Chocolate Chip Bar Cookies from a Cake Mix

Monday, December 16, 2013

As most of you know, I bake for our church's Monday Outreach Program every week.  I try to bake easy recipes and found this great bar cookie recipe a few weeks ago that I'm sharing with you today.  They came out so delicious.  I know these will become a regular for the outreach and for other school/church functions that I bake for AND...they start out with a cake mix! 

Chocolate Chip Bar Cookies...

Chocolate Chip Bar Cookies


1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup water
1 egg
1 box yellow cake mix
2 cups chocolate chips
1 cup chopped walnuts, optional


In a mixing bowl, using an electric mixer, cream together the butter and sugar.
Add the water and egg.
Add the yellow cake mix and combine well.
Stir in the chocolate chips and chopped walnuts; if using.
Pour mixture into a 9 X 13 size pan that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.
Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 to 35 minutes or until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean.
Let cool slightly before cutting in serving pieces.

Delicious and Easy...


  1. I like the idea of baking cookies from cake mix very delicious and easy to put together though.

    I could go for one right now too!
