Cookies are our sweet snack favorite at our house! I usually make a different kind a couple times a week and these cake mix cookies are a regular.

We love that you can make different flavors by switching up the cake mix and sometimes we skip the sprinkles or add in a color that matches that cake mix.

They're super soft, sweet and just the perfect size for a snack. We love frosting them too. They stay soft for quite a few days if you keep them stored in an airtight container.

This cookie recipe is perfect for getting kids in the kitchen to learn some math by measuring, and if they're old enough, reading the recipe.
