Tasty Tuesday – Chocolate Chip Bars

Happy Tuesday!  This week, our church is having a chili cook-off, and I volunteered to make some cornbread and a couple desserts.  Since I have five pounds of ground turkey to tackle tonight for my chili, I decided to do all of my baking last night.  And this recipe was one I tried out for one of the desserts.  It sounded very easy to make, and I had everything in the pantry to use.  My kind of recipe!  And since it can double as a Tasty Tuesday post, it’s a win-win situation.

The recipe for the Chocolate Chip Bars came out of “The Best of Amish and Mennonite Cooking” cookbook that I used last week as well.


Chocolate Chip Bars, Mary Ann Mast, page 383

1 yellow cake mix

1/4 c. oil

2 eggs

1/4 c. water

2 c. chocolate chips

Mix all ingredients and put in a greased 9″x13″ pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.  Serves 12-14 people.

Variation:  Use a chocolate cake mix and peanut butter chips instead.

I did bake mine a little bit longer, since the mix was still very jiggly at 15 minutes.  I can’t say how they taste, since they are for tomorrow night, but they sure smelled good when they came out of the oven.  I’ll post next week if they were a thumbs up or down.  I sure hope a thumbs up, since I’m taking them to church.  LOL


I think the variation of a chocolate cake mix and peanut butter chips would be delicious too and might have to give that a try if these turn out okay.

We have been experiencing spring like weather these past few days, and I am loving it.  Hope you are too wherever you might be.  Trees are starting to bud and bulbs are pushing themselves through the dirt.

Have a great week!
