Funfetti Sprinkle Cookies

I stumbled upon this recipe.  Really.  I have no idea what I might have been searching for that led me to a recipe called “Sprinkle Crinkle Cookies”, but when I got there, I saw that they are cookies made with Funfetti cake mix.  Funfetti cake mix….memories of when Ally was little and every birthday all she wanted was a Funfetti birthday cake.  I mean, really…I can make her any kind of cake and she wants Funfetti.  Okay.  Fine.  So we had a few years of Funfetti cakes and cupcakes.

Well, the timing was perfect.  Ally was going to be home for a visit later that week and I thought it would be fun to make a batch for her.  They are beyond easy (the blogger who shared the recipe even says that they are so easy that it’s almost embarrassing to even call it a recipe)!  Nevertheless, they taste just like Funfetti cake, but in cookie form and with a few more sprinkles.

Ally liked them.  I sorta like them.  My coworkers loved them…when I took some to work to share, I couldn’t believe how many people, when I told them what they were said, “Funfetti?!?!?  I love Funfetti!”  One person even asked for the recipe and made some that showed up back at work the following week.

Funfetti Sprinkle Cookies

adapted slightly from

(Makes about 18 cookies)


1 box Funfetti cake mix

1/2 cup vegetable oil

2 eggs

1/3 cup powdered sugar

1/3 cup multi-colored sprinkles


Preheat oven to 350°.

Place sprinkles and powdered sugar in two separate bowls.  Set aside.

In a large bowl combine cake mix, vegetable oil, and eggs and mix well to combine.  Cover and chill dough about 15 minutes.  Use a tablespoon to scoop dough and roll into balls.  Roll dough balls in sprinkles to coat all sides, then in the powdered sugar.

Set cookie dough balls about 2-3 inches apart on a large baking sheet.  Bake 10-12 minutes.  Cookies will still be a little gooey.  Allow to cool completely before using a metal spatula to remove cookies from sheet.  Store in airtight container.
