Is there anything better than a rainbow? I’ve never heard anyone bah-humbug a rainbow and obviously, to my kids, they are super magical. No matter how many times I make these Funfetti Cake Mix Blondies, their little eyes still light up with excitement! I totally love them too and I love how easy they are to make. I stir up everything in a bowl, toss the batter in a pan, and bam! I have amazing blondies!!

How to Make Funfetti Cake Mix Blondies
STEP ONE: Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and grease a 9×9 pan. In a large mixing bowl, mix the yellow cake mix, vegetable oil, vanilla extract, milk, and egg together. Fold in the rainbow sprinkles with a rubber spatula or wooden spoon. (Save some sprinkles to put on top.)
STEP TWO: Pour the batter into your greased pan and spread it evenly with a spatula. Sprinkle the reserved sprinkles over the batter. Bake the blondies for 30-35 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean.
STEP THREE: Allow the Funfetti Cake Mix Blondies to rest and cool for a few hours before cutting into 9 bars.
Tips for Success
- For this recipe, yellow cake mix is the preferred mix because it gives the Funfetti blondies the perfect texture. A white cake mix or funfetti cake mix won’t come out the same. I’ve tried and yellow is the way to go!
- The batter will be thicker than a cake mix and slightly stiff so it should be easy to spread with a spatula.
- You can add any color of sprinkles that you like- give your Funfetti Cake Mix Blondies some Christmas or Valentine’s Day flair using seasonal colors or use your favorite teams’ colors. Whatever you choose, have fun with sprinkles!
What is the difference between a brownie and a blondie?
The simple answer to this question is chocolate! Brownies are typically made with cocoa powder and sometimes chocolate chips, whereas blondies have no chocolate but have a delicious vanilla taste instead. Also, blondies are a more dense dessert and that is what makes it different from a fluffy, airy cake.
Can I add chocolate chips to the Funfetti Cake Mix Blondies?
Heck yes, you can! Many people choose to use white chocolate chips in Funfetti blondies but milk chocolate chips also work well in this recipe, it just depends on what you like. To add chocolate chips to this batter use 1/2 cup of any size chocolate chips.
