I made Funfetti Cake Mix Cookies for the sole purpose of welcoming a nice spring-like day, and for my readers that need an Eater-themed dessert.

Yet truthfully, it’s a cookie that can totally be made at any point in time and for any occasion.

Even if it’s simply celebrating the fact that it’s Friday.

Funfetti Cake Mix Cookies is one of my all-time favourite cookie recipes ever, I just love the spring 'Eastery' look and the moist cake-like taste - and it's easy because you use a boxed cake mix. This is one amazing cookie, guys, and there's video instructions!


  • 1 box Confetti Cake Mix
  • 1/3 Cup Oil
  • 2 Eggs
  • 3-4 tbps Sprinkles {of choosing}
  • 1 - 1/3 cup M&Ms


  1. Preheat oven at 350º F.
  2. In a large bowl, add dry cake mix, oil and eggs.
  3. Stir with a spoon until combined.
  4. Add the sprinkles to the cake batter and gently mix.
  5. Add M&M's and gently mix.
  6. Shape dough into 1″ balls and place them about 2″ apart on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.
  7. If you have more M&M's, stick a few in the top of the balls if you so wish - the more the merrier!
  8. Bake for 6 to 7 minutes, but make sure you don't overcook so they don't dry out. I take them out just when I see an edge starting to brown.
  9. Enjoy!

  1. oh these look fun to make… girl is standing behind me wanting to make them now 🙂

  2. These cookies look so perfect for Easter and I bet they are moist and delicious.I am so glad
    I found this lovely recipe that you posted for us.My family will love them!! 🙂

  3. Might have fixed it. I made them bigger and baked them longer – 11 minutes.
    Either way, I love the idea. I will be taking the to work tomorrow as its my last day before the holiday. Might just play around with it in the future to make it my own. Thanks for the recipe!

  4. The batter seemed super dry before I was to add in the M&Ms so I did add a touch more coconut oil (this is what I always use when baking cookies and cakes) and then it seemed too oily. Very stiff batter, though. The cookies did not spread out much and took a lot longer than 7 minutes to cook. I eventually patted them flatter with a spatula and had to lift them up to see if the bottom was browning to tell when they were done. It’s possible that I may have baked them a little too long, but I didn’t see any browning along the edges as all. I was able to make 24 cookies out of the one box mix. They are cute and not bad, but I am just not a huge fan of cake mix cookies. I’m sure my co-workers will love them tomorrow, though!

  5. Hi my cake mix is similar but it calls for 3 eggs should I do 3 or the 2 you suggested thank you

    1. If yours says 3, I’d first try three. I don’t think the extra would make a difference, but it could if it’s needed for that particular mix. 🙂

  6. Easy and simple technique. I am afraid of baking cookies as they never turn good. I hope these will do. Lemme try and get back to you.
