Cake Batter Confetti Cookies!

Make every day a celebration!

I have been wanting to make a confetti cookie recipe for so long! I’m not usually into using cake batter in a recipe, but this was a quick and easy version and I am all about that right now. These cookies are so yummy on the first day you make them. I think these are perfect to serve at a party and they are also fun because if you choose a colored cake mix or add food coloring you can make them whatever color you want. Adding the sprinkles also makes them that much more fun and festive.

This recipe was really easy to make and I just love how they turned out with the sprinkles. I added some sprinkles on top as well as mixing the sprinkles into the batter. This cookie I felt doesn’t last very long with freshness. On day 3 or 4 they just weren’t tasting as good as they did on day 1. I highly recommend making these for a party or a gathering because they are so fun but also so they get eaten up right away. I plan to try another version of these that don;t use cake batter, because I loved how they turned out and looked with the sprinkles. I want to see if they will taste different and last longer then these did.


  • 1/2 cup Butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup Granulated Sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 3/4 cup Flour
  • 16oz Cake Batter Mix (I used a strawberry mix for a fun flavor and color twist)
  • 1/4 -1/2 cup Sprinkles of your choice (I used Sweetapolita sprinkles)
  • Extra sprinkles to roll the dough in


  1. Preheat the oven to 350
  2. Cream together the butter and sugar for about 1 minute
  3. Add the eggs and vanilla, mix until everything is combined
  4. Add the cake mix and flour. Mix until all ingredients are combined
  5. Stir in the sprinkles
  6. Scoop the dough into balls on a cookie sheet
  7. Take the dough balls and dip them into extra sprinkles (optional)
  8. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes
  9. Allow to cool for a few minutes before putting them on a wire rack

These cookies were so fun and they are so gorgeous! Anything with sprinkles I feel turns out looking so magical. Sweetapolita has the cutest sprinkles, I love buying them and they just look so good on everything! I hope you enjoy these and if you have a great funfetti recipe I’d love to hear it!
