So it’s the day before Christmas Eve and you probably have a million things to do still…if baking is one of them, try this quick recipe. These are the ones on the plate of cookies that everyone loves and it just kind of makes me want to roll my eyes because I’d prefer compliments on the true homemade cookies, not the ‘doctored up cake mix’ ones! Lol 😝
Give yourself a break and allow yourself to use a cake mix! You’ll have something to share with company and still have time to get the rest of your wrapping done too! You’re welcome!
Can’t Leave Alone Bars
1 White or Yellow Cake Mix
1/3 cup oil
1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
1 cup semi sweet choc. Chips
1/4 cup butter or margarine, cubed.
(nuts and coconut are optional additions)
Combine cake mix, oil and eggs – press 2/3 into bottom of greased 13×9 pan. Set aside.
In microwave safe bowl combine milk, choc. chips, and butter. Microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring between each one, until mixture is melted and combined.
Pour melted chocolate mixture over the prepared crust.
If topping with additional nuts and/or coconut (I topped mine with crushed walnuts) add them on top of the chocolate layer now, prior to rest of cake mix layer.
Top with the rest of the cake mix mixture by placing small pieces spread out over the chocolate layer.
Add some festive sprinkles.
Bake at 350* for 20-25 minutes. I cut into small 1- 1.5″ squares to put on many plates of Christmas cookies!
