How to Make Valentine Confetti Cookies
These cookies are super easy to make and come together so quickly. It only takes a few simple steps and a few minutes. That’s all there is to it!
Step 1: Prep
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper. Bake 1 cookie sheet at a time or bake two, then bake the next batch separately.
Step 2: Combine the Dry Ingredients
Mix the cake mix and baking soda in a large bowl.
Step 3: Combine the Wet Ingredients
Combine the eggs, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract in another bowl.
Step 4: Make the Batter
Add the egg mixture to the cake mixture and beat with an electric mixer until combined. Then, add Valentine’s sprinkles and mix.
Step 5: Bake
Scoop out the dough with a small cookie scoop and place each ball on the prepared baking sheet, leaving an inch between each dough ball. Sprinkle with more Valentine’s sprinkles and bake for 8 to 9 minutes until the cookies begin to brown slightly.
Step 6: Cool
Remove the cookies and let them cool on the cookie sheet for 3 minutes. Then, transfer them to a cooling rack to cool completely. Then do this again with the next cookie sheet. Enjoy!

- Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet first so the carry-over cooking time can finish baking them.
What are cake mix cookies?
Cake mix cookies are cookies that are made primarily with cake mix rather than a flour mixture.
What is the texture of cake mix cookies?
Unsurprisingly, cake mix cookies have a cake-like texture. Although they aren’t crumbly like a cake, they do have a soft, chewy texture.
Why are my cookies too soft in the middle?
These cookies need to cool on the cookie sheet so carry-over cooking time can continue baking them to perfection. If you remove them too soon, the middle of your cookies will be underdone.
