Firecracker Cookies [recipe]

Well it’s been a minute seen the inner webs have seen this post! Originally shared as a guest post in August of 2014, this is an oldie but goodie! Perfect for your LAST MINUTE fourth plans this weekend or in queue for any other summer festivities, these cookies are a HIT!
Happy Independence Day, Y’all!!

It’s hard to believe that it’s already the end of August & summer is almost over. The days are getting shorter & soon the temperatures will be dropping too. But before we get too carried away, we have one last summer holiday to celebrate – Labor Day!

Every year, on the first Monday in September, we pause our hectic work schedules to squeeze in one last BBQ or summer get together before Fall sets in. 
Today, I’m sharing one of my favorite summer party favorites so you can go out with one last bang! 


If you’re curious what firecracker cookies are like, imagine cake meets cookie…with sprinkles! You won’t want to eat just one, trust me!!



1 french vanilla cake mix
1 tsp baking powder
2 eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine the cake mix & baking powder in a large mixing bowl. 
In a smaller bowl, combine eggs, oil, & vanilla.
Combine both mixtures & stir in sprinkles. 
Drop spoonfuls of batter onto a greased cookie sheet & bake for 10 minutes.
Remove from oven & allow to cool on a cookie sheet.
These sweet little treats are sure to bring a smile to you & your guests!
I am so thankful Nina allowed me to hang out here today & hope to see you over on the blog soon! Here’s to enjoying our last few weeks of summer…Cheers, friends!

Frankly my dear…baby you’re a firework!
