicker than I could prepare so I hit the pantry for any shortcut ideas. Finding a box of chocolate cake mix, I decided to adapt the Cake Mix Blondie recipe I made for them a few months ago and make a triple chocolate cookie bar made from Chocolate Cake Mix.
I had run out of chocolate chips so I added white chocolate chips, and maybe too many. If you need a recipe to feed a crowd in a pinch, these cookie bars made from cake mix are definitely the way to go. Of course, you can always make cake mix cookies in a pinch too.
How to Make Chocolate Cake Mix Bar Cookies
This is a great recipe to get the kids in the kitchen. Only a few ingredients and in about 10 minutes your dessert batter is made for any dessert-loving crowd.
The batter will be very stiff, but if you feel it is unspreadable, add another tablespoon of water. You don’t want it runny though. Remember it is cookie dough.
Look what comes out of the oven. Your kitchen will be bursting with amazing scents. Serve it slightly warm for the ultimate flavor burst in your mouth. Maybe add a scoop of vanilla ice cream too. I simply covered them up and cut them the next day.
How can anyone resist this incredibly easy sweet treats? They are a little crumbly but that might be because I baked them too long. Be sure to check on them before the timer goes off.
