These Funfetti Cake Batter Cookie Bars Are Better Than Birthday Cake
Oh wow these sound SO good!
Everyone loves a classic birthday cake, but you’ll never settle for plain Jane cake again once you try these Funfetti cake batter cookie bars from Together As Family. These tasty treats are part sugar cookie, part bar and part cake, making for one unforgettable dessert that will have you wishing your birthday was every day.
They take only five simple ingredients to put together. The blogger recommends using almond extract in lieu of vanilla for the frosting to tone down the sweetness a bit, but feel free to use vanilla if you have a serious sweet tooth or just prefer the flavor.
Top the frosting with more sprinkles for a super-festive treat that’s ideal not just for birthdays, but for any time you feel like celebrating a bit. You can even switch up which sprinkles you use in order to color coordinate with various holidays. Just make sure to let the bars cool completely before frosting them so that the frosting does not melt.
If you almost love the taste of cake batter straight out of the bowl better than the baked caked itself, you’ll love these bars — they taste exactly like yummy batter.
Another way to enjoy cake batter flavor is with these cake batter popsicles. They’re perfect for the warm summer months, and while you don’t normally associate cake batter with healthy foods, these frozen treats are low in sugar if you opt to use sugar-free instant pudding. What could be better than low-calorie, frozen cake on a stick?
Another version of these cake batter popsicles comes courtesy of The Simple Sweet Life. These homemade frozen delights incorporate low-fat vanilla yogurt as well as a drizzle of melted pink candy for a dessert that’s as pretty as it is tasty.
Yum! Do you have a favorite cake batter dessert?
