can I make cookie bars in advance?

Since these bars come together so quickly, they are great to make for kids’ school lunches and add them throughout the week. or make them a day in advance for a party you’ll be hosting.

They will stay fresh for up to 3 days.

how to store cookie bars-

These bars store well in an airtight container at room temperature, refrigerate covered if not used immediately.

Because of the cream cheese in the cookies, I would not recommend freezing the bars.

Ingredients

  • 1 box classic yellow cake mix
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 -8 oz cream cheese, room temp
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chip morsels

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 355°F.
  • Cover baking pan with parchment paper and spray with baking spray.
  • Mix the cake mix, oil and egg in a bowl.
  • Set aside approximately 3/4 cup of the mixture. No need to stuff the mixture into the measuring cups, it will become hard to work with.
  • Take the rest of the mixture and spread it evenly in the pan.
  • Take the cream cheese and beat it about a minute. There should be no lumps. (If cream cheese is not at room temp it will be hard to work with.) If you use a microwave, you can soften it there as well. We don’t use our microwave so I always take out the cream cheese in advance to give it time to soften.
  • Add the chocolate chip morsels to the cream cheese and mix with a spatula or spoon.
  • Spread the cream cheese/morsels over the cake mixture.
  • Take the remaining cake and in small pieces put it over the cream cheese/morsels.
  • Bake 25-30 minutes or until golden in color.
  • These can be enjoyed warm or once they have completely cooled.
