I have heard of the recipes where you doctor up cake mixes and make different cookies, but have never tried one. I saw this one and thought it looked really delicious so I decided to try it! I got the recipe from Mostly Homemade Mom and it really is simple. You can color coordinate these if you are having a birthday or a holiday! I just thought these big sprinkles were fun. They came out delicious!
1 box cake mix (I used yellow but she suggests using white)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup oil
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup sprinkles
In her recipe, she says to mix the dry ingredients in one bowl and the wet in another and then mix all together. I did not do this. I mixed all together at once; just dumping all ingredients in and then mixing. I have no idea if this effects the outcome or not. It tasted pretty darn good to me and Bubby! Roll tablespoons full of cookie dough into smooth balls and roll in sprinkles. Place on ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 6-8 minutes. I made mine a little larger so they took about 10 minutes. I don't follow directions well, do I?
