Life is better with sprinkles on top. I love making things more colorful and fun! So I’m real “sweet” on putting new twists on classic recipes – like no bake cookies! (Sorry, I could not resist that pun. 😝)
Who else here is crazy about no bake desserts? Baking isn’t really my forte and, while I enjoy the end results, I don’t find the process very exhilarating. It’s also usually more time-consuming than I’d like, and there’s a certain science to it that I can’t quite seem to master. So getting to enjoy a dessert that I made and didn’t have to worry about baking A) makes me a little proud of myself and B) saves me some time and sanity.
So I had to try Mrs. Happy Homemaker’s Cake Batter No Bake Cookies when I discovered the recipe on Pinterest.
The original batch that I made of these no bake cookies were good, but incredibly rich. Sometimes, for me, white chocolate can kind of be overpowering. My husband kept comparing the cookies to fudge. He and our 5-year-old daughter loved them, but I could barely finish a whole one when it was dessert time.
So I made a couple of my own adjustments and tried again. I used less white chocolate and added more cake mix and oats. The second batch of cookies came out just right for me. Still sweet and delicious, but not too rich – more cakey, less white chocolatey, and a slightly firmer, chewier texture. 😋
Here’s my recipe for a fun twist on a simple, classic recipe: Vanilla Cupcake No Bake Cookies. White chocolate. Cake mix. Sprinkles. Sweet!
Also, I’m the worst at melting sprinkles when I’m mixing them into recipes. You can stir in as many sprinkles as you like. I usually just stir in a few and then cover the cookies with sprinkles after I’ve dropped them onto the wax paper. To each her own!
