Take-out Tuesday, White Chocolate Butterscotch Cake Bars

Fast & fabulous is what these treats are, and they are the best of both the cookie and cake worlds-

Moist, sweet and delicious, 5 Minute prep, 30 minutes in the oven and you have a batch of cookies that will stay fresh for up to a week  ๐Ÿ˜‹


Start with a cake mix, Super Moist Butter Pecan is one of my favorites


Mix it with 1 egg, 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk, 1/2 cup milk, 1 stick of butter, vanilla extract, butterscotch and white chocolate chips


Spread batter out in a greased 9″ x 13″ baking dish


Bake for  25-30 minutes


Top  with additional chips and return to oven for a minute or 2 to melt into cake top


Let cool completely…this is the hard part! 

You will want to dig in for a taste…


Cut into squares or bars


Store covered at room temperature or refrigerate

    What a delicious bar and combo with the cake mix, butterscotch and white chocolate chips Jenna! No one needs to worry about them staying fresh for a week, they won’t last that long ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Oh my this looks amazing Jenna!….This recipe with the Butter Pecan cake mix reminds me of a dear, dear lifelong friend who had lost her battle with a kidney disease a few years ago. We were at a restaurant when she was visiting me. The dessert’s main ingredient was a Butter Pecan cake mix. When she returned home, that cake mix was no where to be found….I sent her 6 boxes of that mix and continued to do so through the years. So this brought back fond memories! Have a great week Jenna.
