Chocolate Cake Mix Cookies are so incredibly easy to make and they are delicious! Four ingredients and 13 minutes is all you need to create decadent and moist cookies that everyone will absolutely love!
Pre-made cake mix recipes have come a long way since they were first introduced to American homemakers in the 1920’s. Just add eggs and oil and a delicious homemade treat could be ready in the hour! We love cake mix cookies around here, from red velvet cookies to classic cake mix cookies. They are so easy!
Easy Cake Mix Cookie Recipe
Nowadays, cake mixes come in dozens of really fun flavors and colors, and along with ready-made frosting! While there is nothing quite like the Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie, making cake batter cookies is so crazy easy!
Cake Box Cookies are a fun recipe to get kids cooking in the kitchen because the only ingredients for cake mix cookies are: cake mix, eggs and oil (you can also add your favorites like nuts, chocolate chips or sprinkles). This chewy chocolate chip cookies recipe calls for an added cup of chocolate chips for a really fancy treat! Once these cake mix chocolate chip cookies are cooled, enjoy them any way you want to with frosting, sprinkles or a scoop of ice cream!
Instead of a traditional birthday cake, try making funfetti cookies! Less mess and easier to handle, especially for the littlest party goers!
How To Make Cookies from Cake Mix
Cake cookies are super easy to put together when you have all the supplies ready to go!
- Preheat the oven.
- Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix.
- Drop onto a parchment lined pan and bake.
Literally as easy as 1,2,3! For a holiday flair, try adding chopped red or green maraschino cherries. Walnuts, pecans or flaked coconut will definitely make the flavor profile pop for these chocolate cake mix cookies!
Be sure to use parchment paper to ensure the cookies won’t stick to the pan (it also helps keep the cookies from browning too much on the bottom).
Cake Mix cookies are tender and moist but I don’t find they keep on the counter very long. Store them in an airtight container (not a cookie jar) for up to 2 days or freeze them for a few months.
