I take these bars to work for Friday pick-me-ups. I love to share them because they're so easy to eat, easy to make and easy on the wallet. —Amy Rose, Ballwin, Missouri

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 25, 2014

I have found it is just as easy to buy the Funfetti cake mixes and use those rather than adding jimmies to a plain mix. I made a pretty one with the Stars and Stripes mix out at 4th of July. One complaint with this recipe is that it's hard to spread batter in pan--not so much fault of the recipe--I believe it is because of the now-reduced cake mix sizes. They used to be 18 oz.; now a regular mix is 15.25 ounces. Does make a difference! Anyways, had to use floured hands/spoon to spread out and make work!

Absolutely delicious and so easy! I do use a 9X13 pan instead so they're a little thicker. I've made these 4 times already!

Nice and easy to make. I substituted chocolate chips for the white chips and jimmies. They came out great!

Very good recipe. Kids thought they tasted like birthday cake. Easy, peasy.

I don't know what I did wrong, but my bars were more fluffy like cake. They still tasted good, though.
