Fudge Cake Bars

Here is a simple, fast and yummy dessert. I made a batch, cut it into squares and froze them. My kids have been taking them in their school lunches this week and they love them. The cafeteria worker came to my son from across the room to ask him what it was and how his mom made them. I am sure he offered her no help whatsoever as far as how to make them. He just enjoys eating them. I guess they looked that yummy to her, I should send the recipe with him to school.

Fudge-y cake bars

1 yellow cake mix
2 eggs
1/3 cup oil
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup chocolate chips, I used semi-sweet

Combine cake mix, eggs and oil and press 2/3 of it into a 9x13 pan. In a microwave safe bowl, combine milk and chocolate chips. Microwave to melt, stopping every 30 seconds to stir. Don't microwave too long, stir well and allow the melted chocolate to melt the chunks still left after microwaving two times at 30 seconds each. Pour chocolate mixture over crust. Sprinkle remaining crust over chocolate. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until they start to turn golden. These freeze great!

Although it is not necessary, I easily convinced myself to accompany these bars with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
