Whether you need a super simple cookie recipe for a school treat, a bake sale or just because, these sprinkle cake cookies are always a hit. I’m almost ashamed to admit how easy they are to make, but who says the best things in life have to be difficult?!
Sprinkle Cake Cookies are also a great for beginning bakers. My three girls are all interested in baking these days and frequently want to make a treat after school or on the weekend. Since these sprinkle cake cookies only require a few ingredients and the mess is fairly controlled, it’s something I feel good about letting the girls make with no assistance from me….SCORE!!!
Of course, my girls wanted to use a pink cake mix and purple princess sprinkles. Nothing like pink to make my girlies happy and they were perfect for an afternoon princess tea party.
Even if your kids are a little younger and still need your help, these are fairly quick to make and a ton of fun, so it is a way to encourage their interest in learning to cook and bake without too much stress for moms. You can choose a different type of cake mix as well as the add-ins to personalize the cookies or to be consistent with a party theme.
Okay, so here is all you need for your Sprinkle Cake Cookies:
1 box of pink velvet cake mix (or a cake mix of your choice)
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup of a mix-in of your choice (sprinkles, choc. chips, candy, whatever..)
How to Make Sprinkle Cake Cookies:
Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Combine all the ingredients except the sprinkles or whatever other add-in you’ve chosen. Once the other ingredients are well mixed, then add in your sprinkles, choc. chips, etc. Drop the dough in large teaspoon full dollops onto a greased cookie sheet and bake for 8 to 10 minutes.
These are so good and no one needs to know they’re made from a box mix! It will be our little secret.
