can’t leave alone bars


I found this recipe four years ago in a Gooseberry Patch Christmas cookbook that I borrowed from the library. They taste like a yellow cake meets a chocolate chip cookie, with a brownie texture! I put these bars and some other sweets on a tray for my (then-boyfriend) Steve’s family. I think that cookie platter was the reason they decided to keep me. ;)


18 1/4 ounce package white cake mix
2 eggs
1/3 cup oil
14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
6-ounce package semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup (half a stick) butter, sliced


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine cake mix, eggs, and oil in a bowl; mix well. Press two-thirds of the mixture into a greased 13x9 inch baking dish.

Combine condensed milk, chocolate chips, and butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave, uncovered, on HIGH for 45 seconds. Stir, and then microwave again for 45 to 60 seconds, or until the chips are melted. Stir until smooth—then pour over cake mixture in pan.

Drop remaining cake mixture by teaspoonfuls randomly over the top. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until light golden. Let cool before cutting into squares.

Makes 3 dozen.


  1. Oh my that looks so good! Reminds me of Dump Cake a little. I'm going to have to try this!

  2. These sound tasty! Bonus that they are really easy. I'm always a fan of easy baking.

  3. Those look AMAZING! And dangerous! haha.

  4. Oh wow! I think I have to try these.

  5. Whoa those look delicious. Thanks for the comment! You have such a cute blog. I'm looking forward to checking out more of it. (:

  6. Just made this. Had to use a smaller 9 X 5 instead of 9 X 13 glass dish which made the chocolate a little thicker I guess.... but doesn't matter! Delicious! If you make this, you better have a big glass of milk ready! Sorry for the anonymous, didn't know how to do any others. Vonda

  7. Made these today and they are heavenly! I love how simple they are but really are wonderful! Definitely will make again soon!


Thank you so much for your comments! I enjoy reading each one!
