6 Funfetti Recipes for Your Inner Child

Embrace your favorite childhood treat in these tasty, colorful recipes

There’s no food that brings us more joy than funfetti. Its colors are wonderfully bright, its taste is so overly sweet that we can’t help but love it, and its sugar content literally makes us smile. This childhood favorite still holds a special place in our heart. Here are our six of our favorite ways to embrace our inner child by cooking with this amazing ingredient.

Fairy Bread

Funfetti is served in its most simple format in this classic Australian childhood treat. Whether you treat yourself to a slice of fairy bread for breakfast, or have it alongside a cup of coffee in the late morning, this pretty treat always makes us endlessly happy. We are keen to copy the Australian tradition and have this at every kid’s birthday party from now on.

Funfetti Birthday Cake Waffles

Your weekend brunch waffles just got a dramatic improvement. Simply cook your boxed funfetti cake mix in your waffle iron and serve it with plenty of whipped cream, chocolate sauce, and extra sprinkles for the ultimate birthday (or just any day  we’re happy to encourage such decadent daily behavior) breakfast.

Funfetti Protein Overnight Oats

Add a touch of naughtiness and fun to your sensible, healthy, wholesome overnight oats. Simple overnight oats are combined with sprinkles and a sweet frosting made of protein powder and almond milk. If you want to improve your breakfasts, but really are a health-obsessive at heart, then this is the way to go.

Funfetti Sugar Cookie Bars

We guarantee that these funfetti sugar cookie bars will make you as happy now as they would have done when you were a kid. Make them in a big batch, top them with buttercream and extra sprinkles, and take to a potluck or serve at the end of your next dinner party for the sweetest treat, which will thrill both kids and adults.

Gluten-Free Funfetti Cake Doughnuts

Just because you’re eating gluten-free doesn’t mean you have to miss out on all the joy of funfetti. Use your favorite gluten-free cake mix, add in extra sprinkles as desired, and bake in your doughnut pan (if you don’t have one by now, it’s time to get one). Top with icing and an extravagant amount of colorful, glittering sprinkles.
