Cake mix cookie bars are perfect for making easy, quick cookies in a matter of minutes.



  • 1 package Yellow Cake Mix ( 15.25 ounces)
  • 1 stick (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter, melted
  • 2  large eggs
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Lightly grease a 9 x 13 baking pan. Line the pan with parchment paper leaving a 2-inch overhand on the long sides. Lightly grease the parchment paper. The overhang is for “handles” to lift the cookie bars out of the pan for easier cutting when cooled.
  3. In a large bowl, using your hands or large spoon, mix the cake mix, eggs, and melted butter until thoroughly blended.
  4. Fold in the nuts and chocolate chips until the nuts and chips are evenly distributed thru the dough. The dough will be very stiff and sticky.
  5. Turn the dough out into the baking pan, spreading it out until the dough is evenly covering the entire bottom of the pan.
  6. Place the pan in the oven and bake 18-20 minutes or until golden-brown and firm around the edges.
  7. Remove the pan from the oven onto a wire rack. Allow to cool completely Life out of the pan by the handles onto a flat surface. Cut into squares and enjoy!


To make mixing and spreading easier, I lightly grease my fingers before handling the dough.
