Funfetti Gooey Bars

Pin It

These Funfetti Gooey Bars are the best gooey bars ever! Made with a cake mix and a few simple ingredients, they are gooey to the max!

Funfetti Gooey Bars by | These are the best gooey bars I've ever had!

I don’t make the same thing twice very often. Almost never, in fact. I mean, when you’re surrounded by sugar all day every day, most of it new recipes that you can post, the last thing you need (or want) is to make another batch of cookies. Some of my favorite repeats that I’ve posted on this blog (and boy, do I need to update some of these photos!) are:

Crumb Apple Pie

Zucchini Brownies

Peanut Butter Cookies (in some variation)

Banana Bread (in some variation)

Cinnamon Rolls (again, I never make the same version twice…)

Coffee Cake (the base is my mom’s recipe)

Fudgy Brownies (often with a new frosting flavor)

So see…even if I do make something twice…it’s often with a new variation. A new frosting flavor, or a new filling.

I have issues, and my daughter often asks for “plain cinnamon rolls” or “just a chocolate chip cookie” and my eyes cross.

I have one more recipe to add to this list: Funfetti Gooey Bars.

I made them twice. In ONE WEEK. That’s how good they were.

Funfetti Gooey Bars by | These are the best gooey bars I've ever had!

I made the first version and never even photographed them. They came out of the oven and we were super busy that afternoon, and by the next day the pan looked like a fork had attacked it.


So I remade them again. Because I had to share them with you.

These are my favorite gooey (cake) bars ever. They’re actually the first ones I made, before the Healthier Chocolate Gooey Cake Bars. But my friend Heather at Heather’s French Press made some Cake Batter Gooey Bars the same week I made mine. Hers were so fabulous, I had to wait to post a little while. Then I forgot.

Story of my life.

These bars start with a yellow cake mix. You mix that with an egg and some butter. The batter is layered with white chocolate chips, sprinkles, and half a can of sweetened condensed milk. If you use a whole can they are too gooey…hence the fork in the first batch.

These are funfetti to the extreme. Cake batter gooeyness. I need to make them again. YOU need to make them.

I’ve also made a lemon version. I didn’t photograph them. I guess those are going on the remake list too!

Funfetti Gooey Cake Bars

Yield: 9-12 bars

These Funfetti Gooey Bars are the best gooey bars ever! Made with a cake mix and a few simple ingredients, they are gooey to the max!


  • 1 yellow cake mix
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) butter, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 2/3 cup sprinkles, divided
  • 1/2 cup (from a 14 ounce can) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9x9” pan with foil and spray liberally with cooking spray.
  2. Add cake mix, butter, and egg to the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Mix until a thick dough forms. Add 1/3 cup sprinkles and stir until incorporated.
  3. Press about 2/3 of the dough into the bottom of the prepared pan. Sprinkle with white chocolate chips and remaining 1/3 cup sprinkles. Pour sweetened condensed milk over the top. Separate remaining dough into small balls and evenly space over the top of the bars. Press down to flatten.
  4. Bake bars for about 30 minutes, or until they just begin to brown. Cool completely before slicing, otherwise the mixture will be too gooey to cut. Optional: eat straight from pan with a fork.

        Hi, I made these and they were fantastic! The kids loved them and so did I…but but you happen to have nutritional information on them? like calorie count?

        • Dorothy Kern replied on November 26th, 2014 at 12:04 pm

          I’m glad you liked them! I’m sorry, I don’t have the count…and I kind of don’t want to know! :)

    Bars are my favorite thing to make, and these look scrumptiously fun! I hear you about the “plain” request, get that from my family too — can’t believe that!!!


    • Dorothy Kern replied on July 26th, 2013 at 11:40 am

      It boggles my mind. Why would you want plain when you can have bars with 1,232 kinds of candy in them??

    oh my. with the cake batter ice cream i made last week for national ice cream day I have fallen in love with funfetti and cake batter food. These bars look so amazing. And I can’t even imagine how good they are with sweetened condensed milk in them!


