Convenient cake mix hurries along the preparation of these tasty bars. I bring these quick-and-easy treats to church meetings, potlucks and housewarming parties. I often make a double batch so we can enjoy some at home. —Kimberly Biel, Java, South Dakota

"Awesome everyone loves them."

"I thought these were very ordinary. I made them as written and found no depth of flavor, just chocolate and white cake. They were easy to make though. If I make them again, I will add other ingredients like nuts and/or coconut."

"Took these to the Wednesday Night Church Ladies meeting and the ladies loved them. Quick and easy, they are delicious. I'm so glad I held a couple out at home for a midnight snack. xoxo"

"These were quick, easy and very good. Instead of dropping the remaining dough on top of the chocolate layer, I took varying sized pieces of dough, rolled into balls, flattened, then put all over the top. The resultant effect looked like cute polka dots, which delighted both the adults and children at the party I brought it to. Will definitely be making these again :)"
