For today’s Midweek Mental Health Break, I present:

Can’t Leave ‘Em Alone Bars

  • 1 pkg. white cake mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 c. vegetable oil
  • 1-14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 c. semi-sweet chcolate chips
  • 1/4 c. butter, cubed

In a bowl, combine the dry cake mix, eggs and oil.  With floured hands, press into a greased 13x9x2″ pan. Use about 2/3 of the mixture and set aside the rest.

In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the milk, chocolate chips and butter.  Microwave on hight 45-60 seconds. Stir.  Microwave an additional 45-60 seconds or until chips and butter are melted.  Stir until smooth.  Pour over crust.

Drop teaspoonfuls of the remaining cake mixture over the top.

Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes until lightly browned.  Cool completely before cutting.
