I really love butterscotch and it is so decadent combined with chocolate. These little bars might just be my new favorite dessert. Did I mention the recipe uses a cake mix?

Yes! It is so very easy to make! This can be whipped up in hardly any time at all for an amazing treat.

You have to give this a try. I am drooling just thinking about these delicious little bars.

We also have an easy blondie recipe that is amazing.

I love cake mix cookies – I honestly do!! However, sometimes cookies just take too long to make…

I know I am lazy! All that scooping and stuff can be time consuming. 🙂 Remember, I am not a very good baker!

So I thought why not make cookie bars? This is the perfect solution when you want the taste of cookies but without all of the scooping.

You only need a few ingredients to make a delicious dessert! If you can mix everything up in a bowl and dump it into a pan, then you can do this.

Even the non-baker like myself can handle this baking. Haha!

First, preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine all the ingredients in a mixing bowl. The batter will be thick but this is normal.

Fold in the butterscotch chips.

Spray the 9×13 pan with nonstick cooking spray. Press the batter into the prepared baking pan – you will have to press it out.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Allow it to cool slightly before cutting (or they will fall apart!).

Variation ideas:

  • Try adding nuts to the recipe. Pecan or walnut would taste amazing.
  • Try other chips such as white chocolate, peanut butter, dark chocolate and more.
  • I think peanut butter morsels and peanut frosting would be yummy.
  • We used a yellow cake mix but you can use chocolate or devil’s food.

Stock up when cake mixes go on sale!

I like to buy several cake mixes when I spot a good sale at the grocery store. We tend to have lots of last minute baking needs and having this in the pantry means it’s not a problem!

It seems we always need to bring a snack or dessert to this event or that function. Since you don’t need many ingredients, they are so easy to mix up on the spur of the moment.

We can easily make these to take to a get together or event on a moments notice. The kids have even had a bunch of friends over and we made these quickly.

By shopping when things are on sale I save money on groceries and it really helps our budget.  If you have a crazy schedule, it can even be accomplished during busy week with quick and easy recipes like this one.

I actually cut our grocery bill by 50% off by following these 8 Tips for for Saving Money on Groceries by Menu Planning! You can do the same thing and use that money for something else!

This is a great way to enjoy dessert on a budget. It can be done! We also love to make quick and easy cake balls for another tasty dessert idea.

I also like to use parchment paper when I bake. It helps make clean up easy.

If you don’t have a wire rack, they are so handy to help cool the bars completely if you plan to take them out and then cut them.

I would definitely pick up a set if you don’t have any. They will get used a lot if you bake.

Go ahead and make a double batch. You will thank me. ?

They are great for lunch box treats for the kids and much cheaper than store bought prepackages snacks and such.

We all love them and they definitely do not go to waste. It’s hard to eat just one.

This recipe is perfect in a 9×13 baking dish. The ones with the lid are really handy if you are taking this dish somewhere.

It is so easy and everyone always loves these bars. I often take them to holidays, cook outs and more because everyone loves them so much!

I don’t mind at all because the recipe is so easy and not hard to make at all. Plus, the ingredients are really simple and inexpensive.

  1. Carrie,
    I found a really easy cake mix cookie bar recipe recently. Its a yellow cake mix, 5 tbsp of melted butter, 2 eggs beaten, and 2 cups of chocolate chips, m&m’s or probably any candy. Mix all together, put in 9×13 pan at 350 for 20 minutes. They are easy and yummy!!!