  12. Tieghan posted on July 25, 2013 at 7:57 pm (#)

    So fun! I love using sweetened condensed milk to make gooey bars. I actually just made 2 bars recipes using it. So good! These sound and look incredible!

    I have some Funfetti blondies on my site I made over Xmas and I loved those things. Just this week Funfetti cookies – and the minute I saw these on the BHG board, repinned! They look soooo good! Sweet cond milk & cake mix were my blog for like most of 2010 :) I will always love it :)

    Gooey is ALWAYS the best! I can’t imagine having brownies or bars any other way. Love the way the sprinkles turned out — they’re so bright and cute! (And nothing wrong with a fork attack… I do it all the time! ;) )

  38. Lydia posted on July 28, 2013 at 3:33 pm (#)

    I made these last night. They are yummy but don’t look anything like they should. It hasn’t risen quite the same (they sunk when they came out of the oven) and the colours of the sprinkles seem to have melded and looks a little messy.
    Any idea what I have done wrong?


    • Dorothy Kern replied on July 29th, 2013 at 7:31 am

      I’m sorry! The sinking…I’m not sure about. We’re in a pretty dry area, so are you somewhere more humid? Could be something with the cake mix too. With the sprinkles, I always use jimmies (the long thin kind) because they don’t melt like some other kinds do (like nonpareils and such). I use the tub you find at Walmart for the most part. Possibly all sprinkles aren’t created equal in that way? I hope they tasted good anyway! In a pinch you can cover them with fresh sprinkles…no one will notice the defaults!


      • Lydia replied on July 29th, 2013 at 8:31 pm

        I am in Brisbane, Australia so could be that :) It was the hit at both work and school (as I did 2 batches). Was soooo yum :) I guess that means I’ll just have to make it again to try and get it right ;)

        • Dorothy Kern replied on July 30th, 2013 at 7:35 am

          Thanks Lydia!!

    These are so cute and they do look pretty amazingly gooey. I’d love to try them. I, also, hardly ever make the same thing twice. There are just too many amazing recipes to try. This one is going on my ridiculously long list.

        • Ashley replied on August 11th, 2013 at 3:18 pm

          Well, I ended up turning the heat up about 15-20 degrees and I added a tablespoon of water. They turned out pretty good, the edges were a little drier than the rest but overall. pretty good!

    • Dorothy Kern replied on August 18th, 2013 at 3:18 pm

      I’ve never doubled it, but you probably could! Theoretically, you could make it with one cake mix and use a 9×13″ pan, but they’d be thinner. Let me know what you end up doing and how they turn out!

      I need to get in the habit of using parchment to line my pans. I’m just so used to foil, but I bet the parchment would be even better. I usually spray the heck out of my foil with Pam so that they don’t stick! And I just bought a huge two-pack of parchment at Costco. Thanks for the tip!

    Just curious …. are you supposed to make the cake mix like how it says on the box then and it in with the rest of the ingredients? I’m making theese as we speak and I just added the cake mix straight from the box.


    • Dorothy Kern replied on April 27th, 2014 at 7:36 am

      You just use the powder from the cake mix and my ingredients! If you’re using a hand mixer, it will take a long time to incorporate everything, so use a stand mixer if you have one. The dough will be like very thick cookie dough!

Much of my family has celiac disease and this was so simple to adjust to be gluten free! Thank you so much! They just came out of the oven and I cannot wait to try them! Have you ever put them in the freezer to cool quicker? I’m not sure I can wait until Sunday to eat these!

      I’m so glad they work gluten free! That’s one of the thing I love about mixes! Freezer, go for it. I have used it for blast cooling before, not with these, but with other things. :)

    I made these for my moms birthday a few weeks ago and I’m repeating them today for Mother’s Day! We LOVE them and now that I know the base recipe, there’s seriously SO many options! I have an 8×8 pan and I cooked them in that last time and they still turned out great! Just a little fatter :)


    • Dorothy Kern replied on May 11th, 2014 at 4:03 pm

      I love them fat as can be! :) I’m so glad you liked them!!

