How to make confetti cake mix cookies. 

All that is needed to make a batch of these pretty, little babies is a box of white (or yellow) cake mix, some oil, two large eggs, vanilla extract and a just a handful of colorful sprinkles. We are baking fanatics here and we always have sprinkles in the pantry (Okay, I might actually have a large tote filled with a small hoard of seasonal sprinkles… but, that discussion will have to wait for it’s own post!)

However, if you don’t have sprinkles around on the daily like me, don’t sweat it. These chewy cake mix cookies are absolutely delicious without the sprinkles added in.

I’ll also share with you all how much my kids love to make these with me. If you are looking for recipes that are suitable for children, cake mix cookies are always a perfect baking project for kiddos! Just a handful of ingredients make cake mix cookies a seriously straightforward recipe. Little ones will love to help you while you whip up a batch and bigger kids can make these independently!

Stay safe and stay well, my friends! Stay home!

Happy baking, y’all! xoxo – M
