Funfetti Chocolate-Chip Cookies

Man, these last few weeks have been super busy for Ryan and I- swim lessons for a friend's daughter, Super Summer Kids Week, Family Fun at the Beach, and cook-outs to name a few of the events filling our days and nights! Tonight is going to be the first night in over 10 days that we will be sitting down to a home-cooked meal (Spaghetti and Meatballs- YES)! 

After a swim lesson last week, I hosted my friends Candice and Rachel along with their children for lunch! Candice offered to supply the main course for lunch, but I wanted to make a fun dessert that the littles could help make! So, the night before I whipped up a batch of chocolate chip cookies with a twist! The cookies turned out great and I the kids definitely had a blast scooping the dough onto cookie sheets....and eating them shortly after! Win! 

  • 1 cup Butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup Dark Brown Sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 tsp Vanilla
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 1/2 cups Funfetti Cake Mix
  • 1 1/2 cups Flour
  • 1/2 cups Sprinkles
  • 2 cups Chocolate Chips
  • 2 cups coarsely chopped Golden Birthday Cake Oreos 
1. In a mixer, cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add in eggs and vanilla and beat until smooth. 
2. With the mixer on low, add in baking soda, salt, flour, and cake mix, stirring until the mixture comes together. 
3. Add in sprinkles, chocolate chips, and chopped oreos. Stir until evenly incorporated. 
4. Chill dough in the refrigerator over night. (If you can stand to wait that long!) 
5. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Roll dough into balls, placing them onto a cookie sheet. 
6. Bake cookies for 8-10 minutes. Cool and enjoy!
