This filling is addictively delicious…

You guys, it’s whoa, whoa! Our minds were blown when we discovered the beauty of cake mix cookie bars. This is a new confection that you may not have tried before. It’s basically a mix of store-bought cakes that is transformed into cookie dough. The cookie dough is then filled with a delicious filling. Although a yellow, or even chocolate cake mix would work well here, we decided to keep it classic and use a white cake mix with vanilla extract. After the dough has been mixed, one half of the “cookie dough”, is divided and pressed into a 9×13 baking pan. The filling …. is next.

Serves 12-16
1 hour


1 (15.25 oz.) box white cake mix
1/2 cup canola oil
2 eggs
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup butterscotch or peanut butter chips
1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt, optional


Preheat oven to 350º F and lightly grease a 9×13-inch baking dish with butter or non-stick spray.

In a large bowl, beat together cake mix, canola oil, eggs and vanilla extract, mixing until mixture just comes together.

Divide batter in half and press one half into prepared baking dish to form an even layer.

In a medium, heat-proof bowl, butter, chocolate chips and butterscotch chips, then microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring in between, until mixture is fully melted and smooth.

Stir condensed milk and salt, if using, into chocolate chip mixture until completely incorporated, then pour over base cake layer.

Drop spoonfuls of remaining batter over chocolate chip middle layer, then place baking dish in oven.

Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until top is golden brown, then remove from oven and let cool.

Once cool, slice into bars, serve and enjoy!
