Cake Batter Cookies

The starlet of these awesome cookies. Who doesn’t like sprinkles. Don’t answer that.

Cake batter was the craze when Cold Stone Creamery came out with the beloved flavor and for some delicious reason it just has never just been a 1 season trend, rather its a life movement and should never fall by the waste side. Some other cake batter recipes to grace my blog:

and one I made last week that I still need to blog – the infamous Cake Batter Ice Cream. Dreamland.

Now if you know how to make chocolate chip cookies then you are well on your way to making these colorful delights.

Recipe: Straight up from Key Ingredient –> Be sure to check out the original – she took a different approach in the chocolate chip addition (:

Cake Batter Cookies

1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/4 cup yellow boxed cake mix
1/2 tsp. baking soda
3/4 cup (1.5 sticks) unsalted butter, room temp.
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 egg, room temp
1 cup mini chocolate chips
1/2 cup sprinkles (I was a little shy on this – I just used one normal size sprinkle container from the store)

In a large bowl, sift together flour, cake mix, and baking soda. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, cream together the butter and sugars on medium speed. Mix in the egg and vanilla until creamy.
Add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients and mix until just combined. Do not OVERMIX the dough.
Fold in the chocolate chips and sprinkles.
Cover and refrigerate dough for at least 1 hour, or up to 4 days. This step is mandatory. The dough is fairly sticky, so chilling the dough is required in order to avoid the cookie from spreading too much.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Scoop rounded tablespoons of the cold dough onto an ungreased baking sheet. Make sure to keep dough chilled when working in batches. Bake for 11-13 minutes until edges are slightly browned (I baked a smaller cookie so baked for 10 min and they were perfect).
The centers will still appear very soft, but the cookies will set as they cool. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 4 minutes and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
