Ingredients for chocolate cake mix sprinkle cookies

The biggest plus to making these cookies is that it truly uses THREE ingredients in the cookies themselves, and then you roll the cookie dough in Valentine’s sprinkles! Easy peasy!

Here’s what you’ll need:

Eggs – room temperature, large

Vegetable oil – I’ve tried these with melted butter and it didn’t work, so stick with the oil for this one

Chocolate Cake Mix – I used Duncan Hines Dark Chocolate Fudge

Valentine’s Day Sprinkles – Use Nonpareils or something similar

Valentine's Chocolate Sprinkle Cookies

Delicious Chocolate Cookies Rolled in Festive Valentine's Sprinkles
Servings 24 cookies


  • 2 whole eggs
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 15.25oz Dark Chocolate Fudge Cake Mix I prefer the taste and texture of Duncan Hines, but anything you find similar should be fine
  • 1-2 cups Valentine's Nonpareils small sphere sprinkles


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Prep a cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

In the bowl of a stand mixer, mix together the eggs and vegetable oil, then sift in the cake mix. Mix together until just combined. It will be soft.

Pour the sprinkles into a bowl or plate. Using a small 1" (or similar) cookie scoop, then roll the cookie into the sprinkles until the sphere is covered. Place onto the cookie sheet. Repeat.

Bake for 8 minutes, then let sit on the cookie sheet for 2 minutes. You want to err on the side of under-baked so they remain nice and chewy. Enjoy!
