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.

Moist cake

Moist cake

Duncan hines is very moist but you can add 1 tsp of mayonaise to your mix before baking for added moistness.



If you want to frost brownies the fast and easy way and make it like smores, try this, take a bag of mini marshmallows(large ones don't work as well)spread them on brownies as soon as they come out of the oven(don't wait, they have to be hot)being careful not to break up the brownies. Then add pecans on top, delicious.
