Funfetti Cheesecake Bars {Guest Post}

Today is awesome!  Do you want to know why??  It is my birthday!  And I think that it is going to be a good one because I should be on a flight right about now to Miami.  I am going on a cruise with my hubby!  Isn’t that a great way to celebrate a birthday?  I am so excited to have my first guest poster while I am gone.  I was able to meet Kristy at a recent blog conference that I attended.  She is so cute and fun and I am so excited to have her at The Recipe Critic!  I love that she is sharing Funfetti Cheesecake Bars.  Two of my favorite things in one!  How did she know??  So many memories came back to me when I saw these.  I would ask for a funfetti cake every year for my birthday when I was growing up.  I can’t wait to try these when I get home!  

Hey Recipe Critic readers! I’m Kristy and I blog over at Sweet Treats & More, where I share a lot of indulgent treats balanced with healthy meals, because I believe we can have the best of both worlds.  I’d love for to come say hi! I’m slightly jealous Alyssa is off basking in the sun while I freeze here in the winter snow, but I’m happy to be guest posting while she’s gone. Because today’s her birthday!! So we are going to celebrate properly and do some indulging!


I thought these Funfetti Cheesecake Bars would be perfect to celebrate her birthday with.  Because everyone loves Funfetti cake and everyone loves cheesecake, right? I sure hope the birthday girl does. 

You use a Funfetti cake mix to make the crust, and use Funfetti Frosting mixed with cream cheese and eggs to make the cheesecake layer.  Yeah, an entire can of frosting!  I told ya we were indulging.  But they are so easy to make and a definite crowd pleaser. 
Happy Birthday to our favorite Recipe Critic!! 


Funfetti Cheesecake Bars

Ingredients:
  • Betty Crocker Rainbow Chip Cake Mix (or Pillsbury Funfetti Cake Mix)
  • 1 container Betty Crocker Rainbow Chip Frosting (or Pillsbury Funfetti Frosting)
  • 2 (8 oz) sticks of cream cheese, soft
  • 1 stick butter, soft
  • 3 eggs
Preheat oven to 350.

Beat the cake mix, butter and 1 egg together until it forms a crumbly dough and press into greased 9×13 inch pan.

In another bowl, beat cream cheese, frosting, and 2 eggs together until creamy.  Pour cream cheese mixture over the cake batter crust.

Bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes or until the edges start to pull away from the pan.

Cut into squares, top with a dollop of whipped cream and serve!
