How to make funfetti cookies
You’ll only need a handful of ingredients to make funfetti cookies: cake mix, eggs, oil, vanilla extract, and sprinkles. That’s it! A box of white cake mix is mixed with the oil, egg and vanilla to form a thick batter, then a whole bunch of sprinkles are stirred in.
I believe there’s no such thing as too many sprinkles, so the balls of cookie dough are rolled in a second coating of sprinkles before they hit the oven.
You can use any kind of sprinkle you like here. During the holidays, I use Christmas sprinkles, or you could use pastel sprinkles for Easter or red white and blue for 4th of July. The possibilities are endless!
The final result is a soft and chewy cookie that’s delicious and fun to eat. Kids gravitate towards these cookies! I brought these cookies to a party last month and they were the first thing to go.
I try to always keep the ingredients for cake mix cookies in my pantry, you just never know when you’ll need a quick treat!
