"A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. "Much obliged," said he, pushing the plate aside; "I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills."--Jean Antheleme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste

Ingredients:  
Cake Batter Cookie Bars
1 pouch (1lb 1.5 oz) sugar cookie mix
1 box (15.75 oz) white cake mix
3 large eggs
1 cup (2 sticks) melted butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 Tbsp rainbow sprinkles

Frosting
cup butter, softened
1 cups powdered sugar
2-4 Tbsp milk ( I used 4 Tbsp heavy cream)
tsp almond extract
additional sprinkles for garnish

Directions:
Directions:
1. Heat oven to 350. Spray 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray or line it with parchment paper. Set aside.

2. In large mixing bowl, combine the dry sugar cookie mix, dry cake mix, eggs, melted butter and vanilla extract. Beat with hand held blender until combined. About 1 minute.

3. Add in the sprinkles and very gently (so the colors don't bleed) stir in the sprinkles using a wooden spoon or spatula.

4. Dump the batter into the prepared baking dish and spread out evenly. It helps if you drop it all over the baking dish instead of just one big pie. Use your hands to help spread it out.

5. Cook for 30-32 minutes. Edges will be golden brown and the center will look done and slightly puffy. Let cool completely, about 1 hour.

6. To make frosting: Use a handheld blender and beat the butter in a mixing bowl until creamy. Add in the powdered sugar, almond extract, and start with 1 Tbsp milk. Bled together and add additional milk until you get a spreadable consistency. They higher fat milk you use, the more you may need. If you use skim or 1% milk you will need less of it.

7. Spread the frosting over the cooled cookie bars. Sprinkle some additional sprinkles over top the frosting. Cut into bars right away and serve or they can be refrigerated or left at room temperature, until you serve them.

You can change sprinkle colors based on holidays.
