Red Velvet Funfetti Cookies | Can't Stay Out of the Kitchen

Red Velvet Funfetti Cookies

March 29, 2013Teresa

Red Velvet Funfetti Cookies are a dream. A couple of weeks ago I made these delicious cookies which have already been pinned a lot on Pinterest. I loved the idea of putting lots of sprinkles in a cake mix and I decided to feature it a different way. That’s when I came up with the idea of Chocolate Funfetti Cookies, Coconut Funfetti Cookies and Red Velvet Funfetti Cookies.

I’m still trying to clean out my pantry and this was a way to get rid of a box of Red Velvet cake mix and another jar of rainbow sprinkles! On top of that the cookies tasted awesome.

Red Velvet Funfetti Cookies have the delicious chocolate taste you expect in red velvet cookies, plus loads of rainbow sprinkles to make them even more festive and pretty! Plus they are super quick and easy to mix up since they start with a cake mix!

Hey, these cookies can be whipped up and out of the oven in about 15 minutes time. Wow! I enjoy quick and easy especially when it’s topped off with superb taste!

If you’re looking for a delectable cookie recipe for holiday baking or any kind of special occasion like Valentine’s Day or birthdays, than Red Velvet Funfetti Cookies are a great option for you. If you want an easy cookie to whip up for your family these cookies will soon become family favorites!

I originally posted this recipe in March 2013 before I started using my Canon camera so they weren’t as sharp and clear as I would have liked. I’ve been remaking all those first-year blog recipes so I can get better pictures, but because I posted almost 600 pictures that first year, that’s a lot of recipes to remake!

I recently remade these cookies (January 2016) so I could get some fresher pictures. Red Velvet Funfetti Cookies are just as easy as can be. Really. You’ll love them.

Bake about 14-16 minutes or until done. These cookies plump up nice. They don’t flatten out like some cookies do.
