Thankfully Spring-y weather has retured to Pittsburgh and this post is coming to you from outside a cafe with a cup of pineapple juice and sunshine =]. The school year is winding down with one week of classes left to go, and with my fashion show coming up (tomorrow!!) I have been super busy! But never, ever to busy to bake. I made these white chocolate + chocolate chocolate cranberry bars last week because I'm always looking to try something new! They came out delicious and were SUPER EASY because the recipe called for boxed cake mix and just a few other ingredients! I got the original recipe from Betty Crocker and modified it a bit in my usual way. These yummy bars are great as an on-the-go snack or you can eat them on the couch with friends and a movie like I did.
What you'll need:
1 box Betty Crocker® SuperMoist® white cake mix
1/3 cup butter or margarine, melted
2 Tbsp water
1 1/2 cups dried cranberries
1 cup white vanilla baking chips (6 oz)
1/3 cup chocolate chips, melted
Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan). Grease bottom and lightly flour 13x9-inch pan, or spray with baking spray and flour.
In large bowl, mix cake mix, butter, water and eggs with spoon until dough forms (some dry mix will remain). Stir in cranberries and baking chips. Spread evenly in pan.
Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely, about 1 hour.
Melt the chocolate by putting chips in a mug or bowl and placing inside a saucepan filled with water (like pictured below). Heat to a boil, stirring chips until melted.
Drizzle over finished bars. Cut bars 6x4.
