Chocoholics, these are exclusively for you. Because frankly, there’s nothing else in them besides chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate.
Liiiike, I seriously don’t understand how these are even real, to be honest. They’re composed entirely of chocolate. Different kinds, different shapes, all baked together into one outrageously gooey square of richness. They make Devil’s Food look like child’s play.
While I’m not the biggest chocolate fan (I know, I get flack for this all.the.time) even I found these to be insanely delicious. Kinda like how I didn’t want to like UGG Boots or Taylor Swift’s new song “Shake” but it happened anyway. Don’t tell anyone.
These bad boys have the texture and consistency of a super dense fudge — creamy and soft, but with little gooey pockets of a melty chocolate and sweetened condensed milk mixture that ooze out from beneath layers of chocolate chips. In fact, cut ’em into small enough pieces and you could totally pass them off as fudge for a holiday cookie tray or party… that is, if you don’t eat them all yourself.
And um, don’t forget the milk — it’s an absolute necessity for the thickness, chewiness and RICHNESS that are these crazy-chocolate bars! Now whether that’s regular milk or chocolate is up to you. I promise not to call Chocolates Anonymous on you if you choose the latter 🙂
Chocolate Chocolate Chip Gooey Bars
- 1 box Devil's food cake mix
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup oil
- 1 cup milk chocolate chips
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup dark chocolate chips
- 2 "Giant" Hershey's Milk Chocolate Bars 7 oz each, unwrapped
- 1 "King Size" Hershey's Milk Chocolate Bar 2.5-3 oz each, unwrapped
- 1/2 cup hot fudge sundae sauce
- 1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 13x9" pan with foil, extending the sides of the foil over the edges of the pan. Liberally grease the foil with cooking spray and set aside.
- In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, egg and oil with a spoon until a soft dough forms. Spread the mixture evenly into the prepared pan. Bake for approx. 12 minutes, then remove from the oven but keep the oven on.
- Top the crust layer with the Hershey's bars to cover the entire surface. Immediately top with the assorted chocolate chips evenly. In a separate small bowl, whisk together the hot fudge and sweetened condensed milk; pour the mixture evenly over the bars.
- Return to the oven and bake for 20-22 minutes or until the center is just about set and bubbly. Cool completely in the pan, preferably overnight. Once bars are completely cooled, cut into squares and serve.
Have a fantastical day!!

Ashley @ Kitchen Meets Girl says
I want to eat the crap out of these.
2 giant AND 1 king Hershey bars?? Or was that supposed to say “OR” ?
I just made these, without the Hershey bars (because I dislike Hersheys chocolate & was too cheap to buy Cadbury). I added more chips (about 1/4 – 1/3 C each kind) instead. After baking for 20 minutes the top is heavily bubbling but not yet set. I’ll let it cool & see what happens…
Hi Keri! The top tends to look bubbly and a little gooey still which is what you want! I know it’s tempting to want to pop it back in the oven, but if you do that it’ll over-bake and they won’t be gooey, rich and delish when you cut into them. Let them cool completely (I like letting mine sit overnight) before slicing – I guarantee you’ll have a phenomenal, scrumptious bar! Hope it turns out, and Merry Christmas!
Can’t wait to make these. I think you could add some caramel and have another delicious option!
Oh man, caramel would be a GREAT addition!

I don’t have a devil’s food cake mix. Can I use flour & other ingredients instead?
Michelle, I’m not sure how it’d be without cake mix unfortunately.
Wow! These look like a chocolate masterpiece! They might even satisfy me. Thanks for sharing!
I have them in the oven right now baking for the final few minutes. Now the question is…..Can I wait a few hours for them to chill before I sample?????
How do you think they would do in the freezer. How long could they last in freezer?
Hi Jeannine, I think they’d be fine in the freezer for a couple months if stored properly!
I would add chopped nuts with the chocolate chips and drizzle caramel sauce over the top. I know…messing with perfection but I really like nuts with my chocolate.
