Here's one that we like- it uses a brownie mix

S'mores bars

8 to 10 whole graham crackers(about 5 inches by 2 1/2 inches)
1 package fudge brownie mix (13 x 9 inch pan size)
2 cups miniature marshmallows
1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
2/3 cup chopped peanuts

Arrange graham crackers in a single layer in a greased 13 x 9 baking pan. Prepare brownie batter according to package directions. Spread over crackers. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Sprinkle with marshmallows, chocolate chips and peanuts. Bake 5 minutes longer or until marshmallows are slightly puffed and golden brown. Cool on a wire rack before cutting. Yield:2 dozen

You can make regular cookies from any box of cake mix. Just add one egg and 1/4 cup oil, mix into dry mix (it will be thick) and drop on a cookie sheet and cook at 350 for about ten minutes. they are yummy and easy! You can get creative and add chips, or M&M's or anything to the mix.

One more:


1 Strawberry cake mix
1 1/2 Tablespoons Milk
2 eggs 1
1 cup powdered sugar
1/3 cup oil

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix together cake mix, eggs & oil until stiff. Spread the dough evenly in a lightly greased 13 x 9 inch pan. Bake 14-16 minutes.

Mix the milk & powdered sugar. Drizzle the glaze over the hot squares. Serve warm, or at room temperature.

Should be great with a lemon, orange or chocolate cake mix too!
