I have been making these for years and years. They are my daughter's favorite treat and she asks for them every birthday or holiday. I leave out the butter since it just isn't needed. These are super fast to make and absolutely delicious. I have made them with chocolate cake mix and yellow cake mix. I have never added nuts since my family doesn't love them but I could definitely see them being good addition. I loved the idea of using Andes chocolates and I am going to try that soon. I almost always have everything on hand to make these if I need to whip up a quick treat for something. I just made two pans today for a Girl Scout dinner tonight. It took no time at all!

This dessert is so yummy!!! I use yellow cake mix instead of white, but both ways are great tasting.

I have made this a few times now and it is always enjoyed. For me the best part is that I
would normally have everything on hand to make this, and it is so simple.

I also found this one in a TOH Quick Cooking book years ago, and these bars are a hit every single time I make them. They are easy to whip up, inexpensive, and a nice, rich treat. Who could ask for more?!

I found this in Taste of Home Quick COoking Jan/Feb 2001. Who knew you could make a cookie out of a cake mix that tastes great? I didn't have chocolate chips, but I had Andes mints and used those instead. DELICIOUS! Thanks for posting!

These bars are so quick and easy to put together. I used the white cake mix with chocolate chips as the recipe called for but I want to try them wit the peanut butter/ chocolate chips with cake mix. I had everything on hand to make these which is a plus. I will be making them again for my DD's graduation party. Made for Ali Baba's Babes ZWT5.

These are so yummy! I made a few changes though. I used chocolate cake mix, and a combo of peanut butter chips and chocolate chips, Mmmm! Thanks :) Made this for the Rail Riding Rowdies ZWT5.

Oh, these are delish! I know there are a few left in my kitchen because they keep calling my name and I Can't Leave Them Alone!!! These were incredibly easy to put together and great for a quickie snack. I used a yellow cake mix and I'm sure a chocolate mix would really, really take care of a chocoholic's needs. Thanks jellyko!

I have been making this for awhile now and it is so popular! I give it 5 stars for simplicity, and probably 4 for taste (I reserve 5 for blow my mind taste). Anyhow, if we get invited somewhere or need something in a pinch, this is it. Always a hit, always gone! I have used yellow, white, vanilla cake mixes - I'm sure you can try anything imagineable that you like with chocolate (or even change the flavor of the chips!)
