These are the BEST birthday cookies ever! Seriously, if you’re celebrating someones first birthday or their 100th, these are the perfect cookie treat! I love me some cake but you can’t beat that birthday cake taste in cookie form 🙂 Serve these alongside a cake and you’ve got the best of both worlds! Oh, AND you can even go to Cold Stone Creamery and get some Birthday Cake ice cream and then you’re REALLY set!
So, go get those sprinkles and let’s bake some cookies…
What you will need:
Cookie sheet lined with parchment paper
1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/4 cup vanilla boxed cake mix
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup unsalted butter at room temp
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
1/2 cup sprinkles
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, cake mix and baking soda. Set aside. In another large bowl, or bowl of your electric mixer, beat butter and both sugars until creamy. Add egg and vanilla and beat until well incorporated. Slowly beat in flour mixture. Stir in both chocolate chips and then the sprinkles.
Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate the dough for 1-2 hours.
Preheat oven to 350 F. Place chilled cookie dough by rounded tablespoons onto prepared cookie sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Allow to cool on cookie sheet before transferring to a wire rack. Tip: Before transferring to a wire rack, I added a few more chocolate chips to the tops of each cookie to give them some more oomph 🙂
Enjoy! And Happy Birthday to everyone celebrating!
