These Funfetti Truffle Bars have a shortbread bottom, Oreo truffle filling and creamy vanilla frosting. And lots of sprinkles, of course!
I’m super excited about this treat I have to share with you today. If you love shortbread, Oreos, birthday cake, frosting and sprinkles, you’re gonna want to stick around. This Funfetti Truffle Bars recipe is one of those recipes that has been swimming around in my head for several months now. I’m sure not everyone has recipe ideas swimming around in their heads, but since we’ve been sharing recipes with you this past year, I think food. And I think food often.
A question Matt and I often ask each other is, “What are you thinking about?” He generally thinks about work and science/techy stuff that I don’t ever have a hope of understanding. My answer is usually “Food!”. On our last date night he asked what I was thinking and I happened to be thinking about how the restaurant prepared and presented my chicken salad. His comment was: “That’s kind of nerdy…but I like it!” I’m so thankful for a husband that loves me for my nerdiness!
These Funfetti Truffle Bars were inspired by my intense love of shortbread and Oreo truffles. Both are such an easy dessert, and I knew I had to combine them!
The shortbread is a simple mixture of softened butter, flour and sugar.
The truffle layer is just a package of birthday cake Oreos and cream cheese all mixed together.
And the frosting layer? Simple…it’s Pillsbury vanilla frosting!
And of course, I had to top the bars with some more chopped up Oreos.
When you make these, you’ll want to prepare the truffle mixture while the shortbread is baking. When the shortbread comes out of the oven, you will let it cool for just two minutes, then you’ll press the truffle layer on top. Allow it to cool for about 15 more minutes before spreading the on the vanilla frosting and sprinkling the top with chopped Oreos and sprinkles.
An important step for these colorful Funfetti Truffle Bars is to allow them to cool in the fridge after they are frosted. When I started cutting into them right after they were done (because I really was too impatient to wait to try them!) the truffle layer wasn’t completely sticking to the shortbread layer. I almost counted them a failure. But after they set in the fridge for about 2 hours, the layers stuck together nicely in a bar form. A sweet, colorful, amazing little birthday cake flavored treat.
These bars look absolutely AMAZING! And Kizmos products are awesome…the more color in my kitchen they happier I am!
OMG these look AMAZING!!!!! I might have to make myself another birthday treat…..! 🙂
Such a fun treat!!
I made these bars for my husband’s birthday yesterday. While they were delicious, they were so sweet and rich that most of us could only take a few bites! We sat around the table brainstorming some ways to cut the sweetness. I wondered about using chocolate frosting instead of vanilla. Have you tried that at all? I think it could be delicious! I think the key for my family was that we just needed smaller pieces – it was just too sweet!
These look awesome! I love me some funfetti!
Looks delicious. Thanks for linking up at Happiness is Homemade!
