Cake Mix Cookies - 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.
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.
- yellow cake mix
- unsalted butter
- chocolate chips
- Combine all ingredients in a bowl.
- Cover the bowl with saran wrap and chill for 30 minutes.
- Scoop dough onto a baking sheet.
- Bake for 10 to 12 minutes.
- Cool on pan for a few minutes, then transfer onto a cooling rack.
Can I freeze the dough?
Yes! Instead of chilling the dough in a bowl, scoop it into balls and freeze on a baking sheet. Then place in a freezer-safe bag and freeze for up to 6 months.
Butter instead of oil:
I prefer to make these cookies with butter instead of oil, as I would with any cookie recipe. They taste better and have better texture.
