Shortcut Chocolate Chip Bars

Yellow cake mix makes these Shortcut Chocolate Chip Bars super easy to make as well as a softer cookie bar recipe. The cake mix serves as a great shortcut because all of the dry ingredients are already mixed together. These bars are perfectly chewy and have a wonderfully dense chocolate chip cookie flavor. They're easy to make for large crowds and share with friends, but are also just as easy to hoard for yourself. These dessert bars prove that sometimes baking from scratch can be really overrated.
