Cake Batter Chocolate Chip Cookies

These tasty cookies have a nice texture—soft in the middle, crunchy on the outside. They would be a fun cookie to make with little ones or to serve at a children’s party {“big kids” will enjoy them too!}.

STEP 1: COOKIE DOUGH

In a large bowl, sift together 1 1/4 cups of flour, 1 1/4 cups of yellow cake mix and 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda; Set aside. In a separate bowl, cream together 3/4 cup of softened butter, 1/2 cup of granulated sugar and 1/2 cup of brown sugar. Add 1 egg and 1 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla; Mix until smooth. Add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients. Mix just until combined, making sure not to over-mix. Fold in 1/2 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips, 1/2 of white chocolate chips and 1/2 cup of sprinkles. Chill the dough for at least 1 hour {it can be refrigerated for up to 4 days}.

STEP 2: BAKE

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Scoop rounded tablespoons of the cold dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for about 10-12 minutes. The edges should be slightly brown and the center will appear soft. They will set as they cool.

STEP 3: LET THE COOKIES COOL
