Cake Batter Chocolate Chip Cookies

🌈 A colorful and whimsical treat for all ages!

🧾 Ingredients:

1 and 1/4 cup all-purpose flour 🌾
1 and 1/4 cup yellow or white cake mix 🍰
1/2 teaspoon baking soda 🧪
3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened 🧈
1/2 cup granulated sugar 🍚
1/2 cup light brown sugar 🟤
1 egg, room temperature 🥚
1 and 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract 🍦
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips 🍫
1/2 cup white chocolate chips ⚪
1/2 cup rainbow sprinkles 🌈
👩‍🍳 Directions:

Sift together the flour, cake mix, and baking soda. Set this dry mixture aside.
In a large bowl, cream the softened butter with granulated and brown sugars on medium speed until the mixture is light and fluffy.
Add the egg and vanilla extract to the creamed mixture, ensuring a creamy consistency.
Gently fold in the flour mixture, being careful not to overmix – just until combined.
Stir in both semi-sweet and white chocolate chips along with the rainbow sprinkles, adding a burst of color and varied chocolate flavors.
Cover the cookie dough and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, or up to 4 days. This chilling step is crucial for achieving the perfect texture.
When ready to bake, preheat your oven to 350°F (177°C). Roll the chilled dough into balls and place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
Gently press down on each dough ball to slightly flatten – this helps them spread evenly while baking.
Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges start to turn a lovely golden brown.
Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for 4 minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely, allowing their flavor and texture to fully develop.
