Cookie Butter Funfetti Triple Chip Bars
Easter is almost here! I love all of the Easter baking and this year I have been embracing cooking with Easter candy. It is life-changing. You know what else is life-changing? Trader Joe's. I am obsessed. I have been begging my husband to take me, it is 5 hours away, we finally went. Guess who else is obsessed? It isn't just me, Ethan is too. We are hooked. We are soon moving half-way across the country, in just a few short months, and he asked me if there was a Trader Joe's there. There is! We are so excited.
Ethan has become mildly obsessed with Biscoff, so I knew he would go completely crazy over Cookie Butter. It was on our list to get. We walk in and they are sampling it, he takes a sample and a jar. While I am perusing the meyer lemons, he is snatching another jar and putting it in the cart. When we get to the peanut-butter aisle, he picks up another jar (#3), I have to draw the line somewhere and tell him we will be back and to put it up. This stuff is seriously addicting. He asked me to make him a bar with this cookie butter in it and I found these bars. They are ridiculously gooey and delicious.
If you can't find any cookie butter, try biscoff spread. If you can't find that, try 1/3 cup of peanut butter + 1 tablespoon of smashed cookies (molasses, ginger, or graham crackers) + 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon.

1 box of Funfetti Cake Mix
1/2 cup of Butter, unsalted
1 Egg, large
1 teaspoon of Vanilla Extract
1/3 cup of Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
1/3 cup of Butterscotch Chips
1/3 cup of White Chocolate Chips
1 can of Sweetened Condensed Milk, 14 oz.
1/3 cup of Cookie Butter, heaping
First, pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees.
Next, prepare a 9x13 in pan with aluminum foil and cooking spray.
Now, in your mixing bowl, combine the cake mix, butter, egg, and vanilla. Mix until combined. Press this mixture in the pan creating the first layer.
Sprinkle the chips all over the dough evenly, making the second layer.
Now, in another mixing bowl, mix the condensed milk and cookie butter. Pour this over the chips.
Bake for 24-26 minutes for really gooey bars or 26-30 minutes for firmer bars. I baked for 25 minutes. Let them sit and cool in the pan completely before serving.
