These were very good and so easy.I had milk chocolate chips on hand,so that is what I used.I want to try other flavors of cake mix and chips(ie:butterscotch chips,peanut butter chips,semi-sweet)I didn't find them 'dry',the top is somewhat crumbly,but the filling was fudgy.The kids enjoyed them in their lunch boxes.
I made this last night to take to a potluck at work.They were good,very chewy,but I would save a little less of the crumbs for the topping or drizzle the top with more of the sweetened condensed milk and chocolate filling to make it more moist.It was great, just a little dry and I only cooked it for the minimum time.
