My mom got this recipe off a cake mix box and we have been making it for years. It is very adaptable, incredibly easy, and very rich.
- 1 (18 ounce) box chocolate cake mix
- 1⁄2 cup butter or 1⁄2 cup margarine, cold & cut into small pieces
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- 1 cup butterscotch chips
- 1 cup chopped nuts
- 1 cup flaked coconut
- 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
- Preheat oven to 325.
- Place cake mix in a medium bowl, cut in the cold butter using a pastry blender. The mixture will remain crumbly.
- Press mixture into an ungreased 10 X 15 pan.
- Sprinkle chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, nuts, and coconut over the base.
- Drizzle sweetened condensed milk over the whole pan.
- Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until lightly browned.
- Cool completely and cut into bars. (I like to cut them into large triangles).
- Note: I have used other cake mix flavors for the base, such as yellow and butter, and they turned out well.
Great! Used a white cake mix. 10 year old grand daughter made them and had a wonderful time. I'm not in a baking mood this year and this certainly fit the bill. Thanks for sharing a very good recipe. I like the cake mix for the crust much better than just flour recipe version. Gives it a little more cookie so you can actually pick up the cookie to eat it. Thanks a lot for posting.
This recipe couldn't be any easier. I melted the butter, which made it easier for the kids to spread into the pan. the first time we made it, we used leftover Christmas baking staples. It was so rich and delicious, I decided to use the basic recipe for a cookie exchange party. I will vamp it up with cranberries, pistachio, and white and dark chocolate instead of the milk chocolate and the butterscotch chips. ooh, or maybe dried apricot and walnut. yum.
5 stars! It's easy. It has very few ingredients, and it is delicious. Perfect for a Girls' Night get together or holiday party.
