Easy Dessert Fix

Sunday was clearly a baking frenzy! I made the pretzel rolls mentioned in the post below, roasted a turkey for our favorite turkey & swiss pretzel sandwiches. Finally, we had a dessert craving (...well, really I did). I'll post tomorrow about how we used the turkey leftovers.

I use this cookie recipe when I need something fast, easy and delicious. It's certainly nothing fancy, but its foolproof and great for when you need a little somethin' sweet last minute. And best of all, they taste exactly like chocolate chip cookie cake. If you prefer, you can get creative and substitute any type of chips or cake mix for your own creation. I've also done spice cake & raisins when I'm trying to pretend to be healthy. This is our personal favorite.

Polka Dot Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

1/2 cup butter (room temperature)
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup water
1 egg
1 (18.25 ounce) package yellow cake mix
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
1 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch baking pan. In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar with a mixer. Mix in water and egg, then cake mix. Finally, stir in vanilla and chocolate chips. Spread mixture into pan. Cookie dough will be thin but will puff up when baking. Bake for 28 to 30 minutes in the preheated oven.
