Recipe Monday: Cake Batter Bar Blondies + Babies

We moved south and in turn got hit with an ice storm that closed down the entire city. Schools are still closed TODAY! An entire week later!

So, naturally in our cabin fevered apartment, we decided sweets were the only way to cope. We made these delicious cake batter blondies and my son and husband couldn't get enough!  It was the perfect pick me up for our cold weather blues. In case mother nature decides to play another cruel joke on all of us and dumps more ice and snow, here is the recipe so you can be prepared!


Bar Ingredients:
  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 1/4 cup vegetable or canola oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/3 -1/2 cup milk (less is better)
  • 1/2 cup sprinkles
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
Icing Ingredients (they don't need icing but we wanted the extra frill ... and we had a lot of time on our hands!):
  • 1/2 stick salted butter (melted)
  • 1 cup powered sugar
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • milk (to help smooth if needed)
Mix together cake mix, oil, egg, and milk. Add milk slowly, you want cake batter to be as dense as possible (less milk is better).

Note: don't eat batter with raw eggs ... it'll make you sick. Oh wait, we don't even follow our own rule!

Once your batter is good and mixed, add in you chocolate chips and sprinkles. Note, don't use sprinkles that have black or brown in the mix ... they won't be pretty at the end result. We used Valentine's sprinkles because we had them leftover from our deliciously dipped rice krispy pops.
Pour into 9x13/9x11 prepared baking pan, sprinkle a few more sprinkles on top, and bake for 25 minutes until edges are just turning brown.
When those are getting close, throw your frosting together. Melt that butter, baby.
Add in your powdered sugar and vanilla extract.
Mix milk as needed, until it's smooth and creamy.
When those yummies come out of the over, spread some frosting over the top and add a few more sprinkles - then let cool for atleast 30 minutes before cutting. .
In other non-recipe news today I have not one, not two, but THREE very exciting birthdays to share! One of my very nearest and dearest friends, since I have been a tiny tiny tot (talking kindergarten here folks) brought two precious baby boys into the world! Everyone meet Beckett and Camden, the most adorable twin boys you ever did see!
And most certainly you all know about MaKenzie, my favorite cousin and sister from another mother. She brought to the world her fourth girl, Salem Christian. 
My heart is so so full. Welcome to the world precious littles. You are so loved!
