I found these yummy bars-o-goodness over at girlmeetslife . . . and wow. My husband LOVES anything that uses a “Funfetti” cake mix and I knew as soon as I saw these that they would quickly become his favorite . . . I was totally right. This is kind of a like a dense cake, which makes it easy to cut up and serve as bars. They are super easy to throw together and taste amazing.
- 1 box yellow (or Funfetti!) cake mix
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 1 egg
- 1/3 – 1/2 cup milk
- 1/4 cup rainbow sprinkles (if you use a yellow cake mix, add these in)
- 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
- Sprinkles for the top
- Frosting (see recipe below)
Directions: Combine the cake mix, oil, and egg in a large bowl. Add the milk slowly – you want the batter to remain as dense as possible. Then mix in the rainbow sprinkles and white chocolate chips. Spray pan (either 8×11″ or 9×9″ pan) with non-stick cooking spray. Dump batter in pan and spread to the edges. Bake for 25-30 minutes at 350 degrees. (They will be a little soft/gooey in the middle- just let them sit for about 20-30 minutes and they will set up. But I guarantee that you will not be able to wait that long.) Frost when cooled (optional . . . these taste amazing without frosting, but I am a serious frosting lover, so I added just a little bit).
1/4 cup margarine or butter, softened
2-3 Tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups powdered sugar (more or less depending on how thick/runny you like it)
3-4 drops red food coloring to get desired pink color (optional)
Combine all ingredients until well-blended. Spread on top of blondies.
