I have a new obsession...recipes that begin with a box of cake mix...I totally blame this on the fact that nearly every grocery store ran cake mixes buy-1-get-1-free during the holidays...I loaded up and I have yet to make a cake...It's amazing all the things you can make with them...My obsession with cake mix recipes began when I made those Chocolate Caramel Rolo cookies...then those Chocolate Andes Mint Cookies...and now these delicious bars full of white chocolate chips and dried cranberries...and I don't think this obsession will end anytime soon.
White Chocolate Cranberry Bars
1- 18.25 oz package white cake mix (I used Duncan Hines)
1/2 cup butter, melted (1 stick)
2 tbs milk
1 1/2 cup dried cranberries
1 cup white chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a 13 x 9 inch baking sheet with foil and spray with non-stick spray; set aside. In a large bowl mix together the cake mix, melted butter, eggs, and milk with a wooden spoon. Stir in the cranberries and white chocolate chips. Spread the batter evenly in the prepared pan. (The batter is thick and can be difficult to spread, using a rubber spatula sprayed with non-stick spray makes the job so much easier.) Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until the edges are golden and a tester inserted in the center comes out clean. Transfer to a wire rack until cooled completely and cut into bars.
The other day I received a package from my blogger friend Lyndsey. All throughout the holiday season Lyndsey kept posting pictures of Christmas ornaments she was making from sea shells...fitting since Lyndsey lives in Florida. Lyndsey was kind enough to send me a few of her creations...I love them...they are so pretty...and they will go so great on our very eclectic Christmas tree next year. Thank you so much Lyndsey!
Now if you have never visited Lyndsey's blog, The Tiny Skillet...head on over there now! Lyndsey has tons of great recipes...I've tried quite a few...and she posts the most beautiful pictures of the Sarasota sunsets...that will make you want to plan a beach vacation.
