- 1 box Duncan Hines yellow cake mix*
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- Chocolate sprinkles
- Halloween sprinkles
- Duncan Hines chocolate frosting*
*You can use a different brand if you don't need them to be dairy free. Duncan Hines just happens to be dairy free. (Yay!)
Preheat oven to 350F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a bowl, mix cake mix, eggs, oil, and baking powder with a wooden spoon until combined. Add sprinkles and mix. Drop a teaspoon of dough onto the prepared sheets, leaving an inch between each cookie. Bake for 7-8 minutes until cookie has set but has not yet browned, rotating the pans halfway through the baking. Transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool.
Frost bottom cookie, place 2nd cookie on top. Roll in assorted sprinkles.
They turned out very yummy, and if I hadn't made them I wouldn't have guessed they were dairy-free. And the recipe would be super easy to adapt for a variety of holidays. I'm still looking forward to making the original Funfetti cookies, but these are a nice alternative until I can have the real thing.
Oh, and in case you're wondering, Emma was a duck for Halloween... and if I do say so myself, she's pretty much the cutest little duck I've ever seen.
