We were scheduled to cook dinner with a group of friends yesterday evening, and, even though I hadn’t had the best day, I knew time with friends would be a good way to take my mind off things. Of course, I’m not going to show up to eat dinner anywhere empty-handed, so I perused the pantry to see what I had to work with. Bean had talked about making brownies, so those were out, but I had a few things I thought I might could throw together for a cookie bar. I didn’t take a before picture because I was scared of what I was going to end up with, but I’m learning to take the photo anyway… just in case! So far almost all of my attempts at throwing things together have been successful!
1 box white cake mix
1 can Eagle Brand milk
3/4 cup milk chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees
- Grease and flour (or use floured baking spray) a 9″ x 13″ pan
- Combine cake mix and Eagle Brand using a mixer, it takes a little work
- Fold in chocolate chips
- Press into prepared pan
- Bake for 22-25 minutes or until golden brown
- Serve warm
These cookie bars were super easy and really good! Here’s what was left:
Mr. Gray and I had a great time with friends, and it really helped me to get out of the emotional day I’d had for a while and talk about the good times with Papa. God has been so faithful in providing amazing friends and family to surround us with.
