This is a super simple and yummy cookie recipe using a cake mix.  I think if you don’t have a cake mix in your pantry at all times, you are missing out on all the possibilities they provide in making quick and easy desserts.  Cake batter cookies taste like a cross between wedding cake and sugar cookies. How yummy is that!! You can use any kind of sprinkles you want in this for any occasion or holiday. This would be a great addition to any cookie tray for holiday get-togethers or even a last minute treat for your children to take to class.

Sprinkle cookies isn’t the actual name but it’s the one that has been dubbed by my family. I can’t even remember the original name but trust me when I tell you, this is a good cookie. I’ve seen it many food blogs as Firecracker cookies for the 4th of July holidays, which is what I chose to make them for this go-round.

* Make sure to use this size of cake mix. I have not tried this with the smaller mixes so I can't tell you how they would turn out. If you try it with a smaller mix, come back and let me know how it went.
