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

"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."
