Reviews forEasy Cake Mix Bars
"Family thought it was rather plain, just cake with chips and too sweet. Great idea though."
"Used red velvet cake mix and white chocolate chips. As others suggested, used a 13x9 pan. I thought the thickness was appropriate, although, had issues with crumbling after cooling and cutting. Perhaps it's because I live at high altitude? I baked as directed, did not adjust. Interesting and easy recipe with loads of variation options. Would try again."
"This is my favorite quick dessert recipe! Simple ingredients I always have on hand. I have substituted buttermilk and also fat free half and half, perfect, richer touch! My favorite is the yellow cake mix with chocolate chips and the red velvet with white chips. I use the 9x13 glass pan. My family loves these !"
"I baked in a stoneware jellyroll pan when completely cool bottom was a bit hard. Still very good. I'll try glass next time"
"Jimmies are sprinkles, like you put on ice cream."
"What are jimmies in this recipe?"
"What an easy and delicious dessert. There was plenty of batter to fill the 15x10x1 pan and it was easy to spread. I didn't feel it was thick at all. I made these just as the recipe states. We actually liked the fact they are thin, any thicker and I think they would be too sweet. Perfect for a potluck gathering. This would look great for the holidays with red and green jimmies."
"This is my go to for a quick dessert, because I usually have these common ingredients on hand, and the bars are always a hit. I've made numerous combos. The one that's gotten the most compliments is Red Velvet cake with white chocolate chips. When making that combo though I don't add the jimmies. I did the first time and I didn't like the way they looked in such a dark cake."
"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."
