Funfetti Cookie Sandwiches (Dressed up for Christmas)

JUMP TO RECIPE

Funfetti Cookie Sandwiches are the perfect use for cake mix – make them for every occasion using your favorite sprinkle colors!

These were too fun for me not to share with you. I posted them originally over at Design Dazzle, for their 100 Ideas of Christmas Wonderful series. But these are super simple, and, it being almost Christmas Eve and all, I figured you might need a last-minute treat for your cookie platters.

Are you all ready? I mean…Christmas Eve is tomorrow. TOMORROW, can you believe it? Today I’m in a whirlwind of baking, cleaning, and trying to figure out a way to de-hair my dog so that there is a point to vacuuming before my parents get here.

Isn’t this, like, the prettiest bowl of sprinkles ever?

Sprinkles and me, we’re BFFs. Especially Christmas sprinkles. I loooooove seeing the red, green, and white mix. In fact, I spent $7 on a pack of 4 bottles of sprinkles so I could have the bottle of jimmies for these cookies. Totally worth it. Jimmies are my absolute fav.

These cookies are easy-peasy. They start with cake mix. Anything is better with cake mix!

I added some butter emulsion (like a thick extract) to the batter, to pump up the Funfetti-ness of these cookies. If you don’t have butter extract, don’t worry. They are cake batter enough with just the cake mix.

Then I made marshmallow cream frosting for the filling. Can you say sugar overload?

{Awesome sugar overload, I should clarify. Totally rad, people!}

Your family and the kids stuck at the kid table are going to love them tomorrow!

So, um, if you need a super easy and sparkly dessert, make these. I promise you won’t be sorry!

And Happy Christmas Eve-Eve. Unless you’re reading this tomorrow…then, well. Christmas is tomorrow!
