Sprinkle Cake Cookies

A few weeks ago, we had an unseasonably cold and rainy day.  The kiddos and I were all warm and cozy with our comfys on (that’s sweats), candles lit and Michael Buble playing on Pandora.  It was just about the most perfect Wednesday I’ve ever had.  The only thing missing was something baking in the oven…well, well, well…the Mama can always find something to bake.
I had planned on grocery shopping the following day, so our pantry was a bit bare.  I pulled out one box of white cake mix, one small box of instant coconut pudding and some leftover Easter sprinkles…the perfect combination for some moist and delicious cookies :).
Now…all I had was coconut pudding…and let me tell you…they were DELICIOUS!  Even my non-coconut loving husband had about three of them.  But…if you don’t like coconut or don’t have that in your pantry, just mix and match it!  Use vanilla pudding, or lemon…or pumpkin spice…or pistastio…whatever you have will work (and don’t stop mixing and matching there…change up your cake mix…use chocolate, strawberry, lemon, spice, carrot, yellow…go nuts!).  The end result will be perfection!

Shopping List
1 box white cake mix (or whatever you like)
1 small box of instant coconut pudding (or whatever you like)
2 eggs
1/2 cup veggie oil
1 cup white chocolate chips (or whatever you like…chocolate, peanut butter or butterscotch too!)
3-4 tablespoons sprinkles
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
In a mixing bowl, combine cake mix, pudding, eggs and veggie oil with a spatula until all combined.  Stir in white chocolate chips and sprinkles and combine.
Drop onto a greased cookie sheet by the tablespoonful and bake about 8 to 10 minutes.
Remove cookies from oven and let them cool on the baking sheet about 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to finish cooling.
This makes a little over 2 dozen cookies.  And they’re flippin’ fabulous!  Moist and gooey…perfection!  Bake a batch…even if it’s not a cold and rainy day.

    That does sound like a great day! Going to give these a try! My kids would love them!

    First of all, that sounds like the PERFECT Wednesday. On this Wednesday, here in CO, it's snowy and crummy outside and I definitely just want to be inside by the fire, listening to Michael Buble and baking these delicious cookies. Coincidentally, my BF was just telling me last night that he LOVES coconut and he LOVES cookies. I might have to try them out for him. (It doesn't hurt that I LOVE white cake.) šŸ™‚

    Okay Mama! I've just put you to the true test of your Mix and Match philosophy…I am a new subscriber and an admitted "skeptic"! I am very old fashioned, not a Sandra Lee fan and most always cook or bake from scratch. I had abt 1/2 c of choc chips, butterscotch chips each, 1 box of carrot cake mix and a sugar free/fat free instant choc pudding just taking up space in my pantry. My two dozen cookies are now in the oven – stay tuned!

    Ooohhh! I love the idea of the coconut pudding in these! YUM!

    After a trip to the farmers market this morning, I decided to make these cookies as a surprise for dessert after dinner tonight. A little sweet added to our healthy meal! Can't wait to taste them! šŸ™‚

    Hummm, Cake cookies?!? I'll admit I am not a cake mix buyer but I do have one lonely box of chocolate fudge cake mix in my pantry. I just noticed a link on your page for chocolate peanut butter cake cookies, my oh my I may just have to give those a try and who knows maybe you've made me into a cake mix convert for everything except cakes.

    You always choose box? Or try homemade for cakes and cookies? Not from a critical place at all, just curious and why?

    This mix and match recipe is brillant!! I used a yellow cake mix, vanilla pudding, chocolate chips and m&m's. Baked it in a 9×13 pan and cut into bars! They were outstanding!! A cross between a cookie and a blondie.
    Even used sugar free cake mix and pudding and no one could tell!!

    My cookies are cooling now — I used a strawberry cake mix, vanilla pudding and chocolate chips. I'll let you know how they turn out!
