This one is well named- Can't Leave Alone Bars- Taste of Home Tuesday

I've really worked to get my cake mix collection down to reasonable levels, but now I've found this recipe for Can't Leave Alone Bars.    It goes together so quickly, is easily customized with different flavors of cake mix or types of chips.       For this pan, I used white cake mix (15.25oz) and semisweet chips.   I wanted thicker bars, so I used a 9x9 pan, and they baked in about 25 minutes.   We all loved them, and I'll be making them again soon (chocolate cake mix and sea salt caramel chips).    Thanks to Kimberly B for sharing her recipe!

  1. Sounds as though the name is appropriate. They wouldn't last long here either.

    1. I'm thinking Key Lime Cake mix and white chocolate chips!

  2. Those look amazing! And they appear to be aptly named!

    1. They sure were! a 13x9 pan MIGHT last a little longer, but I doubt it :)

  3. That is a great name & they sound tasty!

    1. And totally justifies me buying more cake mixes this week ;)

  4. Hey Jolene,

    I remember this one! Think Depo posted it. Made it MANY times and it's delicious.


    1. Hi Linda! I found it in one of my Quick Cooking Annuals :) Good to see you stop by!
