How to Make Easy Loaded Cookie Bars


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9X13 glass pan with PAM or grease lightly with shortening.
  2. In a large bowl combine cake mix, eggs and melted butter. Stir just to combine.
  3. Add chips, nuts and coconut, mix just to combine- don't over mix.
  4. Place batter in pan and push into place, I find it easier using my hands. Even the dough out in the pan.
  5. Bake 20-23 minutes until golden brown, do not undercook! Cool completely, cut into squares to serve.
