Blogmas Day 17 | Christmas Cake Batter Cookies

Last night I decided to cook dinner for my parents and also make a huge batch of Christmas cookies before falling asleep at 4 am! I know, I was overachieving. I found this recipe for cake batter cookies, which took only 20 minutes including prep and baking time, and they were A M A Z I N G. I’m always excited about any recipe that’s easy, but throw in a speedy baking time and I’m all in. For future batches, I will include an additional ~1/4 cup of chocolate chips and make them the mini ones! These large chocolate chips don’t spread out as well as I’d like. I will also mix the sprinkles into the actual dough instead of sprinkling them on right before baking.

Ingredients (makes approximately 16 cookies):

  • One box Betty Crocker white cake mix
  • Two egg whites
  • Two tablespoons flour
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • One cup chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup red and green sprinkles


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and set for nine minutes baking time.
  2. Thoroughly mix cake mix, egg whites, flour, oil, chocolate chips, and sprinkles in a large bowl.
  3. Roll dough into small balls and place on baking sheet.
  4. Smash dough down until slightly flat and top with extra sprinkles.
  5. Bake for approximately nine minutes or until cookies are almost finished (try not to overbake! They don’t taste as good when they’re crispy).
  6. Allow to cool and add extra chocolate chips and sprinkles if desired.
  7. Enjoy with milk or ice cream!
