Birthday Cake Oreo Stuffed Funfetti Cookie Bars

Have you ever seen the show Extreme Couponing? My friend got me into it a while ago and once I watched there was no turning back. If you've watched it then you should be familiar with the "stockpile" concept. I am certainly not the proud owner of any sort of stockpile when it comes to groceries, although I must admit it has crossed my mind to stockpile every bag of Limited Edition Birthday Cake Oreo available at my grocery store. In fact I was caught red-handed by a friend last weekend at the store. She couldn't stop laughing when she saw my grocery bag full of the cookies! Oh well.

When preparing for dinner at a friend's house last weekend, I wanted to make a dessert to bring. This particular friend loves dessert and has had many of my "go-tos" so I wanted to bake something different. I decided to try something new based off of a delicious recipe my friend Linda gave me almost 10 years ago. Linda is famous for her cookie bars and I always looked forward to the days she would bring them into the office. I have been making them for years now and they are always a hit. Her dessert partnered with my new-found love for Birthday Cake Oreos resulted in this delicious hybrid I wanted to share with you. These bars are easy, quick and sure to make your friends (or self) happy!

Birthday Cake Oreo Stuffed Funfetti Cookie Bars

(Note: You can see that I baked these in my cookie bar pan, but next time I would just bake them in an 9x13 pan.)

1 package Funfetti cake mix
¼ cup water
2 eggs
¼ cup margarine, softened
¼ cup brown sugar
1 package Birthday Cake Oreos

Preheat oven to 375.
Combine ½ of cake mix with everything except Oreos. Mix well. Add remaining cake mix. (Mixture will be very thick.) Place half of the batter into a 9x13 pan that has been greased and floured. Layer Oreos on top of batter (see pictures above.) Top with remaining batter. Bake approximately 20 minutes. Cool and cut into bars.
