Chocolate Chip Cookie with a Twist

Chocolate chip cookies are very popular and there aren't many people that will turn them down if you make them. They are perfect for holiday events like Christmas parties, Easter dinners, and Thanksgiving dinners.

Chocolate chip cookies are a staple for the cookie lover out there as people are always looking for cookie ideas for things to do them.

You can find many of the cookie gift ideas I have put together here: Creative Chocolate Chip Cookie Ideas

There is one way of taking the chocolate chip cookie to a new level that I did not mention that I go over in this recipe; the chocolate chip cookie bar.

My anniversary was just days ago and I wanted to make something special for my partner in life so I thought of this cookie bar. I plan to make delicious red velvet cupcakes, but I decided I wanted to do something new that I had never made before for him; now to just find some lovely cookie baskets to fill with the bars and we it will be presentable!

Richness

This super rich dessert is filled with chocolate morsels that melt in the mouth.

The recipe has Jello vanilla pudding mix and Betty Crocker yellow cake mix blended to a gooey consistency and baked in a Wilton cookie pan to mouth watering perfection.

This time I used a whole bag of Enjoy Life semi-sweet chocolate chips (about 2 cups) and it made the bars very rich, but if you are into a more savory taste and less richness add only 1 cup.

Preparation Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Grease bottom of 9x13 baking pan.
  2. Add Betty Crocker yellow cake mix, Jello vanilla pudding mix, eggs, vegetable oil, and water to medium sized mixing bowl. Mix well until blended.
  3. Pour in semi-sweet chocolate chips and fold into batter mixture.
  4. Once well blended pour mixture into baking pan and spread evenly over the entire bottom of pan.
  5. Bake at 350ºF for 30 minutes. Edges will be browning and middle a beautiful golden color. Note: Middle will be wobbly as it's supposed to retain a gooey center, so if you prefer a more firm cookie bar allow an extra 10 minutes cooking time.
  6. Allow to rest for about 10-15 minutes to cool and firm slightly before serving.
  7. Enjoy!

      I love quick easy recipes and this one has to be delicious with chocolate chips! Bake them in 2 - 9 x9 foil pans and you will have 2 fabulous Valentine's gifts. Just wrap each one in some pretty red or pink cellophane and add a pretty bow and it's a perfect gift for someone special!

      This looks delicious. But deadly. I don't think I'd be able to resist the temptation to eat the entire thing in one sitting if I made this.

      @Grinning Gremlin: Well that's a difficult predicament indeed! I had to restrain the hubby a few times and "pre-cut" the bars to keep control for us BOTH! Haha.

      @peachpurple - You use just about any cake mix you prefer but it can alter the flavor. Chocolate if you want a super chocolaty cookie bar even.

      However, if you are adventurous, there is a recipe over on The Fresh Loaf that teaches you how to do a homemade yellow cake mix: http://www.thefreshloaf.com/node/12422/what-can-i-...
