Cake Batter Funfetti Cookies

These were a fun cookie to make.

My daughter's 8th birthday was not too long ago and of course we had a party. I didn't just want there to be cake and ice cream, ya know, the usual party stuff, I wanted something else fun that everyone would enjoy.

I ended up having some extra cake mix left over from something… I have NO clue what or how I would have extra cake mix, but I did. Weird. So I went to Pinterest to find a recipe that used cake mix in the batter of the cookie.

I found a recipe but it called for chocolate chips instead. I didn't want a chocolate chip cookie so to make them a little more whimsical and match the sprinkle cake I swapped the chocolate chips for sprinkles.

You could totally add chocolate chips though, or whatever you want.

These cookies turned out fantastic, were moist and chewy, tasted just like cake batter, and were one of the first things to be eaten by everyone at the party.

They are also super simple to make.
