Have you ever made cake mix bars before? Our family loves them because they are like a brownie that tastes like cake – with a whole lot of mix-ins added in there too. They are absolutely delectable & my “go-to” dessert when I am tight on time.

To make these all you need to do is combine all the ingredients & mix until you get a dense batter. It will actually be more like a cookie dough that you can press into the prepared pan. Then bake for about 20 minutes. The hardest part is waiting for them to cool completely before enjoying. I can tell you that these are the treat that disappears the fastest when I take them to parties. YUM!
Here are some commonly asked questions…
Does it matter what flavor of cake mix I use?
Sort of, but not really. You can make this with really any flavor, but we find that we have the best flavor & pop of color when using a yellow cake mix. You can also use a white or vanilla cake mix for these as well.
What sprinkles do you recommend?
Please don’t use things like sanding sugar (which oddly enough is being advertised as sprinkles on the packaging by some brands. That won’t work – it’s just colored sugar. You also shouldn’t use nonpareils. These are quick to let that color bleed & you won’t get the same effect. The best thing to use are these rainbow jimmies – which are traditional for FUNFETTI.
