Fran’s Bars

Fran’s Bars
(2 doz. Servings)


1 box Yellow Cake Mix
8 tbsp. Butter, melted
1 Egg
1 pkg. (12 oz.) Chocolate Chips
1 can (14 oz.) Sweetened Condensed Milk


In a medium size bowl, mix the cake mix, butter and egg until combined.  Take ¾ of mixture and spread to cover the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish.  Be sure to spray the pan before filling.  In a separate microwavable bowl, melt chips using 30 second times.  After 3 turns in the microwave, stir the chips with a rubber spatula until smooth.  They may need another time in the microwave depending on individual microwaves.  Once smooth, add the milk and mix thoroughly before spreading over cake mixture.  Be sure to cover completely and then crumble remaining cake mixture over the chip mixture.  Place in a pre-heated 350 degree oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until top is lightly browned.  Cool completely on a wire rack before cutting 4 by 6 for 2 dozen bars.

Note:               This is a recipe from one of my mother’s friends.  I believe it
                           could be nice to use chocolate cake mix and white chips for
                           a different look and taste.  I have not tried it yet but do plan
                           on trying it.

Ideas for Future Efforts

  1. Tried chocolate cake mix and peanut butter chips for a reunion picnic and it was a hit. Want to try choc cake and cherry chips for the holidays. Did do a strawberry mix with white chips. Also very good. A versatile recipe.
