My confetti cookies are a bright and fun bake and sure to bring a smile to anyone’s face! Soft and chewy, these colourful funfetti chocolate chip cookies are too sweet to resist!
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 😇
Thanks for joining me today, my friends!
Happy baking x
