Ingredients for cake mix Funfetti cookies.
  • 1 (15.25 ounce) box of Funfetti cake mix – Any box of cake mix with rainbow sprinkles will do. 
  • 1/3 oil – Vegetable oil or canola oil works best to keep your cookies moist without negatively affecting their flavor.
  • 2 eggs – These hold the cookies together and add rich flavor.
  • Sprinkles – Include as much or as little as you like! Use festive varieties for holidays and special occasions.


  • Choose a different flavor of cake mix like strawberry cake mix, vanilla cake mix, or chocolate cake mix. This opens up the door for so many other delicious desserts!
  • Leave out the sprinkles (rainbow jimmies), and replace them with frosting like cream cheese frosting for the topping. 
  • Fold in white chocolate chips for little morsels of chocolatey goodness in every bite.
  • Add chopped nuts like walnuts or pecans to the cookie dough.
  • Add a drizzle of milk chocolate, white chocolate, or white chocolate over the cookies after they bake. Then, allow the chocolate to cool and set before serving.

Directions for How to Make Easy Funfetti Cake Mix Cookies

  1. Prepare: Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line baking sheets with parchment paper, and set them aside.
  2. Combine the wet and dry ingredients: Add the cake mix, oil, and eggs to a large bowl. Mix until smooth and fluffy.
  3. Chill the dough: Transfer the bowl to the fridge, and chill the cookie dough for 15 to 30 minutes. This makes it easier to shape your cookies!
  4. Portion: Use a medium cookie scoop to portion the dough. Roll each cookie dough ball in sprinkles.
  5. Bake: Transfer the cookies to the oven. Bake for eight to ten minutes or until the edges are lightly brown. Be careful not to overbake!
  6. Cool: Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for five minutes. Then, transfer them to a cooling rack to cool completely.

How to Store + Freeze Funfetti Cake Mix Cookies

  • Store cooled cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to four days.
  • Freeze leftover cookies for up to two months. To do so, place them on a baking sheet, and freeze until solid. Then, transfer them to a sealable bag, and store your cookies in the freezer.
  • Thaw frozen cookies in the fridge overnight. Or, leave them out at room temperature for a few hours, and enjoy!

Quick Tip

Add frosting! While your cookies cool, whip up a batch of cream cheese frosting with cream cheese, unsalted butter, and sugar. Or, grab your favorite store-bought option. Then, frost your cookies to make them extra sweet.


Can I use any flavor of cake mix?

Yes! You absolutely can pick up any flavor of cake mix to make these cookies. The recipe does not change at all, but the flavor will depend on what flavor of cake mix you use. Try strawberry, carrot, or even German chocolate cake mix! 

How is Funfetti different from vanilla?

Funfetti cake mix is essentially white cake flavored with vanilla extract and studded with sprinkles. This gives it a fun festive appearance and a slightly sweeter taste.

Why did my cookies fall apart?

The most common reason for the cookies falling apart is overbaking. Be sure to keep a close eye on your oven! The cookies will continue to bake and set as they cool. So, be sure to remove them from the oven as soon as the edges are lightly golden.
