Cake Mix Bars
Notes from Folks...

Hello Dan and Kathy,

I was wondering if you have a recipe for cake mix bars that is made with a cake mix, and turned in to bars. Where I work, I need to have bars every day, but I need the recipe for a 5-pound box of a cake mix. Can you help me out? Or do you have a cake mix cookbook just with cake mix and bars? I love this website and DVO. Your Turtle Cake is awesome!
