Recipe Friday: Funfetti Chocolate Bars

Just so we understand one another, this recipe has no nutritional value and is, in fact, pretty much a negative nutritional value. It has a lot of sugar, and sugar snags your immune system for up to six hours, while it processes the garbage out of your body.

That said, they are delicious, quick, and easy. These are good for church potlucks.

We had these at an assisted living lunch, and they were so good I looked up a few recipes online, and patched this one together.

For variety, you can substitute for the milk chocolate bars:

  • Chocolate almond bars
  • Krispy chocolate bars
  • Rolo caramel pieces
  • Peanut butter cups
  • Heath candy bars, or sprinkle Heath bits
  • Hershey kisses
  • Chocolate chips (semi-sweet or milk chocolate)
  • Butterscotch chips
  • Peanut butter chips
  • Any combination of these

These could be frosted, but it would really be overkill, I think.

Yield: 1 9×13 pan

Ingredients:

1 boxed Funfetti cake mix

1 stick (8 tablespoons) butter, melted

3 eggs

6 Hershey milk chocolate candy bars, full \ regular size, unwrapped

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350Β°.
Mix together the dry cake mix, melted butter, and eggs.
Press half the dough into a greased 9×13 baking pan.
Arrange the 6 unwrapped, whole candy bars atop the dough (If needed, break the bars so they fit the pan).
Working carefully, smooth out remaining dough on top of the candy bars.
NOTE: wet hands work well for spreading and smoothing dough.
Bake at 350Β° 13 – 16 minutes, until golden brown.
Allow to cool. Cut into bars.

  1. Man they look good!!
    I might be able to hook up our 15 lb dog to a dogsled and get to the lake (as there is a nice snow pac) feeding buddy a chocolate bar. So they have great value…LOL (I’m joking for all you too serious people)
    I’m hiding this comment from the dogs owner (my daughter).

  2. Well, just plain yummy! Funny too…..I am starting a study with 2 other ladies in my neighborhood entitled: Living a Chocolate Life. It centers on GOD’S grace for us. I am thinking yummy treats are one of those!

      1. Will do! I read first few pages…..made me laugh and crave chocolate! It is a fun and light study which we needed. We are including someone who has never done a Bible study before so this one is so perfect! The subject matter is grace.
