Cake Mix Cookies Ingredients
Box Cake Mix – For this recipe, we’re using the red velvet cake mix from Duncan Hines. Everything should still work if you use Betty Crocker instead.
Butter – We need melted butter for our recipe here.
Chocolate Chips – We like using some white chocolate chips for these cookies. It provides a beautiful color contrast!
How to make Red Velvet Cookies with Cake Mix
Mix all of your ingredients into a dough, adding the chocolate chips last.
Place dough balls on a baking sheet, leaving space between the balls so they can flatten out.
Allow your cookies to bake at 375 degrees for 9-11 minutes before letting cool.
First off, you’re going to mix together your cake mix, eggs, and melted butter in a mixing bowl. Once those form into a cohesive dough with that distinctive red velvet color, add your chocolate chips and fold them in.
Now start taking your dough and forming it into 1 inch balls. Set these on an ungreased baking sheet a couple or few inches apart from each other. These cookies are going to need a bit of space- they’re going to flatten out some.
With our cookies all set and spaced, we can finally move them to the oven to bake! Set your baking sheet of cookies into a 375 degree oven. These are going to need about 9-11 minutes to bake and set.
After pulling your cookies from the oven, you’re going to want to let them cool for a bit. First, let them cool a few minutes on the baking sheet before moving them to a wire rack to cool completely. Once cooled, grab a cookie and an optional glass of milk and enjoy!
Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies – For this variation, omit the white chocolate. Mix 1 cup powdered sugar and 1 tsp cornstarch off in a separate bowl. Before placing your dough balls on the sheet, roll them in this sugar mixture to make crinkle cookies!
Frosted Red Velvet Cookies – Again, skip out on the white chocolate chips for this variation. Instead, bake your cookies and top them with a cream cheese frosting after cooking.
