Funfetti Gooey Butter Cookies

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 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?

  1. A family favorite! Use different mixes or add ins. I recommend lemon cake mix with a little fresh lemon zest. I’ve added fresh frieze dried blueberries to the lemon and they were AMAZING ❤️

  2. I added a half cup of funfetti white chocolate chips, half cup of sprinkles and colored the sugar before I rolled them! They were fabulous. Thanks for the recipe

  3. We love these cookies! Can the dough be frozen so I can make cookies at a later time?

  4. Do I have to roll the cookies in powdered sugar? I’m eager to make these for a party on monday but don’t have powdered sugar.
