Hayley Parker Recipe shared by:

These fun, unique bars get their blue color and cotton candy flavor from the wonderful Frosting Creations packets and their great texture and ease from a box of cake mix. White chocolate chips add a nice crunch, along with plenty of rainbow sprinkles! They can feed and please a crowd--kids and adults alike--reminiscent of a summertime carnival anytime of year.

Garnish Tip

Garnish Tip

It is always a good idea to garnish your dessert with the flavor that is in it as well as adding complementary fruit. It is especially important when there are nuts in your dessert. If there are nuts in your dessert, always try to garnish with the nut that is in the mixture. This is a way to inform your guests that are sensitive to certain foods.
