I know I’ve shared cake mix cookie bars on the blog before, but this recipe is even easier! Just a few ingredients, and a little oven time and you can have an entire pan of chewy, yummy cookies. I mean, your kids can have a pan. Because I made it for them. Seriously. It wasn’t my insane PMS-induced chocolate cravings that prompted me to make an entire 9 x 13 pan of cookies. *ahem* Moving on –
Mr. Three requested M&M’s on the cookies. I’m cool with that. There is just something about that candy that screams happy. If I could leave jars of them around the house, just for decoration I would. However, they wouldn’t last a microsecond in my house. We have chocolate issues.
I like this recipe because it calls for a lot less oil than other recipes I’ve seen, and as you can see, this is a dense cookie texture, not a fluffy cake-like texture. And they are super fast and easy to throw together. This is probably not a good thing for my waistline. I mean really, a whole pan of cookies in less than 30 minutes?! Dangerous.
Cake Mix Cookie Bars
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Spray a 9 x 13 pan with cooking spray.
- Mix together first 3 ingredients in a medium size bowl until dough comes together in a thick dough (it will be like cookie dough, not like cake batter)
- Stir in your preferred mix-ins.
- Press dough into prepared pan and bake for 15-20 minutes.
- Allow to cool (I’m kidding…of course you are going to dive right in to hot cookies! But just in case you are making them to take somewhere, let them cool before cutting into bars!)
