  • 1 box (15.25 oz/432 g) cake mix
  • 1/3 cup (80 ml) vegetable or canola oil
  • 1/4 cup (60 g) plain regular yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon (5 ml) pure vanilla extract (optional)
  • 1/2 cup (95 g) sprinkles


  • Preheat oven to 350°F (180º C). Line a baking sheet with a silicone mat or parchment paper. Set aside.
  • Combine the cake mix, oil, yogurt, and vanilla( if using) in a medium bowl. Stir together until well combined. If using any mix-ins, add now and mix to distribute evenly.
  • Scoop out 1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons of dough for each cookie. Roll each portion into a ball. If using any topping, top the cookie balls with your topping of preference now; I used sprinkles. Place cookie balls onto the prepared baking sheet.
  • Bake for 9-11 minutes, until barely set around the edges. Allow to cool on the baking sheets for 3-4 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.


STORE at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
FREEZE: Let the cookies cool completely after baking. Then place on a cookie sheet and flash freeze for about 30 minutes. Once they're hard, place the cookies in a freezer container or bag and freeze for up to 2 months. To thaw, remove from the freezer about 2 hours before enjoying and let them thaw at room temperature.
  • Don't overbake: These cookies should have a soft texture so bake for about 10 minutes or until they are set.
  • If the cookie dough is too sticky, you can refrigerate it for about 30 minutes, so it's easier to work with.
  • PRO TIP >>> Keep Your Cookies Soft: No one likes a hard, dry cookie (especially not Santa). To ensure cookie freshness, store them in a container with a slice of white bread. The cookies will absorb that moisture, keeping them softer longer.
