Not sure if your family is like mine or not . . . . . well, I take that back; there aren’t too many families that are like mine; but anyway . . . . . . towards the end of the month monies get tight so I start cleaning out the pantry to make whatever.  Having two sensory issue children, that usually causes issues because they rarely try anything new and if the texture changes; oh heaven help us!  But that is beside the point.

I bought a box of Jiffy Golden Yellow Cake Mix this month to bake a cake.  My grandmother used Jiffy products a lot and always had good results so I thought I would give it a shot.

Just before baking the cake, I noticed a recipe on the side of the box for Chewy Bars.

All I can say is, “OH MY WORD!”

They are delicious!

1 pkg Jiffy Golden Yellow Cake Mix
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 TBSP margarine or butter, softened
1 TBSP corn syrup
1/4 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1 egg
1 TBSP water
2 TBSP flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease an 8″ square pan.  In small bowl, blend all ingredients well.  Spread in prepared pan.  Bake 25 – 30 minutes.  Cool and cut into bars.

Now, my family does not eat walnuts, so I put 3/4 chocolate chips in ours and I cut ours into squares instead of bars.  Our oven cooks at a higher temperature, so I had to turn the temperature down and extend the cooking time.  Just make your own variations based on your own oven.

Anyway, they turned out GREAT!

I hope you will give them a try!
