Funfetti Cake Mix Cookies

These fun and festive Funfetti Cake Mix Cookies are super easy to make with just 5 ingredients! Perfect for any occasion or holiday!


Here we go with ANOTHER cake mix “cake batter” inspired recipe. If you don’t like cake mix, or the cake batter flavor you probably hate me at this point. So sorry! But for those that love cake mix recipes, you’re welcome! I hope you’re enjoying all these yummy recipes! The funny thing about blogging is in a few weeks from now it doesn’t really matter when it was posted. They all are just part of the collection, right? But if you get my email updates, I promise we’ll get back to more variety soon! And I’m excited about a project I’m working on for August with lots of fun and easy back to school breakfasts so stay tuned!

Again the reason for all these cake mix recipes these last few days is I’m celebrating my kiddos 9th birthday! I still can’t believe my babies are 9! So I’m breaking out the sprinkles to celebrate them with fun and festive birthday treats!


What I love about these, and the others that I have shared this week including the No Bake Cake Batter Cheesecake, the Cake Batter Pancakes AND the 3 Ingredient Donuts is that they are perfect for not only birthdays, but think holidays too. Black, brown and orange for Halloween, Thanksgiving and Fall; Red and Green for Christmas; Red and Pink for Valentines; Pastel for Easter; Green for St. Patrick’s Day, you get my drift! Fun, right? So next time you’re at the grocery store and you see a box of Funfetti Cake Mix, think of all the possibilities aside from cake you can make with it!

These Funfetti Cake Mix Cookies are super soft and buttery, and yes they taste like a cookie with the flavor of cake batter! Not only are they delish but they’re super easy to make with just 5 ingredients! With just 1 bowl, a couple baking sheets and 5 ingredients you can whip up these babies in no time!

  1. The batter was too runny to form shapes. I added about a cup of flour to bind it enough to put on the baking sheet. They taste ok.
