This is an old Betty Crocker Recipe. Although I tend to prefer recipes that don't use cake mixes, this recipe happens to be exceptionally decadent and delicious. Last time I made them they were practically inhaled.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Using a 9x13" pan, pour the melted butter or margarine into the pan and tilt it around to coat the bottom completely.
  3. Sprinkle the cake mix over melted butter.
  4. Then, sprinkle with the marshmallows, then the chocolate chips, then the coconut and lastly, the nuts.
  5. Pour the condensed milk evenly over all.
  6. Bake for about 30 minutes, until golden brown.
  7. Remove from the oven and run a knife around the edges to loosen.
  8. Then let it cool before cutting into 1 1/2 x 1" bars.
  9. Makes about 6 dozen cookies.
  10. Note: To save yourself a step and a dish to wash, you can put the butter or margarine right in the baking pan and heat it a low oven before raising the heat to 350° to preheat.
  11. Also, I found that in some ovens it might brown a bit too quickly.
  12. Check it while baking.
  13. If it does brown too quickly, cover with tin foil to keep it from browning any more, and remove for the last 5 minutes or so of baking.

So chewy and good! We couldn't stop eating them! I used FF sweetened condensed milk. They turned out great. I would recommend spraying the sides with non-stick spray though. They stuck to the sides quite a bit. They didn't stick to the bottom though because of the butter and cake batter. SOOO GOOD!!!

These little bars are really easy to prepare and have a wonderfully sweet flavor! I did have to lightly cover the top with foil to keep the top from browning too fast. The only change I made was using chopped pecans instead of mixed nuts, because that is all I had on hand. Great dessert! Thanks Charmed!
