  • 1 18.25 ounce box white cake mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup sprinkles divided use


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a nonstick baking mat.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the cake mix, eggs, oil and vanilla until smooth. 
  • Stir in 1/4 cup of the sprinkles.
  • Roll the dough into tablespoon sized balls. 
  • Pour the remaining 1/2 cup of sprinkles onto a plate. Roll the balls of dough around in the sprinkles to coat.
  • Place the balls of dough 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheet. You will need to work in batches.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes or until cookies are set and lightly browned.
  • Cool, then remove from the baking sheet and repeat with the remaining dough. Serve immediately, or store in an air tight container for up to 3 days.


  1. You can really use any flavor of cake mix here to switch up the flavor a bit - yellow and chocolate cake mixes are nice options!
  2. I coat a tablespoon in cooking spray, then scoop balls of dough out of the bowl. It's easier to roll them that way, no sticking to your hands!
