Cake Mix Bars

This recipe was a definite winner!  It reminded us of another favorite, Chewy Caramel Bars, only it was a LOT easier to make.


  • 1 package (18-1/4 ounces) white cake mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
  • ¼ cup butter or margarine, cubed


In a bowl, combine the dry cake mix, eggs and oil.  With floured hands, press two-thirds of the mixture into a greased 13x9x2 baking pan.  Set remaining cake mixture aside.

In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the milk, chocolate chips and butter.  Microwave, uncovered, on high for 45 seconds; stir.  Microwave 45-60 seconds longer or until chips and butter are melted; stir until smooth.  Pour over crust.

Drop teaspoonfuls of remaining cake mixture over top.  Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned.  Cool before cutting.
