Butter Bars And a Giveaway!

Sharing is caring!

Are you ready for the most decadent recipe I’ve ever posted? I’m guessing you are if you are still reading after a title like “Butter Bars.” The recipe title doesn’t lie. These are packed with the good stuff and full of rich flavor. They make an appearance once every year or so for special occasions and disappear. Fast.

Want to know the best news? The version I share today is a doctored cake mix! Which means little work and delicious results! This cake is full of ooey gooey flavor. You’ll think it’s not done baking, but I promise it is. Take it out after the recommended bake time.
