Triple Chip Nut Surprise Bars

I felt like making something yesterday. I had no flour (well, other than whole wheat pastry flour), and wanted to make something I could take to school and share. So with some lookse change I went to the store and spent a little over a dollar on a box of cake mix and experimented. And the results were edible, and I got quite a few yums. Only two complaint, one person said that it was too dry (theirs wasn't wrapped well). And another that the pretzels were stale. But that's because they were.

    1 box white cake mix
    2 eggs
    1/4 cup oil
    2 tablespoons water

    2 tablespoons white chocolate chips
    2 tablespoons butterscotch chips
    1/4 cup chocolate chips
    1/4 cup raisins
    2 tablespoons chopped walnuts
    2 tablespoons peanut halves

    25 mini pretzels

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 13x9 pan.

In a medium-large bowl, beat cake mix with oil, eggs, and water for 30 seconds or until too thick for mixer. The dough will appear elastic, sort of like pizza dough. Fold together with spatula until there are no chunks of the mix left.

Combine all remaining ingredients except pretzels and fold into the batter as evenly as possible.

Pour batter into prepared pan and press down with spatula or hands.Press pretzels into dough in 5 rows of five.

Bake for 20-22 minutes, covering top with foil halfway through, or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
