Rainbow Cake Mix Cookies - Aka Party-Cake Cookies

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by BlondieItaliana

These are truly simple cookies to make & they look very festive for Birthday or New Home or Job Well Done celebrations. You can use pink & red for Valentine's Day, Green for St. Pat's, Red & Green for Christmas. They can be made basically with any additions you like, nuts, chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, I've used dried cherries and cranberries with white chocolate chips... anything goes... this particular recipe is for the Party Cake Rainbow Cookies... PS: This recipe works well with the Fun-fetti & Confetti Cake mixes too.

Thanks, BlondieItaliana! My little girl had so much fun making these! You know, kids want fun, easy recipes with quick results and this one really fits the bill. She also loved the taste of the cookies and so did DH. They're yummy! We used the Duncan Hines yellow cake with chocolate chips and multi-colored sprinkles. This was such a big hit with us. I'll be keeping this one to make again and again.
