Chewy Date Nut Bars

Chewy Date Nut Bars

"You'll need just six ingredients, including a convenient boxed cake mix, to bake up these chewy bars chock-full of walnuts and dates. They are my husband's favorite snack, and he loves to take them to work. I often whip up a batch for bake sales or to share with my co-workers at our local car dealership."

These were nice and chewy, and I love chewy bars, but way too sweet for my taste.
