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.

Equipment Needed

  • 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.

This is so good. I was looking for something to bring for my daughter’s kindergarten class for valentine’s day. These cookies are perfect and tasty.

I think my mom made something similar to these when I was growing up. Around Christmas time there would be red and green ones like this! Kids love them

I always love trying out different snacks items every week and these cookies are pretty interesting for me to try out. The topping using red sprinkle sugar makes it look amazing and kids would love it so much.

This is the perfect kind of recipe for my kids to be able to do almost on their own in the kitchen! Plus, they love anything glittery and the red sprinkle sugar will be a huge hit!
