INGREDIENTS

The Cake

  • One box spice cake mix
  • One egg
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • ⅓ cup of milk (you may need a little more or less)
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • 9” square cake pan

The Frosting

  • 2 cups confectioner’s sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • ½ teaspoons vanilla extract

To Decorate the Top

  • White/blue sprinkles and/or snowflake sprinkles
  • PEEPS Hot Chocolate Delights – at least two packs

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the spice cake mix with one egg and the vegetable oil. The mixture is going to be pretty thick, but this will give you a good idea of how much milk you need. I prepared ⅓ cup of milk and poured most of it in…then stirred. The goal is to get the mixture to just thin enough that it can be stirred. It will definitely be thicker than you are used to with a typical cake recipe.
  3. Once the mixture is thin enough to stir, mix well for several minutes. Then pour into a 9 x 9 non-stick or greased cake pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the center is done (you can test with a toothpick; make sure it comes out clean).
  4. Allow to cool for 30 minutes or until the center sets. While the cake bars are cooling, make the vanilla frosting.
  5. Place 2 cups of confectioners’ sugar in a bowl. Add 2 tablespoons butter, 2 tablespoons milk, and ½ teaspoon vanilla extract to the sugar. Stir to combine. The mixture should be frosting consistency; if it isn’t add a touch of milk and keep stirring until it reaches desired consistency.
  6. Immediately spread on the cake bars with a knife. Sprinkle your sprinkles and snowflakes on top; place your PEEPS directly into the icing. I used six so that I could cut some rather large bars, but you can fit nine PEEPS in the pan if you like.
