Birthday Cake Chocolate Chip Cookies

I originally posted this recipe about 3 years ago…and I will tell you they are one of my most favorite cookies to make. They pretty much cover all the dessert-bases. Except Jello. No Jello here.

Anyhow, I was never happy with the pictures that I posted. They just didn’t do these babies justice!

So today I present you the 2016 version on my Birthday Cake Chocolate Chip Cookies…fresh with a few recipe tweaks and bright shiny pictures!

Pure love!

These are super simple, actually.

How to Make These Tasty Cake Mix Cookies

Start with these delicious Birthday Cake Golden Oreo cookies…

If you don’t have these in your area or can’t find them, totally just use a vanilla sandwich cookie in its place or just regular Golden Oreos.

Then grab some cake mix.  Use white, vanilla…even funfetti!

I literally couldn’t stop eating it.


My original recipe called for chilling the dough, and while you can still TOTALLY do that. I’ve tweaked it a bit so you don’t have to if you don’t want to! Patience has never been my thing!

Scoop out your dough and if you’re feeling fancy press a few chips and sprinkles on top before baking!

Hi! I’m Shelly and I’m an addict. Of the buttercream sort. I started this site a few years ago as a way to justify my sugary, buttery obsession with desserts. It has worked out well for me so far, because as it turns out you guys all love sugary, buttery desserts too! It feels good to know you're not alone, doesn’t it?

I used salted butter because it wasn’t specified to be unsalted… did i mess it up?! Lol


Any suggestions if I can’t find the Golden birthday cake Oreos?

I made these a few days ago for a friend’s surprise birthday party and they were seriously addicting, everyone kept saying how amazing they were! Definitely some of the best cookies I have ever had, thanks for the recipe 🙂

Dead, just dead. I’m reading this at work and am so tempted to go home “sick” immediately so I can make these. And then I will literally make myself sick from eating all the dough so it won’t be a lie. #winning!


How many cookies does this make?


One of my favorite recipes found on Pinterest!! I’ve been making these cookies for about a year. I decided to make a variation using Red Velvet Oreos. Here’s the Pin and credit for your inspiration.

Just made a double batch of these bad boys for a bake sale this week. The dough IS delicious and the cookies are amazing. Yes to undercooking, but I still found I had to add a few minutes. Fun fun cookies!

can you mail these cookies?


Dough is in the fridge. Any ideas on how I can use the leftover funfetti cake mix?


OK… I have tried these cookies FORTEEN times and they haven’t came out correctly? They always come out looking like mini cupcakes…. PLEASE HELP!


I made these for my best friend for her birthday. They were DELICIOUS. Everyone loved them. And you were right… that was the best tasting batter ever.


Love these cookies! I found this recipe a month or so ago via Pinterest. I made them tonight for the first time. Not only did I discover this delicious crunchy and sweet cookie, I discovered Birthday Cake Oreos. They are a gift for a friend of our family – for his birthday. I’m sure he will love them. Thank you for sharing such a fabulous and yummo recipe!


I made this dough Sunday night and left it in the fridge until tonight (Wed) when I baked them for my son’s first birthday – seriously good!! I loved them!!! I am not a big chocolate chip fan but my husband loves chocolate so to compromised we didn’t do chocolate chips and used chocolate birthday cake Oreos and had to bake for about 16 minutes. So yummy and a great combo of chewy and crisp!! Thanks for sharing!


I just made these for my little brother’s birthday and they turned out beautifully! I cut all the ratios in half and still ended up with 21 cookies that were just the right amount of indulgence. This recipe is a keeper. Thanks for sharing!


I made these cookies for my fiancé’s birthday in July and they were amazing! I had no idea that birthday cake Oreos even existed! Everyone loved them so much that I’m going to make another batch this weekend to celebrate my friend’s birthday and my birthday next week.


Just made these cookies and they are delicious. You were definitely right they were the best I ever had. Especially the dough! I’m keeping this one and will def be making them often

I made these a few weeks ago for a cookie exchange and am making them again on Thursday for a good friend’s birthday. They are so, so good! I couldn’t find the Birthday Cake Oreos the first time around so I used the regular Golden Oreos and Funfetti cake mix. I found the BC Oreos at Target today and will be using the Funfetti cake mix again. I think I’ll dip the top of each cookie dough ball in sprinkles before I bake them. You can never have enough sprinkles!


Made these last week for the family and making them again tonight for a church function tomorrow. They are delicious. We preferred them without the Oreos (we didn’t think it took away from the cookie to omit the oreos- but mainly it saved us $4.50). Thanks so much for sharing this recipe. We loved them!


I just made these, well, the batter anyway, and you are right! Its soooooo good! I keep going back to the fridge to “test’ it, make sure its still ok in there. A+!


I made these today! I let them chill for two hours but probably should have rolled into balls and froze them as they were still. Little runny. Delicious nonetheless!


About how many oreos do you use?


I need to get my hands on those birthday cake oreos, but I`m afraid I will eat the whole bag.

Dear Shelly,

These cookies are beautiful. I need them.


PS…my 14-year-old is obsessed with his keyboard. Somewhere this week, he heard the Price is Right theme song. And is playing it over and over (and over). Wanna come visit? 😉


These are the cutest cookies ever! Thanks for sharing such a brilliant idea!
