Love at first sight

I came across confetti cookies, sometimes called funfetti cookies, a few months ago when looking for something colourful to bake during the dreary, rainy spring here in the UK. As soon as I saw these colourful cookies, I knew I had to make them.

Cookies are one of my favourite bakes. Mostly because they’re relatively easy to put together, but also because they’re so versatile with flavours and add-ins. I discovered more recently that I could bake beautiful thick NYC style cookies too, which has taken over my obsessed even more! If you haven’t already, I would definitely check out my delicious Biscoff NYC cookies, red velvet cookies and chocolate orange cookies, which are favourites on my blog!

The problem with sprinkles

So now I had discovered the new cookies I wanted to make, my next obstacle were sprinkles! If you’re a baker here in the UK, you’ll know that the sprinkles widely available in shops out here are just no good when it comes to being baked. They either lose their colour, turning a pale version of their original colour (or even just grey!), or they dissolve into nothing within the bake. Basically, they just don’t do well being baked!

With this in mind, I decided I wanted to make these confetti cookies enough that I would research my options for sprinkles. And so I came across these on amazon. Having tried out far too many without success, when these arrive and I used them for the first time, my heart jumped for joy!

Just look how beautiful and vibrant the colours have remained, even on being baked! 😍

You can never have enough sprinkles

Many of the funfetti/confetti cookies I came across used a generous amount of sprinkles in the cookie itself. But the beautiful rainbow of colours is lost, for me, when it’s baked within the cookies. With this in mind, I decided I wanted to roll the cookies in even more sprinkles and so to make them even happier a bake!

Aren’t they just gorgeous?! 🤩

Oh, and as an added bonus, once you’ve popped them in your freezer, you can actually keep them there longer if you wish. This means you can always be under an hour away from enjoying one of these beauties freshly baked. You’re welcome 😇

Colourful and fun chewy confetti chocolate chip cookies EVERYONE will love!

Ingredients

  • 120 g (½ cup + 1 tbsp) unsalted butter

  • 100 g (½ cup) soft light brown sugar

  • 50 g (¼ cup) caster sugar

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 40 g sprinkles, plus extra for rolling

  • 100 g (½ cup + 1 tbsp) chocolate chips

  • 215 g (1 ¼ cups + 1 tbsp) plain (all purpose) flour

  • 2 tsp cornflour (cornstarch)

  • ½ tsp baking powder

  • ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda (baking soda)

  • ½ tsp salt

  • 1 lrg egg, beaten

Directions

  • In a large bowl, beat together butter and sugars until combined. Mix in vanilla. Tip in chocolate chips and sprinkles and stir in. Sift your dry ingredients into your mixing bowl and mix until just combined. Add in your beaten egg and mix until just starting to clump together.
  • Weigh out your cookies to about 90-100g each, then gently press together to form a cookie dough ball. Roll your cookie balls in some more sprinkles, pressing a little to help the sprinkles stick to the dough. Lay your sprinkle covered cookie balls on a baking sheet and pop in the freezer for at least 30 minutes to firm up.
  • About 15 minutes before you’re ready to bake your cookies, preheat your oven to 190C/375F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Place your cold cookies on the baking sheets, leaving enough room for them to spread (I get four cookies to a tray). Bake your cookies for 10-12 minutes until just cracking in the middle of the cookies and just flattening on top. Remove from the oven and leave to cool on the baking sheet for at least half hour (they will continue to cook and firm up too, if you move them fresh from the oven they will just fall apart). Enjoy!
