Are you running behind and need to take something to a Fourth of July party? I think this is why cake mix cookies were invented.  With just a box of cake mix and a few pantry items you can easily and quickly make a festive dessert. I hope you enjoy these red white and blue cake mix cookies as much we do! We love  snickerdoodle cake mix cookies and chocolate cake mix cookies make the best ice cream sandwiches EVER!

Red and Blue Velvet Cookies

1 Red or Blue Velvet Cake Mix
1/3 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
1/4 cup sprinkles (optional)

Mix cake mix together with oil and eggs. Make balls. I use a scoop to make this go even quicker. Bake at 350 for about 10 mins for small cookies like these or about 13 minutes for larger. Don’t over bake.

We also used a yellow cake mix (a white cake mix would have been better). In no time at all we made red white and blue cookies!
