Week 17 football friday – happy new year!

Chocolate chip cookie bars

For week 17, I present the first of two treats on a football Friday at ESPN radio. These are chocolate chip cookie bars, made with a cake mix, and frosted with a quick homemade vanilla frosting. I used yellow cake mix and a vanilla instant pudding mix. (Use any flavor you choose for either). I ran out of patience and frosted them when they were warm, so the frosting also contained some melted chocolate chips. ☺

  • Ingredients
  • 1 cake mix, any flavor
  • 3.4 oz instant pudding mix, any flavor
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3/4 cup oil
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • Frosting – combine 2 tbs melted butter and 2 cups powdered sugar. Add enough cream or milk to get the consistency you want.

Cookie bar Directions – preheat oven to 350 for 20 minutes. Spray a 9×13 pan with baking spray. Combine cake mix, pudding mix, eggs, water and oil. Stir in chips. Spread evenly in pan. Bake 18 to 22 minutes (may seem a little undercooked, but that is ok. If you cook too long, the bars will dry out). Immediately sprinkle with more chocolate chips and gently press down. Wait about five minutes and frost. Melted chips will swirl in frosting

Go Bills!
