Easiest Funfetti Cookies

We love to make all different kinds of cake mix cookies. They’re one of the easiest cookies to make and have an amazing soft texture. This funfetti version was an instant winner in my house and tastes so buttery and delicious.

These funfetti cookies are one of my kid’s all time favorite cookies! I prefer homemade sugar cookies, but they would pick these first. Which is fine by me, because they are super easy to make. All you need are 3 simple pantry staples to get started. They are honestly pretty hard to mess up too, which makes them the perfect cookies for your kids to make on their own.

The end result is a soft, chewy, buttery cookie with the classic cake batter flavor. My kids love to add rainbow jimmies in the dough to add a pop of color. They are so simple and perfect for any celebration!

3 simple ingredients

You only need a box of funfetti cake mix, oil and eggs to make this recipe. Seriously, these are the easiest cookies ever!

  • Box of funfetti cake mix
  • Vegetable or canola oil
  • Eggs

Decorations

You don’t need to add sprinkles, but of course my kids always love to add some extra in the dough. You can also roll the dough in sprinkles like below to add more color. I prefer them plain without the extra sprinkles on top, but the pop of color sure does make them pretty :)

If you’re making these cookies around the holidays, you can absolutely use holiday sprinkles instead of rainbow jimmies. It would be fun to make a Christmas or Valentine’s Day version.

How to make funfetti cake mix cookies

MIX. Mix the ingredients together in a large bowl with an electric mixer. Fold in the sprinkles if desired. Then chill the dough in the fridge for 15 to 20 minutes, so that it’s easier to work with.

SCOOP. Use a medium cookie scoop or spoon to scoop the dough into balls. Roll in extra sprinkles if desired. Then place on a parchment lined baking sheet.

BAKE. Bake at 350°F for 8 to 10 minutes in the oven. You want the cookies to be set, but not brown. Let cool on the pan for a few minutes, then move to a cooling rack to cool completely.

Freezing tips

These cookies can easily be frozen if you have extras. Let them cool completely, then freeze on a baking sheet for about 30 minutes. Once they are hard to touch, add to a freezer container or bag and store in the freezer for up to 3 months.

To thaw, remove from freezer and let sit at room temperature for 2 hours before serving.
