Funfetti Cake Batter Cookies

I’m sure you can guess by looking at these Funfetti Cake Batter Cookies how long I have waited to share them with you.  Yes, those are Christmas sprinkles!

But I do think that these Funfetti Cake Batter Cookies would be absolutely adorable with pastel sprinkles for springtime!  These Funfetti Cake Batter Cookies are made using yellow cakes mix so that they have a familiar buttery cake flavor but have a crispy edge like a good cookie.  And of course there are some chocolate chips mixed in for a little extra something special.

I would love to make another batch of these with pastel sprinkles and white chocolate chips, wrap them in spring cellophane bags tied with colorful ribbon and deliver them to friends as an official welcome to spring!
