Funfetti Cake Mix Brownies
Funfetti cake mix brownies are super easy to whip up in half an hour or less, and they are as pretty and yummy as store bought brownies.
These funfetti cake brownies are dense, rich, and delicious, with the texture of a brownie and the taste of a bakery style sugar cookie. The recipe is beyond easy, and a batch of these treats can be made, cut, and served in less than an hour.
A note on sprinkles: the more the merrier! I buy the largest bottle of sprinkles that I can find, as I use them liberally any time I make cupcakes, sugar cookies, or funfetti anything!
A note on cook time: These should be very moist in the center, so watch closely. As soon as the edges begin to be visibly turning golden, remove the pan. The bars will firm up just right as they harden. Under baking is always preferable to over baking:-)
A note on pan prep: Life in the kitchen is always better with parchment AND cooking spray! Lining a pan with parchment before spraying with Pam makes it so easy to lift the entire batch from the pan (after completely cool) so that cutting in pretty, even pieces is a snap.
Let me hear back from you if you try these; I’d love to hear your thoughts! Thanks so much for reading! Be blessed, and stay savvy!
Funfetti Cake Mix Brownies
The savvy addition of almond extract gives these bars a bakery bought sugar cookie flavor, and the sprinkles add color, crunch, and fun!!!
- 1 box funfetti or white cake mix (I use Duncan Hines)
- 1/3 cup vegetable or canola oil
- 2 large eggs
- 1 tsp almond extract
- 1/4 to 1/2 cup sprinkles (use less if using funfetti cake mix)
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 2-3 TB water
- 1/2 tsp almond extract
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Line baking pan (11 x 13) with parchment and spray with Pam.
- In medium bowl, lightly whisk eggs, milk, oil, and almond extract.
- Add cake mix and sprinkles (if using).
- Mix until well combined.
- Spread batter into pan.
- Top with extra sprinkles (if desired).
- Bake for 20 minutes, or until edges just barely begin to brown.
- Remove; allow to cool for at least 20 minutes before cutting into bars.
- Store in airtight container.
- Mix sugar, water and extract until smooth. Stir in sprinkles.
- Pour glaze over brownies; spread with a pastry brush.
- Allow glaze to cool and set; cut brownies into squares.

Hi Jen! You only use milk if you want to make a glaze. To make a glaze, use 1 cup powdered sugar and then add milk (or water or lemon juice) 1 TB per time until the consistency you like!
Still no measurement on how much milk :(
Hi Angela, I am so sorry; it is corrected!!! Let me know if you have any other issues. I’d love to hear how the brownies turn out!!! XoXo
The directions don’t match the ingredient list. :(
And there is only milk (or water) in the glaze. I use water. It is 1-2 TB to thin the powdered sugar. Extract is optional……if using do 1/2 tsp. Vanilla is the best or almond if you do Funfetti:-)
Hi Brandi! I am so sorry! I have a plug in that has totally messed up some of my recipes (this being one). I have someone working on it now. In the meantime, go to my strawberry brownies blog post. Make it as specified, just use Funfetti cake mix and sprinkles. Add white chips IF you want, but I find it too sweet. Let me know how it turns out!
It says to whisk milk in with the oil and eggs but there is no amount of milk in the ingredients… how much milk? It also has white chocolate chips but doesn’t have the amount in the ingredients either
Sorry Dan, I had left that out. You add oil with the eggs, water, and almond flavor. Thanks for pointing this out; I am correcting it now! Hope you enjoy them!!!
Wehen do you miss in the vegetable oil? Step missing?
