I’ve spent the last few days surrounded by entirely too many cookies. It’s funny, I feel like I have a limitless sweet tooth, but when I get to the point that eating another cookie sounds disgusting, I know I probably passed my limit. Well, it’s been a weekend of holiday parties and more than a few delicious sweets have been showing up.
I’ve also been spending my fair share of time in the kitchen in the last week, whipping up a variety of tasty treats that in no way could be considered healthy but hey—can’t desserts be sacred?
Anyways, I wanted to share a VERY EASY recipe on the blog:
Funfetti Cake Cookies
- 1 box Funfetti cake mix
- 2 eggs
- 1/3 cup oil (could do a healthier substitution if you want to, but the liquid is important for mixing)
- Mix. Roll into balls. Flatten. Bake at 375 until edges are golden brown, around 9 minutes. Frost with buttercream frosting and gold sprinkles (or really any color of sprinkle…)
I love funfetti and kind of want my wedding cake to be made from it. I know I can be a food snob at times, but honestly, I would probably choose a Funfetti cake over some delectable, gourmet, ridiculously expensive chocolate cake any day. Call me crazy but there’s something about Funfetti that just grabs me and pulls me in. I’m all for desserts made with unprocessed ingredients and completely from scratch but sometimes happiness really does come from a box.
This simple recipe can be adopted with most any cake mix, or you can also experiment with add-ins, like my red vevet cookies w/ white chocolate and almond. Yum.
Funny piece of blog history: my 24th birthday (In Africa), I received a package from my family that SAME DAY (impressive considering it takes about a month to get packages) with a box of funfetti cake mix in it. I made it and ate that for dinner. Ironically that post and its title (regarding eating cake for dinner) is one of my most viewed posts, as apparently there are a lot of people out there googling “Can I eat cake for dinner on my birthday?” and my personal favorite, “How many calories are there in eating all the leftover icing?” Girl after my own heart.
Hope you all had a great weekend!
Do you like funfetti? Or any dessert mixes? Or do you stick with the real thing?
