Chocolate Cake Mix Cookies are SO gooey and chocolatey! Cake Mix Cookies are such an easy cookie recipe too!
Cake mix cookies are such an EASY cookie recipe. When you use my recipe, they're gooey and soft and no one will ever know they're from a mix!
These cookies have just a four ingredients and it's easy to change up the flavors. Chocolate cake mix cookies become vanilla or spice or red velvet with just the switch of a cake mix. You can use any cake mix to make these cookies, but I love making Duncan Hines Cake Mix Cookies or sometimes I use Pillsbury Devil's Food cake mix. Really, you can use ANY chocolate cake mix you love.
Awhile back, cake mix companies changed the size of the cake mix boxes. Don't worry, this cake mix cookie recipe is written for the new 15.25 ounce size box.
You can fill your cookies with anything you like, but I used chocolate chips. The gooey cookie with the melty chocolate chips are the perfect cure for your chocolate craving. But if you love M&Ms or peanut butter cups, you can use whatever mix-ins you like.
Chocolate Cake Mix Cookies are such an easy cookie recipe with just 4 ingredients!
How do you make cookies from a cake mix?
You just need 4 ingredients:
- Cake Mix, any flavor
- Oil or melted butter
- Mix-ins, like chocolate chips.
So, really, only THREE ingredients if you skip the chocolate chips. But why would you?
Have you ever wondered how to make cake mix better?
My answer to that is MAKE COOKIES OUT OF IT!
When it comes to ingredients, I usually use oil for these cookies because it's easier, but if I want a buttery cookie flavor I'll use melted unsalted butter. I much prefer melted butter in all my cookies because they're easier to mix and the flavor is better.
Another thing I love about these cookies? You can freeze them!
I love freezing cookies to save for later. Then we have cookies all the time and I can make ahead for holidays!
These easy cookies are perfect for any time of year. Enjoy them with a tall glass of milk!
