I love cake batter. Cake batter ice cream. Cake batter shakes. Cake batter cookies. Cake flavored anything.
But what’s better than a cookie that tastes like cake? A cookie that tastes like cake and has sprinkles! It’s like a slice of birthday cake on the go. And yes, they taste just as delicious as they look. Sprinkles make everything taste better. Just don’t forget to make enough to share.
Chocolate Rainbow Cookies
1 and 1/4 cup flour
1 and 1/4 cup yellow or vanilla cake mix (I used the yellow cake mix)
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 and 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup chocolate chips (I used semi-sweet chocolate chips)
1/2 cup sprinkles
Sift flour, cake mix, and baking soda together in a bowl.
In a mixer, combine the butter and both sugars together. Add egg and mix on high until combined, around 1 minute, scraping down the sides of the bowl to mix all ingredients thoroughly. Add vanilla extract.
Turn the mixer on low-medium speed and slowly pour in the flour mixture. Add the chocolate chips and sprinkles, mixing on low, until sprinkles and chocolate are evenly distributed.
Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Chilling the dough will make it easier to roll into balls before baking.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and take out your dough. Line your cookies sheets with wax paper.
Scoop out about 1 and 1/2 tablespoons of cookie dough and roll into balls. Shape your cookies to be “taller” than they are wide.
Bake for 10-12 minutes, until the edges of the cookies are lightly browned. The centers will look soft, but the cookies set as they cool.
Yields around 2 – 2 and 1/2 dozen cookies.
Now go taste the rainbow.
