Cake Batter Chocolate Chip Cookies

The smell of freshly baked cookies, it just makes you feel good inside and the smell is insatiable. We recently moved into our house and while it is not completely set up, I could not help entertaining. We had my cousins over to watch the NBA Finals Game 5, as I was trying to put together a menu, for my first cooking experience in my new kitchen, I decided on these cookies. They look fabulous, are fun, and I knew they would make my house smell amazing and homey, even if it did not look that way yet.

These cookies were definitely a success, with adults and kids. They were chewy, gooey, and overall a delicious slam-dunk!

1 1/4 cup of Flour
1 1/4 cup of Yellow Cake Mix
1/2 teaspoon of Baking Soda
3/4 cup of Butter, unsalted and softened
1/2 cup of Sugar
1/2 cup of Golden Brown Sugar
1 Egg
1 1/2 teaspoon of Vanilla
1/2 cup of White Chocolate Chips
1/2 cup of Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
1/2 cup of Sprinkles

First, in a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, yellow cake mix, and baking soda. Set aside.

Next, in the bowl of your stand mixer, cream the butter and sugars together, when creamy, add the egg and vanilla.

Now, gradually add the flour mixture in until it is all combined.

Next, stir in the chocolate chips and sprinkles, until just combined. Do not overmix.

Chill the dough for at least an hour, or up to 4 days. This is very important so the cookies do not spread.

When the time has elasped, pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees.

Now, scoop rounded tablespoons onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or silpat mats. Bake for 10-12 minutes.

Let the cookies cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheet before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.


Happy Cooking,
