  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • ½ c butter softened
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1 egg
  • Food coloring
  • Powdered sugar
  • Candy Googly Eyeballs


  • Beat butter, vanilla, egg and cream cheese until fluffy.
  • Add the cake mix and stir until smooth.
  • Add food coloring until the dough is the color you want. (I split the dough into two separate bowls and used neon green and pink to make two different colors)
  • Chill dough for 30 minutes before rolling.
  • Roll the dough into balls, dip each ball in powdered sugar to coat and then place on a baking sheet. Keep balls separated a few inches to allow room to spread.
  • Bake at 350F for 10-12 minutes.
  • Push candy eyeballs into the cookies immediately upon removing from the oven.
