Frosted Funfetti Blondies are chewy blondie bars loaded with sprinkles! Topped with a thick vanilla frosting and even more sprinkles, these are the perfect festive treat for any celebration.
You don’t have to be a kid to LOVE sprinkles. Even the most business-like adult can’t resist a colorful plate of Funfetti Cookies or a Funfetti Cupcakes.

Why These Blondies are Best
Using our favorite cake batter blondies as a base, today’s are even better!
- Soft, chewy blondies with creamy vanilla flavor.
- Sprinkles and white chocolate chips are baked right into the batter.
- A thick layer of vanilla frosting on top for more decadent sweetness.
- You can make them with any color sprinkles for different holidays and festivities!
Along with eggs and flour, you will need these key ingredients for frosted Funfetti blondies.
- Melted butter makes blondies super chewy and tender.
- Light brown sugar mixed with the butter creates a slightly caramelized sweetness you’ll love.
- Vanilla extract is the primary flavor in both the blondie bars themselves and the frosting. We love baking with this homemade Instant Pot Vanilla Extract.
- Sprinkles. Use long skinny sprinkles (jimmies) for this funfetti dessert.
- White chocolate chips are the perfect mix-in to complement the colorful sprinkles!
- Vanilla frosting is made with butter, powdered sugar, milk and additional vanilla extract.

Tips and Tricks
I’ve made more than my share of blondie recipes over the years and learned a few things along the way.
- Line your baking pan with parchment paper. This prevents sticking and makes it easy to lift the baked blondies out of the pan when they’re done.
- The blondies will still be soft in the middle when they are done baking. The center will set to chewy perfection as the blondies cool.
- Change up the sprinkle colors. This is an easy way to adapt these blondies for different seasons or holidays.
Try the recipe with red and green sprinkles at Christmas, pink for Valentine’s Day, or red and blue for the 4th of July. I love trying all kinds of color combinations!
Today, I chose a variety of rainbow sprinkles for blondies with a classic birthday cake flair.
Only jimmies style sprinkles or confetti sprinkles (the flat discs) should be used in the batter for this recipe. Nonpareil sprinkles (the round ball kind) tend to bleed color into the batter as they bake. This changes the appearance and color of the blondies. For the frosting, any kind of sprinkles can be used.
These blondies should be soft, fudgy and chewy when cooled. If your blondies are greasy you may not have mixed the ingredients together thoroughly. The butter and brown sugar should be well combined before adding the other ingredients. Adding too much flour can also cause crumbly, greasy brownies. Make sure you’re measuring flour correctly for best results.
These blondies can be frozen, but for prettiest presentation, I don’t recommend it. While frozen Frosted Funfetti Blondies will taste delicious after thawing, the sprinkles will leak their color into the bars.
Store these Frosted Funfetti Blondies at room temperature. Keep them in a sealed airtight container to maintain freshness.

These look so good! I want to make them as a double batch in a 9×13 dish, how long would they need to bake in the oven at 350?
Thiis recipe did not work. After baking for 35 minutes, the middle was still gooey and raw. Continued baking for another 20 minutes and the edges got done, but everything else was still gooey. Super sweet and too buttery. There was butter oozing out of the bars as you cut them. And frosting? If you put that on top, you would go into a diabetic coma.
funfetti is the beeeest! Love these delish blondies!
I love how thick these bars are- funfetti is the best 🙂
I LOVE how your organize the sprinkles by holiday! So fun. And these blondies? Incredible. Funfetti makes everything that much more delicious (especially considering blondies are already my favorite baked good).
I’m a big fan of blondies as well 🙂
These are just too pretty to eat!

Blondies are amazing and your recipe is perfect maked
Oh gawwwwd. They look so fudgy and chewy….I can see myself having “just one more” and failing miserably 😛 😀 <3
EPIC sprinkle fail. Crazy epic. And when you knocked over that paper plate, how many expletives came out of your mouth? Just wondering. Because I would be cussing up a blue streak.
Glitter is worse, though. It just stays forever. I’m always finding it on my kids’ scalps. And it doesn’t come off!
If it’s any consolation, finding sprinkles in your kitchen for months to come is worth these perfect blondies. They look so good! And now you get to buy all new sprinkles and organize them by holiday. Which is not weird at all, btw.
I’m in love! Sprinkles everywhere!
These look so fun and yummy! And I say, the more sprinkles the merrier! 😀
Sprinkles and blondies…two of my favorite things! Love all the fun color in these yummy treats! And yes frosting is necessary!
Dear Aimee, these look fun and decadent. I should bake more often with sprinkles. I’m with Kellie, I would not have noticed either…I feel like I lose something everyday. After a while, you just get used to it! Pinning these for later. xo, Catherine
I wouldn’t have noticed my sprinkles were out of order….there is no order in my pantry. How I wish I were organized….but I’d rather sit and eat a pile of these fabulous blondies. They look fantastic!
These look so good! I can’t wait to try them!
People call glitter the herpes of the craft world… I think spilled sprinkles are the herpes of the baking world. HAHAHA 😉 LOVE this recipe though!!!
Funfetti and Blondies are my two wonderful combinations. These look delicious!
