Freqently Asked Questions
How To Store
Keep these Cake Mix Blondies stored in an airtight container kept at room temperature. Enjoy within a week!
Do These Blondies Freeze Well?
They sure do! To do so, allow the blondies to completely cool then just slice them into individual serving sizes and wrap them tightly in plastic wrap. Place the wrapped squares into a Ziploc freezer bag then put it in the freezer for up to 3 months.
What Other Sprinkles Can I Use For These Blondies?
I’d recommend sticking with the long, thin rainbow jimmies since they hold their shape the best when baking. Using other sprinkles like nonpareils may break down and bleed into the batter.
Can I Add White Chocolate Chips Into This Recipe?
Definitely! I think that would make for a delicious variation on these blondies!
