Here’s what you’ll need to make Cake Mix Cookie Bars (the exact measurements and full recipe instructions are below in the easy to print recipe card):

Yellow cake mix – any brand you like will work.
Eggs – we used large eggs.
Butter – regular salted butter is just right for this recipe.
Semi-sweet chocolate chips – be sure to use semi-sweet chocolate chips and not milk chocolate which will easily burn while the cookie bars bake. Semi-sweet chocolate chips (or even chocolate chunks) give these bars the familiar chocolate flavor we all love.
