Gradually add the cake mix approximately one cup at a time, stopping to scrape down the sides of the bowl. Batter will be thick. In a separate medium bowl (like a cereal bowl) pour about half of the red sugar sprinkles.
Roll batter into 1" balls, and then roll in the the dough balls in the red sugar sprinkles. Place about 1 dozen cookie balls onto prepared cookie sheets and bake at 350 for 9-10 minutes. While cookies bake, unwrap the kisses, so they are ready to go when cookies come out of the oven.
