Easy Chocolate Bar Cookie Recipe


In a hurry, but craving chocolate? These easy Triple Chocolate Cherry Pecan Bars can be made in about 30 minutes and are sure to please even the most discriminating chocolate aficionado. Starting with a cake mix eliminates the need to measure a lot of ingredients, but the addition of real butter insures a homemade taste. The decadent chocolate filling is reminiscent of a creamy truffle; no one will guess that these are quick and easy.

These bars can be made up to a week ahead, and can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature. They are perfect for taking on a picnic, or can be served at a backyard cookout with homemade ice cream. They’re not just for summer, though; these bars are great year round and are good enough that they can even be an addition to a holiday cookie tray.
