Ingredient Spotlight-German White Chocolate Chip Bars

The theme today over at Eat at Home’s Ingredient Spotlight is cake mixes.   I often make my own cake mix, but do keep commercial cake mixes on hand, especially flavors that are not easily duplicated at home.  German chocolate is one of those flavors.  It is true that German chocolate cakes can be made at home, but they must be made from scratch.

Recently I experimented with making bar cookies with cake mix.  I used a German chocolate cake mix and added chopped pecans, coconut and white chocolate chips which resulted in a brownie-like cookie with the flavor of a German chocolate cake.  Other flavors of chips can be used if desired.  Since I used only 1/2  cup, this is a chance to use up any small amounts of chips that may be left from other recipes.

These cookies are best kept in a sealed plastic bag to keep them soft.

German White Chocolate Chip Bars
1 German Chocolate Cake Mix (18 oz.)
1/2 c. water
1/4 c. salad oil
1 egg
1/2 c. chopped toasted pecans
1/2 c. flaked coconut
1/2 c. white chocolate chips

Place cake mix in a large mixing bowl.  Combine water, salad oil and egg.  Beat together well.  Pour liquid mixture into the cake mix and mix until well blended.  Stir in pecans, coconut and white chocolate chips, mixing well.  Pour into a foil-lined 9x13-in. baking pan.  Bake at 350 degrees 25 to 30 minutes.  Cool and cut into bars.  Makes about 36 bars.  Store in a zip-top plastic bag to keep soft.
