  • 1 (15.25 ounce) box funfetti cake mix
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil (e.g. canola)
  • 2 eggs
  • Rainbow sprinkles (optional)


  1. Add the funfetti cake mix, vegetable oil, eggs, and rainbow sprinkles (if using extra ones) to a large mixing bowl. Using an electric hand mixer, mix until combined.
  2. Chill for 30 minutes. I recommend this step since the dough is sticky and you will also get slightly puffier cookies with chilling, but you don't have to chill them. I didn't chill the cookies in the photos for the full 30 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, preheat your oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat non-stick mat.
  4. Make 2" balls and place them on the baking sheet at least 2" apart, if not more since they do spread. Bake for 11-13 minutes until they're set.
  5. Let them cool for a few minutes on the baking sheet, then transfer to a cooling rack. Once cooled, store cookies in an airtight container. 
  6. Want to frost them? Here's the recipe for my funfetti frosting. 

Recipe Notes

  • I made fairly large cookies (rolled dough into 2" balls), so if you make them smaller, you can definitely make more than 12. 
  • You can use the larger-sized boxes of cake mix (18.25 ounces) as well - it'll make about 16 2" cookies (keep everything else in the recipe the same). The batter will be less sticky and the cookies will be more puffy - especially if you chill the dough.
