Instructions
  1. Mix 1 can of sweetened condensed milk with ½ c white cake mix in a large glass bowl.
  2. Add 2 c white chocolate chips, and mix well.
  3. Microwave the mixture for 1 minute, and then remove and stir well. If the chocolate chips are not completely melted, return to the microwave for an additional 20 seconds. Be careful not to overheat, or you will scorch the chocolate chips.
  4. Add ½ tsp vanilla flavoring and mix well.
  5. Divide the mixture evenly between two bowls.
  6. In the first bowl, add blue food coloring to the mixture. Start with 5-6 drops, and add more until you get the desired tint of blue you would like. I added approximately 15 drops, as I wanted a brighter blue.
  7. In the second bowl, add red food coloring to the mixture. Again, start with 5-6 drops, and add more until you get the desired tint of red you would like. Set both the red and blue mixtures aside.
  8. Repeat steps 1 and 2 with the remaining ingredients. Let the mixture cool slightly, then fold in approximately ¼ c of red, white, and blue sprinkles. You don’t want the sprinkles to melt or the colors to bleed, which will happen if the mixture is too hot.
  9. Pour the blue mixture into the foil lined baking dish. Make sure it is smooth, and evenly covers the dish.
  10. Next, add the white mixture with sprinkles on top of the blue mixture. Again, make sure it is smooth, and evenly covers the dish.
  11. Add the red mixture on top of the white mixture, and smooth evenly across the dish.
  12. Sprinkle approximately ¼ c of red, white, and blue sprinkles all over the red layer. Using your hand, pat down the sprinkles lightly to get them to stick to the top layer.
  13. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or until set.
  14. Remove from the foil pan, cut into bars, and enjoy!
