We spent an entire day in the kitchen making cookie after cookie, and I think these new Cake Mix Sprinkle Cookies might be my new favorite. They come out of the oven super soft and chewy (and stay that way) and the sprinkles make them super festive. 

These are definitely made for those of you who like a soft cookie! My professional taste testers (Kenya, Chloe and Gemma) got home from school the day I made these and gave them their stamp of approval, which is always nice to get after a day full of baking in the kitchen. They couldn’t get enough of them!

For most of the cookies I make, there is a “chill” period where you have to let the dough sit in the refrigerator for a bit, but not with these! They go straight from dough to oven, which is the best when you’re baking for the Holidays and running out of refrigerator space (and time)! 

This is a really good recipe to get your kids involved with too. It’s so simple (hello only 4 ingredients!) and so much fun to get to pick out what dye free sprinkles to put in them. The possibilities are endless!

Good news for my gluten-free friends too! Use your favorite gluten-free cake mix for these and get ready to be wowed just the same. Plus, if you want to bake ahead of time, these freeze beautifully. 

So get ready to add this recipe to your cookie tray this Holiday season, but of course don’t forget some of my other favorites like Eggnog Sugar CookiesGingerbread Cookies and Soft and Sweet Molasses Roll Out Cookies

  1. Do you think that any cake mix flavor could be used, I was thinking of a devil’s food cake version!!!

  2. For some reason we have many boxes of white cupcake mix (Georgetown Cupcakes). Do you think I can use this in lieu of “cake” mix?
