It’s that time of the year again for college finals and I’ve a;ways sent my girls small care packages throughout their college careers and bigger ones when it was time for their final exams.  I only have one in college now as the other graduated and is in the “real” world doing what she loves – working as an RN.  The one in college has two more years so she will benefit from these care packages a bit longer. I try to put all the snacks she loves in there that she won’t buy because it’s not in “her” budget.  Yea…I laughed too.  “Her” budget is my money but I do appreciate her thriftiness. I also try to buy a few things throughout the year that may fit in with her apartment decor or those little things she tells me she wants but doesn’t buy for herself.  The food is a mix between healthy snacks and the favorite junk food craves.

I always, always include homemade cookies in the package.  It’s a must, a necessity and a requirement. She loves cheesecake and white chocolate chip cookies so I thought why not combine the two and make it a bit festive.  The Funfetti cake mixes are an easy way to get that festive look and by making a few changes you can turn the cake mix into a cookie dough mix.   The recipe makes the perfect amount to box up and mail too.  I usually can get a little over 2 dozen cookies from it.  Easy! Time-saving! She’s going to love them.


1 box Funfetti cake mix
1 small box instant cheesecake pudding mix
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract (not imitation)

1/2 cup vegetable oil
3/4 – 1 cup white chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350. 
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or spray sheet lightly with nonstick spray.
In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except the white chocolate chips until a dough ball forms.  

Stir in 1/2 cup of the white chocolate chips.


Using a tablespoon or cookie scoop, drop dough by tablespoonfuls onto prepared cookie sheets 2 inches apart. 
Use the remaining 1/4 cup white chocolate chips, press a few chips onto the tops of each cookie. This isn’t necessary but it does taste good!
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until cookies just start to lightly brown. The center of the cookies may appear soft still, this is fine.  
Cool for 2 – 3 minutes on cookie sheet, then remove to wire rack.
