These Perfect Party Cookies start with a box cake mix and are full of chocolate chips and colorful sprinkles. These super easy soft cookies are awesome with a glass of milk for an after school snack or a late night treat. A perfect addition to a dessert buffet.
I made these festive party cookies for a birthday party and they got rave reviews. I love an excuse to add sprinkles to anything and these soft cookies let you use whichever kind you like.
Red and green for Christmas, orange and black for Halloween, pink and red for Valentine’s. Mix it up.
What’s a party without sprinkles?
Ingredients needed for this Party Cookies Recipe
Below is a list of ingredients you’ll need to help you prep. Scroll all the way down for the full recipe card.
Flour – all purpose white flour
Cake Mix – you’ll need one cup of yellow cake mix (though you could experiment with other flavors)
Butter – melted and slightly cooled. This is important so you don’t scramble your eggs with hot butter.
Eggs – One egg and one egg yolk.
Vanilla – Pure vanilla extract.
Sugars – Granulated white sugar and brown sugar.
Chocolate Chips – I like to use Ghirardelli baking chips.
Sprinkles – Any colorful sprinkles will work. I used rainbow non pareils here.
Equipment you’ll need to help you make these cookies
- Silicone Baking Mats or I’ve been reaching for parchment paper lately
- Medium Cookie Scoop
Normally, I enjoy cookies straight out of the oven. These perfect party cookies I preferred cool.
What should I do with the rest of the cake mix?
Because this recipe only calls for 1 cup of yellow cake mix, you’ll need to use up the rest. Maybe a Cake Batter Cheese Ball? Or Cake Batter Muddy Buddies? Funfetti Krispy Treats?
