Cotton Candy Oreo Bars

These incredibly sweet Cotton Candy Oreo Bars have chewy Cotton-Candy flavored Oreos and white chocolate chips nestled inside the sweet, gooey layers. They're so fun and sprinkly!So, I’m a total sucker for the latest and greatest sweet treat. The new Oreo flavors are no exception.

Each time a new one’s released, I stalk my local Target pretty much on the daily for the latest flavor. I wait (impatiently) for the release date because I’m so freakin’ eager to try the latest creation so I can shovel them in my mouth one by one while contemplating dessert possibilities.

There have been some I didn’t care for (lime, red velvet) and others I loved (caramel apple, banana split(!!)), and when I heard about the newest Cotton Candy Golden Oreos, I knew it’d be love at first bite.

Because cotton candy. DUH.

If there’s two flavors I adore no matter what, it’s bubblegum and cotton candy. Consider my teeth the sweetest because those two flavors know no bounds in my book. Ice cream, cocktails, cookies, cakes, frostings, candies, and of course, their typical selves.

And these Oreos, in my humble (correct) opinion, are the best. I mean, seriously damn good. They are super sweet, but what do you expect when you bite into a COTTON CANDY OREO? A salisbury steak? No. You expect sugar in and around your mouth. So hush up with the “too sweet” commentary. Congrats on your stellar observation skills, Sherlock.

Cotton Candy Oreo BarsAnd these bars? Out of control sweet. Like, make your teeth hurt sweet. But worth it – so worth it. They’re a spin of my Cotton Candy Bars which I made four score and seven years ago and caused me to be called a racist because a woman thought corn-rows were racist – true story. ANYWHO. Racism aside, these bars are the upgraded version to the original, thanks to these sweet, limited edition Cotton Candy Oreos. And they’re mega delish.

So, long story short, if you like cotton candy, Golden Oreos, impossibly sweet stuff, and sprinkles, you are my new best friend, and you’ll adore these bars. (Not so) plain & simple.

NOW EAT.

These super sweet chewy bars taste like cotton candy, thanks to the special-flavored Golden Oreos and cotton candy oil, which you can find online or in craft stores.
Ingredients
  • 1 box blue velvet cake mix (or white cake mix)
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup melted butter
  • 3 drams cotton candy oil (like the kind by Lor-Ann), divided
  • ¾ pkg Cotton Candy Oreos (may substitute regular Golden if needed)
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 can vanilla frosting
  • Sprinkles
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line an 8x8" baking dish with foil, extending the sides of the foil over the edges of the pan. Spray the foil liberally with cooking spray and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the blue velvet cake mix, egg, melted butter, and two (2) drams of cotton candy oil with a spoon until a soft dough has formed. If you cannot find the blue velvet cake mix, substitute white cake mix and tint it with blue food coloring. Press ¾ of the mixture into the prepared pan in an even layer.
  3. Coarsely chop the Cotton Candy Oreos and sprinkle them on top of the bar base. Top evenly with the white chocolate chips. Drizzle on the sweetened condensed milk until a layer covers the bars (you may not need the entire can of milk). Crumble the remaining dough over top of the bars, trying to cover it completely as best you can.
  4. Bake for approx. 25 minutes or until the center is set and the top is lightly golden brown. Cool completely, preferably overnight.
  5. Tint the vanilla frosting pink and stir in the remaining dram of cotton candy oil to combine. Drizzle over the cut bars and sprinkle with rainbow jimmies. Serve!

They're so fun and sprinkly!Unsure of what a “dram” is? Drams are miniature bottles of highly concentrated flavorings or extracts that are commonly used in baking and candy making. These oils tend to be more potent than your average extract sold at the grocery store, which makes them perfect for flavoring these bars since a little goes a long way. You can find the cotton candy drams in some craft stores, such as Michael’s, Jo-Ann or Hobby Lobby, but a surefire bet is to order them ONLINE.

And be sure to hunt down the limited edition Cotton Candy Golden Oreos at your local Target store!

  1. ooooooooooohhhhhhhhhh so colorful! so pretty pretty! and I was skeptical about these Oreo’s but you’ve sold me!

  2. These bars are so fun, Hayley! Love the pretty colors packed in side. I so need to find these oreos.

  3. These look out-of-control in a good way. 🙂 I’m a total sucker for bubble gum flavoring. My favorite ice cream flavor is still bubble gum. No shame in that. Have you smelled the cotton candy candle at Target? It’s called “Sweet Spun Sugar” and it’s always burning in my bedroom. 😀

      OMG ERIN! We are twins, it’s settled. My favorite ice cream in the whole wide world has to be bubblegum! So amazing 🙂

  4. I just saw these on Pinterest and my whole being just screamed, “YESSSSS.” I am very much a fan of these. And I’m also a fan of stalking products at Target. Target is life!

  5. Hahaha I love your comment about people thinking cotton candy oreos are “too sweet” . I always hate when people say that to me too, like you make a pan of fudge brownies and they are like “it’s to chocolately” I’m like what did you expect?!?!?!

    • thedomesticrebel says:

      Katelyn – RIGHT?! It’s so annoying, especially when Starbucks released their birthday cake frappuccino and everyone complained about it being too sweet. Lol, it’s a CAKE BATTER milkshake. What in the world do you expect to be tasting?! Lol! Glad someone agrees with me!

  6. These are so much fun! Cotton candy golden Oreos?! Insane!

  7. So I think Oreo needs to make a bubblegum flavor for you. Lol! I would try it. I loved these Cotton Candy Oreos!
