Magic Cake Bars

I was looking for a chocolate-y dessert that I wasn't going to have to spend a lot of time preparing, or money on ingredients. These Magic Cake Bars from Lynn's Kitchen Adventures really fit the bill.  These bars are a version of the classic seven layer bar, only they don't quite have seven layers.  Unless butter counts as a layer?  I like me some butter, so let's go with that.

What makes this recipe different from the other seven layer bars out there, is the base is made from chocolate cake mix.  Devils food chocolate cake mix.  Oh yeah.  It's what makes these bars evil.  Really really evil.  Don't eat too many or you'll go into a coma evil.  Yeah.  Yummy yummy evil.
I made the choice to line the pan with foil before I sprayed it with cooking spray.  I was afraid that the condensed milk would make the bars difficult to cut in the pan.  The foil made for easy clean up too.
This bar is yours.  Go ahead and drink it with a glass of milk because it is so rich. Just think of the bars as a vehicle for your increased dairy consumption.  Don't we all need more calcium in our diets anyway?

Magic Cake Bars from Lynn's Kitchen Adventures
1 package of devils food cake mix
1/2 cup butter (cut into small chunks)
1 cup butterscotch chips
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup coconut
1 cup chopped pecans (or walnuts)
1 can (14 ounce) sweetened condensed milk

Place cake mix in a bowl and cut in butter until the mixture is crumbly. Press into a 15×10" jelly roll type pan. Sprinkle chips, coconut, and nuts on top. Pour sweetened condensed milk evenly on top. Bake at 350 for 23-25 minutes. Cool for at least 30 minutes and cut into bars.
