You all know how to follow the directions on the box and make a traditional cake, but here are some other fun ways to use that mix!
If you’re craving funfetti cake… Mix up your routine and try making funfetti cookies! In a bowl, combine funfetti cake mix with 1/3 cup of oil and two eggs (this is different from the directions that you’ll see on the box). Then stir the dough and shape it into balls. Place these on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 375 degrees for six to eight minutes. Buy rainbow chip frosting at the store (or any other type) to frost the cookies once they’ve cooled!
If you love peanut butter… Use yellow cake mix to make delicious peanut butter cookies! Mix together a packet of yellow cake mix, two eggs and 1/3 cup of vegetable oil. Stir in ¾ cup of peanut butter once the ingredients have turned into dough. Then shape the dough into balls and roll in granulated white sugar before placing each cookie on a greased cookie sheet. Once on the sheet, use a fork to make a cross-hatch pattern on the top of each cookie and to flatten the dough. Bake these for 10-12 minutes at 350 degrees!
If you want to impress your friends…Use your cake mix to make truffles (you don’t even have to bake them!). Beat together ½ cup of sugar and ½ cup of butter with an electric mixer. Then add 1 cup of yellow cake mix, 1.5 cups of flour, 1/8 teaspoon of salt and 1 teaspoon of vanilla, and mix all together. Add three Tablespoons of milk (or more as needed) to turn the mixture into dough. Then mix in sprinkles for a fun twist and shape the dough into balls. Place on a wax/ parchment paper-lined pan and chill in the refrigerator for 15 minutes. While the truffles are chilling, melt a bag of semisweet chocolate chips in the microwave. Dip balls into chocolate using a fork and place them back into the refrigerator until set – yum!
So there you have it, collegiettes! If you’re feeling bored with your typical dinner of mac n’cheese or ramen noodles, try some of these fun ideas to mix up your menu. Bon appétit!
