There is just something about chocolate chip cookie bars that bring you back to your childhood and make you feel warm and cozy all over. There’s nothing like a warm chocolate chip cookie and a tall glass of milk to put a smile on your face and a happy feeling in your heart.

What I love most about this recipe is that it is literally four ingredients that you can pick up anywhere and probably already have in your pantry.

Hacks are one of Jenn from Princess Pinky Girls favorite things! I had no idea all of the great desserts you could make that starts out with just a box of cake mix! Got a box of cake mix in your house? Just grab it and check out these Boxed Cake Mix Hacks that Jenn pulled together!

Cake Mix cookies and bars are the absolute easiest because it cuts out multiple ingredients and a ton of measuring! There’s just nothing easier to make and they always turn out delicious! I’m telling you… my family loved them!

Ingredients needed to make Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

Tips

  • You can use any brand of cake mix for this cake mix hack! I typically use Pillsbury but any brand works.
  • I’ve used white cake mixes and chocolate cake mix for these bars and they both turn out really well but my favorite is definitely the yellow cake mix.
  • Use a hand or stand mixer to quickly mix everything together but be sure to use a wooden spoon to mix in the chocolate chips.
  • If you’re going to eat these warm out of the oven, add a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top! It’s amazing!
  • These bars keep really well but be sure to keep them covered or in an airtight container. By day 4 I did notice they were getting a little dry though.

    I’ve learned that mini chips work best. Ive also used chocolate cake with mint chips, carrot cake with cream cheese chips, when I can find them. All were great
