It turns out, the name for these bars really is quite fitting. They are so gooey and chocolatey, I’m really not surprised. I made these when I lived back home and they were gone within a matter of days. Even though I used my lower fat applesauce trick, they were still deliciously irresistible.
1 - 18.25-oz. box white cake mix
1 - 4-oz. container applesauce
1 - 14-oz. can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup butter, cubed
Preheat oven to 350°. In a medium bowl, combine the cake mix, eggs and applesauce. With floured hands, press two-thirds of the batter into a greased 13-by-9-inch baking pan. Set rest of batter aside. Meanwhile, in a microwave-safe bowl, combine the sweetened condensed milk, chocolate chips and butter. Microwave on high for 45 seconds; stir. Microwave an additional 60-75 seconds until chips and butter are completely melted. Stir until smooth. Pour over crust. Drop teaspoonfuls of remaining cake mixture over top. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool before cutting.
