Cake Mix Cookie Bars


Lilluna ~ I have made these 2 different ways. I made it as written which the boys liked, but I didn’t because I’ve learned that I don’t like M&Ms! The second time I made it with just chocolate chips which the boys liked equally.

Cookies and cake mix are a fantastic combination. Try this easy Cake Mix Cookie Bar recipe.

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°F.

In a large bowl, combine cake mix, pudding, water, oil, & eggs using a mixer. Mix until well combined. Stir in chocolate chips & 1/2 cup M&Ms or just the chocolate chips if not using M&Ms.
