Wanna lock down the guy you're dating as a boyfriend? Bake THESE cookies. 100% Success Rate.


So, I didn't blog yesterday because I'm lazy and an asshole, etc. I wanted to do today as Kelsey's bridal shower inspiration but I didn't get my graphics put together in time, because, well I was having a heart to heart with Kelsey and now its too late, because I have a date with Brandon tonight AND have to do laundry AND I have to pack AND I have to get on an airplane to Chicago for two frickin' weeks tomorrow AND I laid at the pool the entire getting my tan on. Whatevs. 

Anyways, since tonight is the last night I see Brandon for 2 weeks, I'm trying to keep my memory vivid and alive in his mind...so I baked him an ass ton of cookies. 


So, these are my famous Funfetti Cake Batter cookies. They aren't healthy, but they are easy to make and so god damn delicious that I ate one to "taste test" my batch and had to walk away from the tray before I ate the entire thing Cookie Monster Style. 

In any event, if you've ever needed to impress your significant others OR impress coworkers OR fix a broken heart with warm cookies, these are the cookies you need to bake. Without further a do, here we go!

You Need:

1 box vanilla cake mix
1 tsp baking powder
2 eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup color sprinkles
1/4 cup chocolate chips (the mini one work best, but hey, chocolate is chocolate)

Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, mix together the cake mix and baking powder. In a small bowl, mix together the eggs, oil and vanilla. Add the egg mixture to the cake mixture and stir to combine. Stir in the sprinkles. Drop by spoonfuls onto a cookie sheet.

Bake for 9-11 minutes. Allow to cool for 5 minutes on cookie sheet before transferring to cooling rack. They will be very soft at first....which is the best time to shove them all in your mouth, in my opinion. Last, open all the windows in your house to share the intoxicating scent of fresh baked cookies with your now very jealous neighbors.
This is my favorite combo, but there are literally dozens of combinations of cake mix flavors and stuff you can put in them. I do not suggest using actual Funfetti cake mix or angel food cake mix of any sort, because the flavor is a bit lacking and the Funfetti is not nearly as pretty as adding sprinkles in. One of my other favorite combinations is red velvet with white chocolate chunks and black sprinkles. They come out looking amazing and the taste is incredibly rich and amazing.

Perhaps Brandon will let us know how he feels about these bad boys later tonight.

By the way, I'm flying to Chicago tomorrow for 2 weeks of "business" (aka lounging around my mother's house in yoga pants and crafting wedding shit off Pinterest with Amy), so my very, very dear sorority sister, Victoria, will be guest blogging tomorrow with a review of her Hobbit-like OkCupid date from yesterday.
