Plan ahead... needs to chill.
|Best cookie dough ever|
1 1/4 c. flour
1 1/4 c. white boxed cake mix
1/2 tsp. baking soda
3/4 c. butter, softened
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
3/4 c. chocolate chips
1/3 c. sprinkles, the brighter the better!
In a large bowl, combine the flour, cake mix, and baking soda. Stir, then set aside.
In a separate bowl, combine the butter and sugars. Beat until creamy. Stir in the egg and vanilla.
Add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients. Mix until just combined. Do not overmix. Fold in the chocolate chips and sprinkles.
Cover and refrigerate dough for at least 1 hour.
When the dough has chilled, preheat the oven to 350 F.
Shape your dough balls to be taller than wider. I kind of thought they looked similar to a snowman shape when I was making them. Place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake 10-12 minutes, or until the cookies start to brown around the edges. If the centers still appear a little soft, it's okay. Cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheets before removing to a cooling rack.
