  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 2 eggs
  • Filling

  • 2 3.4 ounce packages instant vanilla pudding
  • 2 1/4 cup half & half, or whole milk
  • Ganache

  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 3 tablespoons light corn syrup (may sub honey)
  • Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease an 8×8 inch baking pan.
  • Mix together butter, cake mix, and eggs. Press batter into prepared pan. Bake for 15-20 minutes. Allow to cool on a cooling rack.
  • While base layer is baking, prepare the filling. In a medium bowl mix together the vanilla pudding mixes and half & half for 2-3 minutes until thick. Cover with plastic wrap and transfer to fridge to chill while base layer is baking and cooling.
  • When base is completely cooled, spread filling over base layer. Transfer back to the fridge while you prepare the ganache.
  • In a microwave safe bowl combine chocolate chips, heavy cream, and corn syrup. Microwave on half power for 2 minutes. Stir, then return to microwave for 20 seconds at a time (at half power still) stirring after each, until mixture is completely melted and smooth. Allow to cool.
  • Remove the bars from the fridge, cut into squares. Drizzle ganache over squares and serve, or chill until ready to serve.
