I was rearranging my pantry/little lofty cabinets last night and found the leftover cake batter used for the Birthday Cake Popcorn.  What the heck do you do with leftover cake batter anyway??!!??  Well, my sister had used Red Velvet cake mix to make cookies a while back so I decided to use the mix for Funfetti cookies….AND cream cheese frosting :0)

Super simple.

K- super simple.

Cake mix
1/3 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
1 cup white chocolate chips (also leftover from the Birthday Cake Popcorn)

That is it!

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees then blend the cake mix, oil and eggs until smooth.  The dough will be a bit more oily than if you were making regular cookies (looks gross, tastes GOOD)…stir in the chocolate chips.

Grease a cookie sheet or prepare a sheet with parchment paper (I tried both) and drop the cookies on the sheet(s).  Bake for about 10 minutes…or until golden brown on the bottom.

While the cookies are baking…clean up the mess and start on the frosting!

Again- super simple.

8 oz cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Blend the cream cheese and butter until creamy….mix in the vanilla, blend…add half of the sugar, blend…and then stir in the other half of sugar.  Wa-la!

Let the cookies cool completely and then decorate with the frosting and some sprinkles!
