Sprinkle Gooey Cake Bars

So we are 1 week back in to school and I gotta tell you it feels pretty good.  I mean Yea, the schedules are just getting adjusted and being put in and, Yea, the homework and the projects haven’t really started, but routine has and that my friends… is pretty good.  I think after summer and not having a routine the days just started to roll into one and we didn’t know Monday from a Friday.

Now, don’t get me wrong I’m sure in the next few weeks I probably will be singing a different tune– like running around like a mad woman– but as of now things are good.

The summer was pretty great though… the kids traveled all over from Atlanta to Miami and of course let’s not forget our amazing Disney Cruise we went one, which I still need to share those photos, which I promise I will one of these days– will explain the loopiness later on. 🙂

Sprinkle Gooey Cake Bars

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Serving Size: 12 cake bars

Sprinkle Gooey Cake Bars

Gooey cake bars topped with condensed milk, sprinkles, and white chocolate... what could be better?

Ingredients

  • 1 box Yellow Cake Mix or Funfetti Cake Mix, (up to you)
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) Butter, softened
  • 1 Large Egg
  • 2/3 cup Sprinkles, divided
  • 1/2 cup (14 ounce can) Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 1 cup White Chocolate Chips

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9x9” pan with foil and spray liberally with cooking spray.
  2. Add cake mix, butter, and egg to the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Mix until a thick dough forms. Add 1/3 cup sprinkles and stir until incorporated.
  3. Press about 2/3 of the dough into the bottom of the prepared pan. Sprinkle with white chocolate chips and remaining 1/3 cup sprinkles. Pour sweetened condensed milk over the top. Separate remaining dough into small balls and evenly space over the top of the bars. Press down to flatten.
  4. Bake bars for about 20-30 minutes, make sure they are still soft inside though. Cool completely before slicing, otherwise the mixture will be too gooey to cut.
