Is it time for a party yet???
Well, if not then I say we just make it happen and nothing says party like funfetti sprinkled treats! With years of baking behind me I’ve probably made just about every version of cookie there is by now. For some reason though, these are extra close to my heart because they bring out the kid inside me every time I make them.
So these cookies get their cake batter flavor from a few different things. The sprinkles being the main one (I prefer to use naturally colored ones by the way). Then a few drops of almond extract, the white chocolate, and adding some yogurt to the mix all add up to a very nostalgic tasting treat.
Of course, there has to be a little dark chocolate thrown in for good measure because…..chocolate. Other than that these are pretty basic on ingredients and they come together really fast. I can’t wait to know what you think so feel free to let me know in the comments if you decide to try them.
