Chocolate Chip Cherry Chunky Bars


I made these bars for Christmas Eve and they were a huge hit! 

Even John loved them, which is saying something because he usually questions any dessert that I put "fruit" in! 


They are also CAKE MIX RECIPE #59


Your Shopping List for the Chocolate Chip Cherry Chunky Bars:
  • 1 box vanilla cake mix 
  • 1 stick butter, melted
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 bag semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 8oz container red candy cherries, roughly chopped (you can find them in the baking aisle)



Now Let's Make the Chocolate Chip Cherry Chunky Bars:
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9x13 pan with nonstick spray or butter
  2. In a large mixing bowl combine the cake mix, melted butter, and beaten eggs until a soft dough forms
  3. Fold in the chocolate chips and the cherries 
  4. Press dough into prepared pan
  5. Bake for 25 - 30 minutes until the edges of the bars are lightly browned
  6. Remove from oven and use the back of the spatula to press down over the surface of the bars, making them flat
  7. Cool completely in pan
  8. Cut into 24 squares and store in an airtight container

All you need for this recipe is a rubber spatular, mixing bowl, and 9x13 pan!  No mixer required! 


If your local food store doesn't carry the red cherries, you can get them on Amazon here:
