Funfettti Ooey Gooey Cake Bars made with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter® Deliciously Simple™

C and I are going on a little tropical vacation the first week in March so I'm attempting to give up my beloved sweets until then. Beach body here I come! Obviously this is going to be difficult so I decided I needed one last hurrah before saying bye bye to sugar for a few months. These ooey gooey cake bars were the perfect treat to satisfy my sweet tooth for a few months.

Rather than using regular butter in this recipe I decided to substitute I Can't Believe It's Not Butter® Deliciously Simple™. I know the ol' healthy eating New Year's resolution gets a bad wrap - why do you need a new year to start eating healthy? - but between Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and NYE it's just too dang hard to start any other time. Deliciously Simple is something I could enjoy every day (without feeling guilty), and what makes it even better is it's made with ingredients I recognize like non-fat yogurt and vegetable oil. It worked wonderfully in this recipe, and would be a great topper for my morning English muffin with it's creamy, buttery taste. Now let me give you the recipe so you can try these out for yourselves!

Funfetti Ooey Gooey Cake Bars

1 box yellow cake mix
1/2 cup I Can't Believe It's Not Butter® Deliciously Simple
1 egg
2/3 cup rainbow sprinkles
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
1 cup white chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees, and spray a 9x9" pan with cooking spray. Mix cake mix, Deliciously Simple™, and egg in an electric mixer. Mix until a dough forms, and stir in 1/3 cup sprinkles. Press 2/3 of the dough into the bottom of the pan. Sprinkle white chocolate chips and remaining sprinkles over the dough, and pour sweetened condensed milk over the top. Flatten remaining dough evenly in the pan.

Bake bars for approximately 30 minutes until golden brown. Make sure you cool the bars completely before you slice or they will be too gooey to get out in one piece. I was a little too impatient and destroyed two bars, but let me tell ya, they tasted so good warm, right out of the pan!

Seriously. These little bars were so ah-maze-ing. My friends were absolutely raving over them! I think Deliciously Simple™ is going to be a new staple in my kitchen! Check out this fabulous product here!.
