Funfetti Cookie Cake

Hey everyone! I'm sorry it's been so long since I last posted.  My life as a graduate student in Biochemistry has been hectic to say the least!

However, I am very pleased to share a brand new recipe: a Funfetti Cookie Cake!  I mean, who doesn't love sprinkles, chocolate, or cookies?

10 tbsp unsalted butter
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 tbsp vanilla
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
3/4 cup funfetti cake mix
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup sprinkles
3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

1. Pull butter out of fridge and let sit at room temperature
2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
3. Cream butter
4. Beat in brown sugar until mostly combined and then beat in granulated sugar. Make sure you scrape down the sides of the bowl.
5. Beat in eggs and vanilla.  It will be very liquidy, but don't worry about it.
6. Beat in baking soda, baking powder, and cake mix.  If you do not have funfetti cake mix, then you can use vanilla or yellow cake mix and add in more sprinkles.
7. Beat in flour, about a 1/3 of a cup at a time.
8. Add in the sprinkles and chocolate chips.
9. Grease a 9" (or 8") cake pan and spoon in the cookie dough. Press flat into the pan.
10. Bake for 30 minutes.
