Cake Batter Cookie Bars


Who doesn’t love funfetti?! You can use it to celebrate your birthday or any day! I’ve had a boxed mix sitting around in my cupboard, but wasn’t in the mood for making an entire cake. Instead, I used it to make these cookie bars. They were delicious! It had the funfetti flavor, but the consistency of a buttery, chewy cookie. And how can you resist this batter? Let’s just say not all of it ended up in the pan…



  • 1 1/4 cup funfetti cake mix
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 3/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar

How to:

  • Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly grease 9×9 inch pan.
  • Cream together butter, sugars, egg, egg yolk and vanilla. Set aside.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, combine cake mix, flour and baking soda. Gradually add to butter mixture and stir until combined.
  • Spread batter evenly into prepared pan.
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes until lightly browned.
  • Let cool in pan for 5 minutes, then transfer to wire rack. Cool completely before cutting.
  • Enjoy!
