Double Chocolate Fantasy Bars? Yes, Please!

Someone at work brought these in and I had to have the recipe. Turns out, it's one of those super easy recipes that uses a cake mix as a base and it only takes a couple minutes to whip up. I think I will keep these ingredients on hand!

Double Chocolate Fantasy Bars
1 pkg of chocolate cake mix
1/4 c vegetable oil
1 egg
1 c chopped nuts (walnuts)
1 (14 oz) can of sweetened condensed milk
6 oz (half a bag) semisweet chocolate chips
1 tsp vanilla
dash of salt

Preheat oven at 350 degrees F. In large mixing bowl, combine cake mix, oil and egg.
Beat on medium speed until crumbly.  Stir in nuts.

Reserving 1 1/2 cups of the crumb mixture, press the remainder on bottom of
13 x 9 inch greased baking pan.

In a small saucepan combine sweetened condensed milk, chocolate chips and salt.  Over medium heat stir until chips have melted.  Add vanilla and pour evenly over prepared crust.

Sprinkle remaining crumb mixture evenly on top.  Bake 25-30 min or until bubbly.
Cool thoroughly.  Cut into bars, store loosely covered at room temp.  Makes 36.

It makes this delicious fudgy layer in the middle. You should try these!


  1. Almost my grandmothers caramel brownies ... just add a pkg of caramel in place of the chips, melt. For death by chocolate, you drop choc chips on the batter before you pour on the melted mix and top with remaining brownie batter. They are to die for.

  2. These look so good. I am chocolate fiend and would probably add chocolate chips! Thanks for the post and happy holidays!

  3. Good stuff to know, Mollie! =0)
