Confetti Bars are a fun treat for kids and so easy to make. This recipe for cake mix cookie bars uses yellow cake mix, sprinkles and white chocolate chips.
You can quickly mix these up after the kids go to bed and pop them into their lunch boxes for a sweet surprise at school.
I also love that I can whip up a pan of these cookie bars quickly after dinner for a special movie night treat.

This recipe for cake mix cookie bars is perfect for making with your kids. I find that quick recipes are the best for getting small kids exciting about cooking and baking. Since small children can lose interest quickly, using a cake box mix allows them to still do a little measuring and mixing, but speeds up the process.
They’ll especially love adding sprinkles and marshmallows to these bars.
A great idea is to help your kids make these before a playdate with friends. They’ll be so proud of themselves when they share these tasty confetti bars with their friends.
