Funfetti Marshmallow Bars

I am not a very adventurous baker.
I use the same sugar cookie recipe I first tried.
I tried it, I liked it, others liked it, so why change?
I use glaze icing on my cookies,
because that is what I started with.
I liked it...why change?
I have tried to get out of my
comfort zone a few times,
it was not traumatizing, but I always go back to what
I started with.
Recently Kristan of Confessions of a Cookbook Queen
and Shelly of Cookies and Cups, announced that
they would be having a Recipe Contest.
This is a contest like none other I had seen before.
One that I thought I could actually do.
One that I got very excited about.
You see, they ask entrants to search THEIR blogs,
 find a recipe, and change it up a bit.
Take THEIR recipe, and adapt it into a different recipe all your own.
Oh...I can do that.
Yep Yep Yep.
I have been following them both for YEARS,
but not in the creepy, stalky way, but in a
"wow, they are amazing" way, which is totally cool.
I spent days looking around to find the
perfect recipe (which was really hard, because everything looked so YUMMY)
In the end, I chose
Here is a picture of her bars.
Don't they look Yummy?
While I have not tried them yet, they will be made soon, very soon.
I changed it up a little, adding my own little twist.

AND  OMG...I died a little!
Soooo good!
I changed it up by using a Funfetti cake mix and Mini M&M's.
I will be making this recipe again soon, like this week.
My mind is spinning at all the combinations that I want to try.
I am entering this Funfetti Marshmallow Bar  in the Creative Recipe Contest hosted by Confessions of a Cookbook Queen and Cookies and Cups!
Make sure you check out all the entries, I know I will be.
Funfetti Marshmallow Bars

  • 1 box Funfetti Cake Mix
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 a stick) butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 egg
  • 3 cups mini marshmallows
  • ½  cup Mini  M&Ms


1.  Preheat oven to 375.  Spray 9×13 pan with nonstick spray and set aside.
2.  In the bowl of a mixer, combine cake mix, butter, water and egg.  Mix on medium low until a smooth, thick batter forms.  Press batter evenly into pan.  Bake for about 20 minutes, until puffy and a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Immediately top with marshmallows and candy — place back in the oven for a couple minutes, just long enough for marshmallows to puff up.
3.  Let cool completely before cutting and serving.

 Thank you Kristan and Shelly for hosting this
fun project. 
Thank you for being the awesome supportive
bloggers that you are.
The world is much better place
because of people like you.
