Ingredients Required

You’ll need just a few simple ingredients to make these easter funfetti cookies. The full detailed instructions are on the printable recipe card below.

  • box of funfetti cake mix by betty crocker
  • vegetable oil
  • eggs
  • sprinkles
  • M&Ms candy

How to Make Funfetti Cake Mix Cookies

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahreheit.

In a large bowl, add box of cake mix (dry cake mix), oil and eggs. Stir with a wooden spoon until combined.

You can use an electric mixer (hand mixer) on low, and until just combined.

Add the sprinkles to the cake batter and gently mix. Even though the cake mix has confetti sprinkles, I like to add extra sprinkles sometimes.

Add M&M’s and gently mix again.

Shape dough into 1″ balls using a cookie scoop, and place the dough balls about 2″ apart on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.

If you have more M&M’s, stick a few on top of the cookies if you so wish – the more the merrier!

Bake for 6 to 7 minutes, but make sure you don’t overcook so they don’t dry out. I take them out just when I see an edge starting to brown.

For best results, I tend to undercook just in case. You’ll want that soft texture.

Place on a cooling rack (wire rack) until entirely cooled.

Enjoy! I am a huge fan of cake mix cookies and this one stands out from all the cake mix cookie recipes for sure. It’s sure to become a favourite of yours as it is mine!

  1. oh these look fun to make… girl is standing behind me wanting to make them now 🙂

  2. These cookies look so perfect for Easter and I bet they are moist and delicious.I am so glad
    I found this lovely recipe that you posted for us.My family will love them!! 🙂

  3. Might have fixed it. I made them bigger and baked them longer – 11 minutes.
    Either way, I love the idea. I will be taking the to work tomorrow as its my last day before the holiday. Might just play around with it in the future to make it my own. Thanks for the recipe!

  4. The batter seemed super dry before I was to add in the M&Ms so I did add a touch more coconut oil (this is what I always use when baking cookies and cakes) and then it seemed too oily. Very stiff batter, though. The cookies did not spread out much and took a lot longer than 7 minutes to cook. I eventually patted them flatter with a spatula and had to lift them up to see if the bottom was browning to tell when they were done. It’s possible that I may have baked them a little too long, but I didn’t see any browning along the edges as all. I was able to make 24 cookies out of the one box mix. They are cute and not bad, but I am just not a huge fan of cake mix cookies. I’m sure my co-workers will love them tomorrow, though!

  5. Hi my cake mix is similar but it calls for 3 eggs should I do 3 or the 2 you suggested thank you

    1. If yours says 3, I’d first try three. I don’t think the extra would make a difference, but it could if it’s needed for that particular mix. 🙂

  6. Easy and simple technique. I am afraid of baking cookies as they never turn good. I hope these will do. Lemme try and get back to you.
