Easy Funfetti Cookies from a Cake Mix


  • 1 box of white cake mix
  • 1/2 cup of softened butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 container of sprinkles (feel free to let your sprinkle-love guide you)
  • Your choice of frosting (store-bought or homemade)
  • Food coloring to jazz up the frosting


  1. Heat Things Up: Preheat your oven to a cozy 350 degrees.

  2. Mix It Up: Grab a bowl and combine your cake mix, softened butter, and egg. Mix it all together until it’s nice and smooth.

  3. Sprinkle Time: Now, the star of the show - the sprinkles. Pour in about 1/3 to 1/2 of your container. You want these cookies to be speckled with joy, so don’t be shy.

  4. Shape It: Roll the dough into 1-inch balls. Give them a gentle press to start flattening them out a bit. Place them on your baking sheet, ready for the oven.

  5. Bake 'n' Cool: Slide them into the oven for 8-10 minutes. Once they're golden and gorgeous, let them cool off a bit.

  6. Frosting Fun: While those cool, take out your frosting. Add a few drops of food coloring to make it pop. Stir it up until you’ve got a color that makes you smile.

  7. Pipe It Pretty: Scoop your vibrant frosting into a plastic bag, snip off a corner, and pipe a generous swirl onto half of your cookies.

  8. Sandwich Time: Top them with the remaining cookies, gently press them together, and voila! Funfetti cookie sandwiches that are as fun to make as they are to eat.

There you have it— a cookie so fun, so tasty, and so easy, it almost feels like cheating. Enjoy the baking, enjoy the eating, and definitely enjoy the smiles you’ll get when you share these little bursts of joy. Who needs a special occasion when you have confetti?
