Cake Batter Cookies

A perfect mashup of a white chocolate chip cookie and cake batter: These cookies are SERIOUSLY the BEST… They are soft, but have the perfect chewy texture with a little bit of a crunchy edge. Oh and did I say they are FILLED with sprinkles?! A party in your mouth :)

I’m not kidding when I say these are the BEST cookies ever. Any time I bring them to a party, they get rave reviews. They take a little bit of chilling time in the fridge, so be sure to plan ahead when making them (but they are seriously worth it)! Chilling the dough allows the butter to firm up and prevents the cookie from spreading too much in the oven.

These cookies use a dry boxed cake mix. I like to use a yellow or vanilla cake mix. I’m sure using chocolate or another flavor would be great, but I have not tried that yet. Let me know if you do! The fun part about these cookies is that you can use whatever sprinkle mix you would like. I have used red, white, and blue for the 4th of July and red and green around Christmas! Have fun making (AND EATING) them!
