Recipe: Gooey Cake Bars

This Labor Day weekend and I was appointed to be in charge of bringing something sweet to our family barbecue. I wanted to bring something that was both devilishly delicious and full of colorful fun. These little treats were a massive hit with the family and super easy to make. My family could not believe how tasty and sweet each colorful square was.


  1. 1x Box Yellow Cake Mix
  2. 1x Unsalted Stick of Butter (1/2 cup butter soft)

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Line a 9×9” pan with foil and spray with non-stick spray.
  3. Stir cake mix, butter, and egg until a thick dough forms. I did this by hand.
  4. Add 1/3 – 2/3 cup sprinkles and stir until well distributed.
  5. Press 1/2 of this mixture into the bottom of the pan.
  6. Layer the mixture with any desired amount of white chocolate or butterscotch chips and the another  1/3 cup sprinkles.
  7. Pour condensed milk over the top. (I used just under 1/2 a can)
  8. Break remaining dough into small pieces and place evenly over the top of the bars. Press and flatten to form a complete layer.
  9. Bake 30 minutes or until top begins to brown.
  10. Cool before slicing or the delicious gooeyness will stick to your knife!
