Food Friday & Friday Letters: M & M Cake Mix Cookie Bars

PhotobucketDear week, I am super busy all the time at work so the days go by fast, which is a good thing. I am glad the weekend is already here. Dear Max, your doing so well with responding to what we ask you. If we tell you to close the door behind your daddy (who never closes doors) you run over and shut it.  You can also ask for a cracker now by saying "ca  GA"  It is adorable.  Dear horrible news stories, I hate that there are so many tragedies going on right now. My thoughts and prayers are with everyone in Boston and West, TX.  Dear bank account, I wish you would grow faster so we can start some renovations. Our list keeps growing with what we want to do to the house (inside and outside). Dear pinterest party, I am excited for a girls night and hopefully to get some things accomplished. If only I had time to plan out my project and supplies. Guess that's what tonight is for.
My sister told me I had to make these cookie bars and she was right. They were SO easy to make (as in less than 5 minutes) and they taste amazing! I found this recipe via Parent Pretty.

1 Box yellow cake mix (I used Duncan Hines)
1 Small box instant vanilla pudding
1/4 Cup water
3/4 Cup vegetable oil
2 Eggs
1 Cup chocolate chips. I used 1 cup full size m & m's. Mini ones would work too.

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. 
Combine cake mix, pudding mix, water, vegetable oil, eggs, and M&M's in large bowl.
Pour the batter (it'll be thick) into a greased 10x13 baking dish sprayed with nonstick spray.
Bake your bars for 20-30 mins (I think I did 25). It may look sort of raw in the middle but if the edges are just golden and starting to get crispy, it's probably done. 

I made these for Davids birthday and they were gone very quickly!
I'm going to make them for my pinterest party since that's where we originally found them! Thanks to my sister for sharing.
