So cute and oh so easy!
I made these cookies a while back for my daughter's 2nd birthday. Like most children (and many adults), she loves sprinkles. This recipe is so simple and they are truly adorable. The recipe did not suggest making them into sandwich cookies, but since I made them so small I thought it would be nice. I used some leftover vanilla frosting from her birthday cupcakes, but chocolate, mocha, or perhaps peanut butter frosting would be a really nice addition.
Chocolate Cake Mix Sandwich Cookies
adapted from Sally's Baking Addiction
1 box chocolate cake mix
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 large eggs
1/3 cup vegetable oil, canola oil, or melted coconut oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
sprinkles for rolling (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Add all ingredients to a bowl and mix well with a rubber spatula. If the cookie dough seems too sticky, chill in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes so it is easier to handle.
Pour some sprinkles onto a plate or into a bowl. Form dough into tablespoon-sized balls and roll in the sprinkles.
Bake on a parchment paper for 10 minutes. Let cool on the sheet for another 10 minutes after removing from the oven. When completely cool apply frosting on bottom of one half the cookies and sandwich with unfrosted cookie.
