Good Monday morning!
Monday is always that day that I refuse to admit is going to arrive. I love the weekend. Like a lot.
Thankfully, this weekend was able to end with some football and good food! And, don’t let me forget some great commercials.
I think that my favorite commercial was the M&M commercial where the red M&M was singing Meatloaf’s “I Would Do Anything for Love (But I Won’t Do That)”. It was seriously hilarious!
As I was getting our football spread ready, I knew I needed to make something yummy for the girls for dessert! I’ve been seeing recipes all over Pinterest for cake batter cookies, so I decided to give it a try.
These cookies did not disappoint and my five year old declared that they taste like a cupccake!
Cupcake Cookies (adapted from here)
-1 box vanilla cake mix
-1.5 teaspoons baking powder
-1/2 teaspoon vanilla
-1/2 cup vegetable oil
-1 cup sprinkles
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
In a bowl, mix cake mix and baking powder. Add eggs, vanilla, and oil. Mix well. Then, add in the sprinkles. Mix.
Using a cookie scoop or tablespoon, drop cookie dough onto a parchment lined or greased cookie sheet.
Bake for 10 minutes. Cookies will be soft. Allow them to rest for 5 minutes on the cookie sheet before transferring them to a wire rack for cooling.
Allow them to cool and enjoy!
My five year old is completely right…they taste like a cupcake in cookie form!
I’ll also be making cookies from cake mixes again…I never thought that this would work. It did. And they were so stinkin’ good!
