If you like chocolate chip cookies and you like cake batter, you will love these soft and chewy cookies. And who doesn’t love funfetti? Everything tastes better with a little “funfetti” and the same goes for chocolate chip cookies. I’ve never been one of those people who like to lick the spoon after mixing up a cake, however, I love that cake batter flavor. These cookies taste just like that, but with chocolate. They’re perfectly thick, full of sprinkles, cake batter flavor, soft, crinkly, and chewy. Sounds fabulous to me!

I’ve had such a busy past few weeks, working, doing TV segments and developing recipes, sometimes it just feels good to relax and bake. Baking cookies is one of my favorite things to do, and it gives me about an hour or so just to “chill” out. Plus at the end I have freshly baked cookies to eat. It works out really great! Give it a try sometime.

Has anyone else ever baked cookies with a cake mix before? This was my first time, and I have to say it turned out really great. I was a little skeptical, just because I’ve never done it before and was worried the measurements would be off, but everything worked out perfectly.
