Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars (with a cake mix)

This is such a great, quick, and yummy recipe. I buy cake mixes when they are super cheap and stash them specifically for this recipe.

This came from my extended family cookbook (Thanks Rachelle!)  I have also used a Devil's Food cake mix, and it created Brownie-like cookie bars. Very versatile!

Chocolate Chip Bars
Makes 12 servings

1 cake mix, yellow or white
1/2 cup vegetable oil (I have used applesauce here, and it changes the texture a little, but tastes very similar)
2 eggs
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips, mini or regular or baking M&Ms

Mix all ingredients together except chips. Put in 9x13 pan.

Press chips on top. (I literally sprinkled the last bits of the chocolate chip bag over top!)

Bake at 350 for 25-30 mins.
