Birthday Cake Mix Cookies recipe – each cookie tastes like a slice of cake and white chocolate chips taste like vanilla frosting! You will love these cake mix cookies made with butter instead of oil.
When you are craving a birthday cake and would love a slice of it right now but now way how you are going into all the trouble of baking layers and making a frosting from scratch – these cookies are for you!
I’ve seen cake mix cookies ideas floating around the internets (thanks, Pinterest!) and always wondered how they taste. The idea of using oil in a cookie dough just never sounded good to me. So I decided to try the cake mix recipe but with melted butter in place of oil. You guys!! These are CRAZY DELICIOUS! The yellow cake mix gives them a vanilla cake flavor, the sprinkles add pizzazz and make them festive and the white chocolate tastes like sweet and creamy vanilla frosting! It’s such an easy treat for celebrating little wins or sweet moments.
I have to admit, I am quite surprised how much I love these! They are buttery and sweet and the combo of yellow cake and white chocolate totally makes them taste like a birthday cake! You HAVE to try these!
I haven’t used a cake mix in years and while there is nothing wrong with using it – I have my favorite recipes for cakes that my family and I love. Besides,for me to bake a whole big layer cake these days is rare. Happens only for our birthdays. These cookies are the perfect answer! You can also whip them up for parties and get-togethers. My kids love to make them with me! I also love this recipe from Cinnamon Rolls made with cake mix! If you want to stick to homemade, you can try this recipe for a Homemade Yellow Cake Mix.

- 1 box yellow cake mix
- 2 large eggs
- 1/3 cup butter melted and cooled
- 1/4 cup sprinkles
- 1 and 1/4 cup white chocolate chips
In a large mixing bowl, mix cake mix, eggs and butter with an electric mixer until well combined. Cover with saran wrap and chill for at least 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Scoop dough with a medium cookie scoop (1 and 1/2 tablespoon size) and place 2" apart on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.
Bake cookies for 10 to 12 minutes (11 minutes was the magic number for me). Cool on baking sheet for 2 minutes, then transfer onto a cooling rack.
Store in air-tight container with a piece of bread to prevent drying out.
If chilled overnight, the cookies won't spread as much and will be thicker.
