Did you know that you can make cookies out of a box of funfetti cake mix? I didn’t until recently, and it’s been a truly amazing discovery. They are a quick, cheap, easy way to whip up a special treat (plus since funfetti comes in seasonal varieties, you can make them for all kinds of special occasions too!
They come out great every time, and always taste delicious (like cake, only firmer!)
The recipe is on the side of the box of funfetti in case you want to give it a go.
Now, onto bigger and better (oreo filled!) things
I decided, with my second box of funfetti, to attempt these Cake Batter Oreos I saw online, in honor of oreo’s 100th birthday, and also well because oreos rule, and so does funfetti, so why not combine two of my loves into one amazing dessert?
So the instructions basically say to add water until you get a thick batter, well, I ended up adding about a whole cup of water, a few tablespoons of oil, and 1 egg before I got a consistency that was thick but not too thick. Then comes the dunking. As seen above, its basically just dunking oreos into the batter, and placing them on a cookie sheet, then baking them until they are done (takes about 8-9 minutes)
The finished product isn’t all that attractive from the outside….
but it’s what INSIDE that really counts here
I love this cross section of the cookie, and when I tasted it, I personally enjoyed it, my husband proclaimed to not be a huge fan (however that didn’t stop him from sampling more of them…)
Overall, a worthwhile experiment. Would I make them again? Probably. I mean, come on, its a cookie inside cake, how can you NOT like that?
Now if you’ll excuse me I need to go sample more of them….for research purposes of course
