Funfetti Cake Mix Cookies

Is there anything happier than FUNFETTI? I could probably eat anything if it was funfetti flavored. Well, maybe not eggplant… 😉 There is just something about rainbow colored sprinkles that make the world a better place.

The best part about these funfetti cookies? They are made with a CAKE MIX. Yes, please! So so easy and quick. This recipe is perfect for little bakers who want to help you in the kitchen. They’ll love all the bright colored sprinkles and frosting the cookies.

Deliver a batch of these goodies to a friend on their birthday—they will love you forever! You could even make these funfetti cookies in lieu of a birthday cake. Sometimes I just want cookies for no particular reason so these are the perfect “anytime” treat. You deserve it. You’re welcome.

How to make Funfetti Cake Cookies

PREP. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.

COMBINE. Mix all the cookie ingredients together in a bowl.

BAKE. Shape the cookie dough into 1 inch balls and put them onto your ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 6-8 minutes or just until they are browned on the edges.

Note. Do not over bake these! The softer they are, the better! 😉 Let the cookies cool for a bit then frost them and top them with more sprinkles! You can never have too many sprinkles in my cookie opinion. If you don’t eat them all right then and there, you can keep them in an airtight container for a few days.

Homemade Frosting Options:


  • Add white chocolate chips
  • Try sticking with jimmies for the best texture and taste
  • If you’re making these around a certain holiday use holiday sprinkles for some extra fun!

Tips + Storing Info

To make these cookies soft and moist…

  • Make sure to take them out of the oven right as the edges turn golden brown, not any later.
  • Keep the cookies in an airtight container to keep them as soft as possible. You could also keep the cookies in a container with a piece of white sandwich bread. If you use this technique the bread will dry out before the cookies do.
  • Chilling the dough for 15-20 minutes can prevent the cookies from spreading out and losing some of their moisture in the baking process.

STORE these cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week.

FREEZE cookies in an airtight container for up to 3 months. You can store your cookie dough in the fridge in a covered container for up to 5 days, just make sure that there is an airtight seal on the container so that the dough doesn’t dry out.
