cake batter white chocolate chip cookie recipe

I really love cake batter anything. When I discovered cake batter ice cream in college, my whole world changed. Literally. By like twenty pounds, which is why I no longer buy cake batter ice cream. Since I’ve been clean of that habit for a few years now, I decided I’d allow myself to make these cake batter white chocolate chip cookies, which did not disappoint. To make them, I followed this recipe from Sally’s Baking Addiction and modified it a bit:

Cake Batter Chocolate Chip Cookies

makes about 2 dozen

  • 1 and 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 and 1/4 cup yellow or white boxed cake mix
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 cup (1.5 sticks) unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 and 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup sprinkles plus extra to add on top

In a large bowl, sift together flour, cake mix, and baking soda.  Set aside.  In a separate bowl, cream together the butter and sugars on medium speed.  Mix in the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla until creamy.

Add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients and mix until just combined. Fold in the chocolate chips and sprinkles.
Refrigerate dough for at least 1 hour.  Chilling the dough keeps the cookie from spreading too much.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Scoop rounded tablespoons of the cold dough onto an ungreased baking sheet. Add more sprinkles on top of the dough before baking for more visible sprinkles when finished. Make sure to keep dough chilled when working in batches. Bake for 11-14 minutes until edges are slightly browned.  The centers will still appear soft, but the cookies will set as they cool.

Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 4 minutes and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

DIY // Mini Confetti Jar Favors

DIY mini confetti jar favors by sugar and cloth

ribbon & confetti When it comes to parties, for me it’s all in the details. I also really love fun send-offs and ways to get people into the partying on their own with things like confetti, which is how I ended up with these mini confetti jars as favors that also arm guests with a little celebration of their own! They’re super easy to make, and could be customized for anything from weddings, to birthdays, to goodies for your business. Who wouldn’t love a mini glass jar to take home and fill, anyways?
