M&M Funfetti Bars

May 29, 2014Teresa

M&M Funfetti Bars are some of the most scrumptious dessert bars you’ll ever eat. A delicious confetti cake mix  is mixed with M&Ms and baked up to perfection. Then the bars are spread with vanilla buttercream icing, sprinkled with funfetti and more M&Ms are added on top. They are chocolaty, super-sweet, and decadent. M&M Funfetti Bars are sure to satisfy any sweet tooth craving and are a great dessert for entertaining.

Last Sunday we had a large group over for a pool party. We had plenty of people bringing sides, but only a few who signed up to bring desserts. I decided to whip this one up on the spur of the moment. John’s office staff had given him a large bag of M&Ms when he had his hip replacement surgery a couple of months ago.

They had been staring at me every time I looked at that spot on the counter. I knew it was time to do something with them. I love confetti cake mix batter as a starter for cookies. When you load them up with M&Ms, frost them with lots of vanilla buttercream icing, and load them up with more M&Ms, well something magical happens!

Certainly these dessert bars are very sweet so you can only eat a few bites at a time! 😉 But if you love M&Ms and a confetti cake mix taste, then these M&M Funfetti Bars are for you! Each bite is breathtaking. These are great for baby or bridal showers, tailgating parties, and holiday baking. These fabulous cookies just seem to dissolve in your mouth. Better give them a try soon!

I initially posted this recipe in May 2014. However, I tried to take the pictures without refrigerating the bars first. They were really sloppy looking so the pictures were pretty abysmal. I recently remade this recipe (June 2019) for our college group Bible study. But I actually refrigerated the dessert overnight before taking the pictures. They were a lot cleaner that way.

These brownies were a big hit with everyone. I’m sure they’ll be a hit with your family too.
