Cake Batter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yes….. You read the title of the cookies correctly…. Cake Batter Chocolate Chip Cookies! I did find this recipe on Pinterest and my jaw fell to the ground immediately. After making these with a friend and her kids…. I new these would be a favorite! Not just for adults but for kids as well. The kids love pouring in the Colored sprinkles and making these cookies into balls for baking. It is a great recipe for the kids to help out with and they really help out with eating them too! I hope you enjoy these delicious cookies!!!


Here’s what you’ll need…..

1 and 1/4 cup all-purpose flour

1 and 1/4 cup yellow or white boxed cake mix

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

3/4 cup (1.5 sticks) unsalted butter, softened to room temperature

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup light brown sugar

1 egg, at room temperature

1.5 teaspoons vanilla

1 cup chocolate chips (I used a blend of white and semi-sweet chocolate chips)

1/2 cup sprinkles

(Makes 2.5 – 3 dozen cookies)


Alright…. lets start to make these incredible cookies… shall we??? In a large bowl, sift together flour, cake mix, and baking soda.

Set aside. In a separate bowl, cream together the butter and sugars on medium speed. Mix in the egg and vanilla until creamy.


Add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients and mix until just combined. Do not OVERMIX the dough.


Fold in the chocolate chips and sprinkles. (Let the kiddos poor them in)

Cover and refrigerate dough for at least 1 hour, or up to 4 days. This step is mandatory. The dough is fairly sticky, so chilling the dough is required in order to avoid the cookie from spreading too much.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Scoop rounded tablespoons of the cold dough onto an ungreased baking sheet. Shape your cookie dough balls to be “taller” than they are wide, as pictured above. Make sure to keep dough chilled when working in batches. Bake for 10-12 minutes until edges are slightly browned.


The centers will still appear very soft, but the cookies will set as they cool.

Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 4 minutes and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Eat, Taste, and Enjoy!!!
