Red Sprinkle Sugar Cake Mix Crinkle Cookies Recipe From Val's Kitchen

Yes I have more cake mix crinkle cookies for you! This batch gets all of it’s color from the sugar. If you’re looking for a simple red cookie to put out for Valentine’s Day, look no further! The red sugar used in this recipe makes a really bold statement. I did find it interesting that this batch came out more round and less crinkly than the other types of crinkle cookies I have made did. I’m not sure if it’s because the sugar that I used was a little bit coarser than the powdered sugar I used for other crinkle cookies. Here’s how I make them.

Red Sparkle Sugar Cake Mix Crinkle Cookies

The recipe makes 18-24 cookies, depending on how large you make the cookies. My batch made 18 nice sized cookies.

  • 15.25 oz box of white cake mix (I used Pillsbury Moist Supreme)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup oil (I used vegetable)
  • approximately 1.5 oz red sprinkle sugar (it’s almost half of the jar)


Preheat the oven to 350 f.

Place cake mix, eggs and oil in a mixing bowl and combine thoroughly.

Line the cookie sheets with parchment paper.

Place the sprinkle sugar into a smaller bowl.

Form balls with the dough. (I sometimes use a cookie dough scoop or an ice cream scoop, or if I can’t get that quickly I have also used a plastic medicine cup.)

Place each ball into the sugar and rotate to coat completely.

Place the balls onto the cookie sheet.

Bake for 10-11 minutes.

Let sit on the cooling rack for a few minutes before serving.
