Sprinkle Chocolate Chip Cookies

I asked the boys what they wanted to do to celebrate moving into our new house and Caleb said go to Disneyland and Maxwell said eat treats. Maxwell’s answer won. I did let Caleb pick the treat though, Maxwell will eat anything with sugar:) Caleb asked if we could make chocolate chip cookies with sprinkles. I loved the idea so we dug through a few boxes to find our sprinkle collection and made Sprinkle Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Prep Time
15 minutes
3 dozen cookies


  • 3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon  vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups chocolate chips
  • 1 1/2 cups sprinkles divided
  • Extra sea salt for sprinkling on cookies if desired


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with a Silpat baking mat or parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and sea salt. Set aside.
  3. Using a stand mixer, cream butter and sugars together for about 3 minutes. Add in the eggs and vanilla and mix until combined. With the mixer on low, slowly add in the dry ingredients. Stir in the chocolate chips. Gently fold in 3/4 cup of the sprinkles.
  4. Form the cookie dough into balls, about 2 tablespoons of dough. Pour the remaining 3/4 cup of sprinkles in a small bowl. Roll the cookies in the sprinkles, covering the entire cookie dough ball. Place on prepared baking sheet, about 2 inches apart. Sprinkle with sea salt, if desired.
  5. Bake cookies for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are slightly golden brown. Remove from oven and let cookies cool on the baking sheet for 2-3 minutes. Transfer to a wire cooling rack and cool completely.
  6. Note-I used rainbow sprinkles, but you can use your favorite sprinkles. The cookies will keep in an airtight container for 3-4 days. You can also freeze the cookies for up to 1 month.

  1. They look so festive and fun! I’ve gotta admit I love sprinkles too – my grandma sometimes took us for ice cream and I’d always get the sprinkles on top. Smart idea on adding something to celebrate to moving, I think it’s always hard to leave a house behind. 

    Have a great week! 

  2. I’m not a huge sprinkle person, so I would most likely put the sprinkles inside the cookies…just the first 3/4 but yeah, I would totally make this.

  3. I made these yesterday. They are really good! I will be honest, I was a little nervous about the amount of flour but the end product was perfect. Our friends asked if they were store bought! And the sprinkles were a hit with my kids!
    Thanks for a great recipe! Adding to my book.

    these came out wonderfully!  not only colorful, but the ratio of chocolate ensured every nibble was delicious. i used a mix of bittersweet (1.5 c) and 60% cocoa (1c) and all the kids and adults were smiling even before we started singing happy birthday to my three year old!  without a doubt, these were a total hit!
