Gooey Funfetti Bars
So why did we need another sprinkle dessert? In truth, we didn’t but now that we have them, aren’t you kinda glad? These gooey funfetti bars likely fall in the blondie category. They’re gooey like an underbaked brownie, and feature a flaky delicate top and buttery insides. The bars are loaded with sprinkles and flavored with clear vanilla extract which offers cake mix flavor. I prefer these bars how I prefer my brownies: slightly underdone. But if you’d prefer, you can bake them a few minutes longer for a more cakey treat.
To make these gooey funfetti bars, start by stirring together melted butter, brown sugar, and sugar. Next comes two eggs and clear vanilla extract. Finally, the flour, leavening, and salt add in along with a whole bunch of rainbow sprinkles. The batter spreads into a square baking pan before a quick bake in the oven. Voila- gooey funfetti bars! The end result is a chewy, melt-in-your-mouth, super-rich treat that all sprinkle lovers will adore.
Give one (or ten!) of these treats a try this weekend. Happy baking to y’all!Print

- Prep Time: 5

- Yield: 16-24, Depending on Size of Bars
- Category: Dessert
- 1 cup unsalted butter, melted
- 1 ¼ cup light brown sugar, packed
- ½ cup sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 2 teaspoons clear vanilla extract
- 2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
- ½ teaspoon baking powder
- 1 1/4 teaspoons salt
- ¾ cups rainbow sprinkles
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line an 8” square metal pan with aluminum foil. Spray lightly with baking spray and set aside.
- In a large bowl, stir together the butter, brown sugar, and sugar. Add the eggs and extract, stirring well to combine. Toss in the flour, baking powder, and salt, stirring until combined. Fold in the sprinkles.
- Spread the batter into the prepared pan. Bake in the preheated oven for about 23-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out with a few moist clumps. Allow to cool (or place in the fridge) until set completely and then slice. These bars are rich, so I recommend small squares. 😊
