These Cake Batter Chocolate Chip Cookies are a cross between delicious, soft-baked chocolate chip cookies and sprinkle filled funfetti cake
Here is one of my most popular recipes ever. I made these sprinkle-loaded cookies again recently, but I made them bigger, better, and thicker. Gorgeous, aren’t they? Delicious too!
I’m posting my Cake Batter Chocolate Chip Cookies for you today because (1) I know how much you love cake batter and (2) I tweaked the recipe to make them even better this time around.
Cake Batter Chocolate Chip Cookies
- 1 and 1/4 cup (160g) all-purpose flour (spoon & leveled)
- 1 and 1/4 cup (190g) yellow or vanilla boxed cake mix (I typically use vanilla cake mix – you just need the DRY mix)1
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt2
- 3/4 cup (1.5 sticks or 170g) unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
- 1/2 cup (100g) granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup (100g) packed light brown sugar
- 1 egg, at room temperature
- 1 and 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 cup (180g) chocolate chips (I used 1/2 cup of white and 1/2 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips)
- 1/2 cup (80g) sprinkles
- In a large bowl, sift together flour, cake mix, and baking soda. Set aside.
- Using a hand mixer or a stand mixer fitted with paddle attachment, cream the softened butter and both sugars together on medium speed until smooth. Add the egg and mix on high until combined, about 1 minute. Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl as needed. Add the vanilla and beat on high until combined. Add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients and mix on low-medium speed until just combined. Add the chocolate chips and sprinkles. Mix on low until the add-ins are evenly disbursed.
- Cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate dough for at least 2 hours, or up to 3-4 days. This step is mandatory. The dough is fairly sticky, so chilling the dough is required in order to avoid the cookies from spreading too much. If you chill longer than 2 hours, make sure you roll the cookie dough into balls after the 2 hour mark. Place dough balls on a plate, cover tightly, and store in the refrigerator until ready to bake. You may also freeze the balls at this point for up to 3 months. (Then bake as directed adding 1 minute to the bake time without thawing.)
