Easy Cake Mix Cookie Bars

We've never met a thicker, gooier, chocolatier cake bar. Ever.

1 box cake mix 
1 small box Jello instant pudding 
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup canola oil*
2 eggs 
1/2 cup cookies n'cream and chocolate chunks 
1/2 cup M&M's

*You can subsitute the canola oil for 1/2 cup applesauce


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Spray a 9x13 inch baking pan with cooking spray. Set aside.

In a large bowl, mix together the cake mix, pudding, water, applesauce (if using), oil and eggs or Egg Beaters. Fold in your add-ins. Pour batter into prepared pan, spread evenly (my batter was pretty thick). Bake for approximately 20 minutes or until done around edges, but slightly soft in middle (if you use different ingredients, they may need to cook a little longer). Let cool.

Top with whipped topping and sprinkles if desired!