    Just made these for the first and probably last time. They did not come out like bars at all. More like blobs. I followed the recipe to a T to no avail. I even cooked them 5 minutes longer. The white chips haven’t even melted….


    • Dorothy Kern replied on May 18th, 2014 at 1:33 pm

      Hi Barbara, I’m sorry about that. The white chips aren’t supposed to melt (you can see them in the bar in the picture). Kind of like a chocolate chip cookie? The pan of bars when removed from the oven is quite gooey, and needs time to set (hence the chilling). Once they’re chilled and cut, they taste amazing, even if they aren’t beautiful!

    I made a variation of these with red velvet cake mix (with cubes of cream cheese mixed in after it’s blended) and white chocolate chips. O-M-G, it was almost better than S-E-X! Thanks for the recipe!

    I’ve made these twice so far, and I have to tell you that my husband LOVES them. “I’d do anything to get more” were his words to describe them. Ha! Thanks for the recipe!

      I’m so glad Anne!!! Thanks for letting me know!

    Made my own version of these bars due to my mad love of rainbow chip cake mix and my complete inability to use a half of a can of sweetened condensed milk. Two rainbow chip cake mixes, two eggs, half cup each butter and plain yogut mixed to a thick batter. Two thirds spread in a parchment lined and sprayed 9 by 13 pan. Topped by two cups white chips and of course a whole can of sweetened condensed milk. Drop rest of batter by spoonfuls over top and bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Cool.


    • Dorothy Kern replied on June 25th, 2014 at 7:00 am

      LOVE IT! I know, I hate using half the can – but I’m usually making 100 other things, so it’s easy to use it. Using the whole can for a 9×13 is perfect!!

    I made the funfetti bars yesterday. My only note would be to use less or different sprinkles. I used Betty Crocker sprinkles and the colors blended together, it was messy and not as cute as the photos here. I followed the recipe exactly and it was very sweet.


    • Dorothy Kern replied on July 30th, 2014 at 12:43 pm

      I know, different sprinkles behave so differently! I use Cake Mate Sprinkles (I think they’re a product of BC, but not 100% sure) that come in a tub at some grocery stores and Walmart. Those always perform best for me!

    Oh my! The funfetti Gooey Cake Bars are devine! I made them on the 10th and couldn’t stop thinking about them long after they were gone! Tonight at the grocery store, my daughter asked to make them again! LOL….that’s my girl! :)
    We’ve already finished a row!! :)
    Then WOW, I saw the others in this post! I hadn’t looked beyond the Funfetti bars recipe!

    These look sooo good. This might be a silly question but all I have is a hand mixer… Would I be able to use that for these??

    I made this today but used chocolate cake mix and it turned out Great

    I just made these for Thanksgiving tomorrow (I know, a little nontraditional but who cares!) I just tried one and it was SO good & they were rather inexpensive to make too (cost of food is high where I live) So glad I came across this recipe! Thank You!


  115. miranda posted on January 10, 2015 at 11:45 pm (#)

    Does it matter what kind of cake mix can it be something else besides yellow 


    • Dorothy Kern replied on January 11th, 2015 at 3:15 pm

      You can use any flavor mix and any mix in (if you don’t want to use white chocolate chips).

    Love your blog! Planning on making this tonight.

      You can use either; when I made these I used salted. If you use unsalted you may just want to add 1/4 teaspoon of salt!

    I live in Ireland, so we use a different measurement system, could anyone tell me how I would make these using grammes, or ounces measurements for the ingredients. Thank you so much.


    • Dorothy Kern replied on March 19th, 2015 at 3:09 pm

      I’m sorry I don’t have those for you Tara. Maybe you could google the ingredients and see if it comes up with conversions?
