Ok y’all.

Sometimes you just need a cookie to make you happy. Because sometimes it’s perfectly ok to eat your feelings.

I speak from personal experience.

Also, can we just talk about people who won’t eat cake mix for a quick second…Yep, I know you’re out there.

And really, I appreciate you. I really do.

But these cookies can’t be made without it.

If you want a cookie with sprinkles that doesn’t include cake mix check out these, or these, or these these and these.

But today we’re getting down and dirty and making super yummy Gooey Butter Funfetti Cookies.

Because they can’t be Funfetti without cake mix. That’s a true fact. AND I made a short little video to show you just how easy they are!

Are you fully on board?

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’m making my second batch of these!! If it was up to my family I would’ve made a second batch immediately after the first! We all loved them.What UI found was if I do exactly 10 minutes they come out like a gooey butter cake, if i let them stay just a few minutes longer like 4-5 they come out cakey,I love them both! Thank you for the recipe,definitely a keeper and so easy…I actually made them the second time without looking at the recipe,although i did double check to make sure i didn’t leave anything out..lol…Happy Thanksgiving!

          You can use either! It’s a taste preference, but I used salted. If you use unsalted, you might need to add a 1/2 tsp salt to the dough.

  2. Tammy

    I just made these and they are more of a cakey consistency rather than gooey and dense (like I was expecting). Did I do something wrong?

  3. Jill

    These cookies are easy and delicious. Rolling them in powdered sugar before baking gives them just the right amount of sweetness. Thanks for sharing!

  4. Rebecca

    I found these on pintrest and decided to try them. Let me just say that the whole batch was gone in ONE day! My family loved them! Even my husband, who hates cream cheese and is super picky about his sweets. They keep asking for more! I’m making 2 batches today 🙂

    how would you store these? Do u need to refrigerate them? And up to how many days will these be good for? And lastly is it ok to use red velvet cake mix instead?

  6. Barbara

    I need to do something for a breast cancer fund raiser and would like to use only pink sprinkles. Can I use a white cake mix (instead of funfetti) and add pink sprinkles?

  7. Rachel

    I wasn’t crazy about these cookies just because they were not as sweet as I had hoped but my girlfriend and mom loved them. If you’re a sugar addict like me I would consider adding more sugar to the dough but if you’re looking for more of a biscuitty flavored cookie these are perfect.

    I just made these for Independence Day! I called them firecracker cookies bc they look like the colorful exploding firecrackers.

      Pillsbury makes a White Cake Mix as well, if you wanted to add in the red and blue sprinkles or any other color, based on the holiday!!!

      P.S. First batch in the oven right now…we can’t wait to try them.

  9. Real life confession: I used to (ok sometimes I still do) buy cake mix solely to eat straight from the box as a snack. It’s just so good and I’ve never been able to recreate it on my own. I cannot WAIT to make these!

  10. Sometimes a cookie does make everything just a bit better!
    These are “happy” and delicious looking cookies. I would love one with a nice cup of coffee. That certainly would brighten the day. Blessings, Catherine xo
