Deb's "Can't Leave 'Em Alone" Bars

Deb, over at Mountain Breaths, made "Can't Leave 'Em Alone Bars" and they looked so delicious that I had to make some for my Memorial Day cookout. 

I started off with a cute baking dish:

I mixed a white cake mix with 2 eggs and 1/3 cup oil and took 2/3 of the batter and pressed it into the greased baking pan:

This is where I changed the recipe a bit.  I melted together 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips, 1/2 cup butterscotch chips, 1 can sweetened condensed mild and 1/2 stick of butter:

The melted mixture was poured over the batter in the baking dish:

The 1/3 remaining cake batter was plopped on top:

Mine took about 30 minutes to bake:

The trick to cutting these easily is the same as if you were cutting brownies - use a plastic knife!!  (did you know that?)

Today I will serve them in little "stars and stripes" baking cups:

Thanks, Deb, for a great recipe!

  1. Are they as delicious as they sound? Yummy it seems. Can't wait to try this recipe. BTW, I'm 2 months into my booth space at a local antique mall and loving it, but oh, it takes more work than I'd anticipated. It is so much fun and I'm doing better than I'd expected. Hope you have a great Memorial day. Vicki in Louisville KY

  2. The dish makes them ever better! Hope you had a great Memorial day.

  3. Oh my these looks so good! Wish I had one with my coffee right now! Hugs and blessings, Cindy
