Golden Oreo Cake Batter Bars
I’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.
- 1 box yellow cake mix
- 1/4 cup canola oil (or vegetable oil)
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 cup sprinkles
- 1 1/2 cup Golden Oreos, chopped (I used Double Stuf's because they are just too good not to)
- Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Spray an 8x8 or 9x9 square baking pan with nonstick spray. Set aside.
- Combine first four ingredients in a large bowl. Add the milk and mix slowly. Fold in the chopped Golden Oreo pieces and sprinkles.
- 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.
