GoldenOreoBarsGraphicI’m going to admit something that might make me sound like a bad mommy for a moment. I really don’t like to bake or cook with the kids. It stresses me out and I use my time in the kitchen to help me relax. There’s a lot of hot things and sharp objects in the kitchen, and Bryn doesn’t conform to normal rules like not touching a hot stove or playing with knives. It’s just 100% stress with that one. 

So why do I bring up this fact about the girls? Well, this is the perfect recipe to make with your kids in the kitchen. It has only a few ingredients, uses a boxed cake mix and has sprinkles (which I’m pretty sure every kid loves). Also, while I was chopping the Oreos (which is the only dangerous part about this recipe), I just let the kids “help” by sampling a cookie. So that pretty much makes me the best mom ever, right? 

We made these for the sapping party and they were a huge hit. So huge, in fact, that I only got one and I was kind if bummed about that. 

Read on for the recipe.

Ingredients
  1. 1 box yellow cake mix
  2. 1/4 cup canola oil (or vegetable oil)
  3. 1 egg
  4. 1/2 cup milk
  5. 1/2 cup sprinkles
  6. 1 1/2 cup Golden Oreos, chopped (I used Double Stuf's because they are just too good not to)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Spray an 8x8 or 9x9 square baking pan with nonstick spray. Set aside.
  2. Combine first four ingredients in a large bowl. Add the milk and mix slowly. Fold in the chopped Golden Oreo pieces and sprinkles.
  3. Pour into prepared baking pan, sprinkle a few more sprinkles and crushed Oreos on top, and bake for 25-30 minutes until edges are just turning brown. Allow to cool for at least 30 minutes so the center sets, before cutting into squares.
