How to Make Cake Mix Cookies
To make your own cake mix cookies you’ll need a box of cake mix, eggs and oil. This is pretty standard across the board and you can make just about any flavor of cookie you’d like, depending on which flavor cake mix you choose. Mix-ins are optional, but fun… so for a chocolate cake mix cookie, chocolate chips would be a perfect addition.
Since these are funfetti cake mix cookies I amped up the funfetti aspect by adding in even more sprinkles. The cake mix already has sprinkles in it, but go big or go home, right? I wanted these cookies to look like a party on a plate and be as colorful as possible.
I also added vanilla extract because it adds a nice flavor, but you can feel free to skip it if you don’t have any on hand.

- 15 oz. Box Funfetti Cake Mix
- 2 Eggs
- ⅓ cup Canola Oil
- 1 tbsp. Vanilla Extract

Spray hands with nonstick spray. Roll dough into balls and place on a cookie sheet at least 1" apart to allow the cookies room to expand.
Top each dough ball with additional sprinkles and gently pat sprinkles into tops of cookies before baking.
Bake for 10 to 11 minutes. Cookies will be a bit soft to handle, but they’ll firm up a bit as they cool. Bottoms should be lightly golden. Let cool before enjoying.
