Exceptionally easy to make and superbly versatile, this simple recipe is great for those who don't want to bake in the oven, but want a sweet treat still. This could also be an excellent recipe for teachers to use in classrooms or parents to use with their children. I absolutely love this recipe and I recommend it to everyone! (except maybe diabetics!)
Be careful! This is a VERY SWEET treat. I can barely eat a whole one, although I want so much more. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Be sure to leave a comment about your creative ideas and variations.
- 1 box (2 Cups) White or Yellow Cake Mix, I used Halloween, yellow mix but you can use any kind
- 2 Cups Powdered Sugar (Confectioner's Sugar)
- 1/2 Cup (1 stick) Real Butter, Cut into four pieces
- 1/4 Cup Milk
- 1/2 Cup White Chocolate Chips, I used white but you could use any kind (Reese's, caramel, chocolate, etc.)
- (Optional) Sprinkles, Or any other topping you like
- (Optional) Toffee, I used Health in mine; You could add just about any kind of candy
- In a microwaveable bowl, stir together cake mix and powder sugar.
- Add four slices of butter and milk. Do not stir.
- Microwave on high for 2 minutes, or until butter is mostly melted(standard 1100 wat microwave).
- Blend mixture together quickly. Add chocolate chips before the mixture cools and stir together. Blend together well.
- Fold in sprinkles for color. (I also used toffee here)
- Immediately spread mixture in an 8x8 pan. (I used a standard 7x11 casserole dish for thinner squares, but more of them). Press sprinkles into top of mixture. (I also used toffee here)
- Refrigerate until solid. (I refrigerated mine for less than an hour and it was too hard to cut. I left it out for about 30 minutes, cut easily into squares, and stored in a Tupperware in the fridge until ready to serve).

Isn't eating raw dough bad for me, though?
The short answer: NOT REALLY
On cookie dough: http://www.foodbeast.com/2014/03/08/eating-raw-cookie-dough-wont-make-you-sick-probably/
On cake mix: You should be fine as long as there are no eggs or baking powder and you limit yourself.
