Valentine’s Funfetti 7 Layer Bars

What is a holiday without some festive Funfetti recipes? A holiday lacking a whole lot of fun, that’s what. So I took it upon myself to make sure you got your dose of Funfetti this Valentine’s Day with a 7-layer bar. I really enjoying making these bars, because it’s an easy way to use up things in the pantry leftover from a previous baking expedition. Such as cherry baking chips. And typical for 7-layer bars, these will disappear as magically as they appeared.

While we are on the subject of disappearing acts, I’ve learned something about portion sizes and their relation to how quickly they will get eaten. Take these bars for example. When I first brought them into work I had them sliced into 24 bars, but my labmates cut them into fourths in an effort to feel less guilty about eating such a decadent treat. Of course they were neglecting to notice that instead of eating one or two fourths of a whole bar, they were eating 6ish = 1.5 bars. If they had just eaten the bar as I had cut it originally, they would have actually consumed less of it! Yet somehow the guilt factor is different. The moral of the story? Ignorance is bliss (and now I know how to deceive them O:-) ).
