With as busy as we all are these days, I’ve got a mega simple bar recipe for you today that is tasty as can be!

You probably have the ingredients you need right in your pantry. So get out your favorite Yellow Cake Mix and let’s get started.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!


I don’t use chocolate chunks a lot, but when I do I try to make them count!

They are just the needed touch in these bars. Chocolate chunks are always so delightful, don’t you think?


Now about the butterscotch pudding. You can leave it out and the bars will turn out just fine. I like to add it because the pudding adds an extra hint of butterscotch in the bars.

Remember though, you will be adding butterscotch chips. So if you don’t have butterscotch pudding, or don’t want to add it, that’s just fine. :)


There’s just something special about butterscotch – these bars tend to disappear in no time at all!
