There’s nothing quite like the taste of warm, freshly baked chocolate chip cookies straight out of the oven. But let’s be honest, sometimes we just don’t have the time or energy to go through the whole process of making individual cookies. That’s where lazy chocolate chip cookie bars come in – they’re a quick and easy alternative that still delivers that delicious chocolate chip cookie flavor we all crave.

Lazy chocolate chip cookie bars are essentially just a simplified version of traditional chocolate chip cookies. Instead of forming individual cookies, you simply press the dough into a baking dish and bake it all at once. This saves time and effort, and the end result is still a chewy, gooey, chocolatey treat that’s perfect for satisfying your sweet tooth.

One of the best things about lazy chocolate chip cookie bars is that they’re incredibly versatile. You can add in other ingredients to customize them to your liking – try adding in some chopped nuts, dried fruit, or even candy pieces to mix things up. And because they’re baked in a single pan, they’re perfect for sharing at potlucks, picnics, or any other gathering where you want to bring a tasty treat that’s easy to transport.

So, let’s get down to the details of making these delicious cookie bars. Here’s a simple recipe that you can follow:


1 stick (1/2 cup) of unsalted butter
2 large eggs
1 box of yellow cake mix (15.25 oz or 432 g)
1 bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips (12 oz or 340 g)


Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Grease a 9×13-inch baking pan or line it with parchment paper.

In a medium microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter in the microwave or on the stove. Let it cool slightly.

Add the eggs to the bowl and whisk them until smooth and frothy.

Pour in the cake mix and stir until well combined and no dry pockets remain.

Fold in the chocolate chips until evenly distributed throughout the batter.

Pour the batter into the prepared pan and spread it out evenly with a spatula.

Bake the cake bars in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, depending on the size of the pan, or until the edges are golden brown and the center is set.

Remove the pan from the oven and let the cake bars cool completely on a wire rack.

Cut the cake bars into squares or rectangles and serve. Store any leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days or in the fridge for up to 1 week. Enjoy!
