I take these bars to work for Friday pick-me-ups. I love to share them because they're so easy to eat, easy to make and easy on the wallet. —Amy Rose, Ballwin, Missouri

MY REVIEW

"Made these bars because I had lots of cake mixes given to me. They were a hit! The beauty part of this is you can use any flavor cake mix and stir in any variety of chips to suit. I made carrot cake/walnut, yellow/dark chocolate, M&M, lemon/ white choc. chip and our favorite yellow with butterscotch chips and walnuts. Gonna try strawberry/white choc chip soon and yellow with p.b. chips and chopped peanuts. Used 9x13 and the larger cake mixes (18oz ) came out more cake like and the smaller (15oz) came out more dense. Great recipe and simple!"

"There is not enough batter to fill a 15x10 pan so I used a 9x13 and baked for 22 minutes. FANTASTIC and will definitely make again. I am going to try cinnamon cake mix with cinnamon chips. This recipe is a keeper."

"Quick and easy. This is a good recipe to let little kids help with. My 3 year old added the ingredients and helped mix."

"I have found it is just as easy to buy the Funfetti cake mixes and use those rather than adding jimmies to a plain mix. I made a pretty one with the Stars and Stripes mix out at 4th of July. One complaint with this recipe is that it's hard to spread batter in pan--not so much fault of the recipe--I believe it is because of the now-reduced cake mix sizes. They used to be 18 oz.; now a regular mix is 15.25 ounces. Does make a difference! Anyways, had to use floured hands/spoon to spread out and make work!"

"Absolutely delicious and so easy! I do use a 9X13 pan instead so they're a little thicker. I've made these 4 times already!"
