Notes

These bars WILL harden in a few minutes. Just make sure your chips are melted.
You can mix and match your toppings (chocolate chips, heath bits, nuts, coconut, etc.) to your liking. You can’t have too much or too many!
I sometimes double this recipe and put it in a 10x13 (or lasagna size) dish. Allow extra cooking time. I judge this dessert as done when the cake mix that pokes through the top starts to brown. If you don't cook it enough it will just be gooier!

    1. Hey, Jennifer. Thanks for commenting on my almost candy bars. I have no idea how the brownie mix would be instead of the cake mix but you could certainly try it! I guess just mix the brownie mix and oil together and then layer the other ingredients. You might want to cook it less and see if it needs any longer. Let me know if you try it because I’m sure we’d love that, too!

  2. So glad you had Stephanie make these for us. They were awesome. So good in fact that I’m buying the ingredients to make some to get us through this snowstorm we’re going to have. Forget milk & bread. I need chocolate. And I will probably have some of these for breakfast during one of the snow days.

  4. Do you use just the cake mix and butter or do you make the cake mix( with eggs and oil) following the recipe?
