This was a guest post we did a while back for Cupcake Diaries, it’s super yummy, I hope you like it.
I don’t know how you all feel, but one thing that immediately turns my mind to summer is Lemonade. And even better than regular lemonade is Strawberry Lemonade! A tall, cold glass of Strawberry Lemonade is the perfect treat for me on a hot summer day. That’s when I thought of these yummy Strawberry Lemonade Cake Batter Cookie Bars! And the best thing is they are SOOOOO easy!
As I was looking around online, I found this recipe from Southern Bite that helped me have a jumping off point. Add in the ease of Duncan Hines Frosting Creations and this recipe is super easy and perfect for taking to a potluck or summer picnic!
Strawberry Lemonade Cake Batter Cookie Bars
Adapted from Southern Bite
1 box Duncan Hines Yellow Cake Mix (or any yellow cake mix)
1 small box Jello Lemon Instant Pudding
1/3 cup water
2/3 cup oil
Juice of one lemon
Mix all of the ingredients together in a medium size bowl. Batter will be very thick. Spray a 9 x 13 pan with non stick spray and spread the batter evenly in the pan. If you would like a thinner cookie bar, use a larger pan or split between two pans. Bake at 350°F for 20-25 minutes. The edges will be golden brown and the middle will be soft. Let cool in pan.
For the frosting pick up a can of Duncan Hines Frosting Starter and 1 pack of Duncan Hines Frosting Creations in Strawberry Lemonade. Mix the packet into the frosting starter, and spread evenly on the cooled cookie bars.
Feel free to garnish with sprinkles, lemon zest or keep them plain! This recipe got RAVE reviews from everyone that ate them. My sweet little niece wrote me a note that said they were “delicious” and “yummy”! Who can argue with that?!
