I am calling these brownies, because. . . 1. That is what they were called on this site and 2. The word "brownies" truly describes the texture of these bars. If I was to call them a cake bar, you would think of them as cake, but oh no . . . these are dense and chewy like a brownie or a chewy cookie bar and they are so dang good, dangerously good to be precise. The whole pan was gone in one day. Oops :)
My cute little 5 year old niece kept saying, "These are soooooo GOOD!"
Since these are made with a cake mix, you can make so many different flavors, but of course I chose Strawberry for Valentine's Day. I will be making these all year long and YOU need to make these ASAP.

(Printable Recipe) or (Printable with Picture)
1 box strawberry cake mix
2 large eggs
1/3 c. vegetable or canola oil
1/2 - 3/4 c. white chocolate chips
1 c. powdered sugar
1-2 Tbl. milk (I used almond milk)
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract (I used clear vanilla)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9x13-inch baking pan with parchment paper, leaving a slight overhang for easy removal and spray with cooking spray; set aside. Combine dry cake mix, eggs and oil and stir together until smooth and well combined. Stir in white chocolate chips. Spread batter evenly into prepared baking dish. Bake for 15 minutes or until a toothpick comes out with only a few crumbs. Do not overbake. Cool in pan 10 minutes, remove and top with glaze. Cool completely, cut into bars and serve.
To make the Glaze: Combine powdered sugar, 1 Tablespoon of milk and vanilla and stir together until smooth. If mixture is too thick, add a little more milk until it reaches a glaze consistency.
