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.
PERFECT PARTY COOKIES
I made these festive 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?
Normally, I enjoy cookies straight out of the oven. These perfect party cookies I preferred cool.

Original notes from March 21, 2011:
Above is a picture of my first attempt at making these perfect party cookies. For the record, following directions is important and 1 CUP ≠ 1 BOX of cake mix. Oops. I tried to compensate by adding more water. They tasted decent, but they weren’t pretty.
