Packed with sprinkles, crunchy and crisp, and as full of sweet, birthday flavor, these cookie crumbles are such a fun treat. They come together pretty quickly, making them a great option to spruce up any basic recipe (including box mix/store bought!!).They are perfect for layering and topping cakes, ice cream, brownie batter, or even pancakes if you’re feeling a certain way. These crumbles are actually a sneak peak for a recipe I have coming up. Feel free to guess what it will be in the comments. If anyone gets it, I’ll give them a shoutout. In the meantime, these can be made a couple days ahead, so get baking!
- 1/2 c granulated sugar
- 1.5 tbsp light brown sugar
- 3/4 cake flour
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 tbsp rainbow sprinkles
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 1 tbsp vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 300 and line a baking sheet. Whisk sugars, flour, baking powder, salt, and sprinkles in a large bowl. Add oil and vanilla, and then use a spoon to mix until you have a crumbly mixture with no dry flour remaining. Bake for 15 mins until slightly browned. Let cool completely before using.
Tips/Things I Would Change:
- This recipe makes enough for a small cake or to top a dozen cupcakes. If you’re making a bigger spread, or want more to snack on, double/triple the recipe to be safe.
- You actually have to let these cool in order for them to get the proper crunch you want.
- Mix in chocolate chips, mini marshmallows, cereal, pretzels, or a mixture of everything to your cookie crumbles to make a dessert trail mix.
