If you stop by my blog, you will learn that I love absolutely anything related to cake batter. It is my weakness, so when I found this recipe, I was beyond excited!.

What You'll Need:

1 box of yellow cake mix
1 teaspoon of baking powder
2 large eggs
1/3 cup of vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 cup of holiday sprinkles, or as desired (depending on how much of a sprinkle lover you are!)

Alright, is your mouth watering yet? Let's get started!

What You'll Need To Do:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees

Line two cookie sheets with wax paper

Using a large mixing bowl, mix together cake mix and baking powder

Using another mixing bowl, mix together eggs, vegetable oil and vanilla extract

Add the egg mixture to cake mixture and beat with mixer or stir by hand until fully mixed

Stir in sprinkles, slowly * be careful not to add all sprinkles in at once, add too many sprinkles, or overstir because you may dye the dough

Using a cookie scoop or spoon, form 1 inch rounded dough balls and place onto prepared cookie sheet *allow cookie dough loving husband/boyfriend/fiance/friend to scrape remainders from mixing bowl

Add additional sprinkles to top of dough if desired ;)

Bake for 9 minutes *cookies will be very soft initially, use toothpick method to ensure fully baked

Allow cookies to cool for approximately 5 minutes on cookie sheet before transferring over to wire cooling rack to cool completely
