Cake Mix Cookies …such an easy and delicious recipe made with only 3 ingredients! Customize with your favorite mix-in’s!

We’ve shared a few different cake mix cookies, such as the strawberry cookieschocolate mint cookies, grinch cookies and red velvet gooey cookies, but I thought it was about time I shared the original cake mix cookie recipe. Now I’m not sure who the original creator of this recipe is, but I first saw it in a church cookbook I received many years ago and have made many different variations ever since. This cookie is great for when you need to make something quick and don’t have a lot of ingredients. I don’t know about you, but I pretty much always have a box of cake mix, oil and eggs on hand.

How to Make Cake Mix Cookies

Basically all you need to make these cake mix cookies is a box of cake mix, oil and eggs. Then all you’re going to do is mix the ingredients together until the dough is smooth. Then add any mix-in’s if you’d like. I also like to refrigerate the dough, so it’s easier to work with. It tends to be a little stickier than your typical cookie dough because of the oil. You can find the printable recipe below.

Cake Mix Cookies

Prep Time: 10

Cook Time: 10

Total Time: 20

Ingredients:

  • 1 (15.25 ounce) box cake mix
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • Mix-in's: Chocolate chips, M&M's, Rolos, etc. (optional)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with a silicone mat or parchment paper and set aside.

Combine the cake mix, oil and eggs in a large bowl. Stir together until combined. If you have the time, refrigerate the dough for 15-20 minutes (it will make it a little easier to work with, since it is sticky).

Using a medium scoop or spoon, scoop the dough onto the prepared baking mat. Bake for 9-11 minutes, or until the cookies are set. You don't want them to brown. Allow to cool on the pan for a couple minutes and then transfer to a cooling rack.

Once cooled, melt the chocolate and then dip half the cookie into the chocolate. Lay cookies onto a wax paper and add sprinkles if desired.

    I made these cookies and liked them – great for a child’s event. I added a 1/4 coconut, broken pretzel pieces, mini m&m’s, and frozen chopped peanut butter cups.  They were good not as sweet as I would expect.   For Easter I think I’ll make with Easter colored candies and then melt white choc to drizzle on top.  Could you add sugar to the mix to make sweeter?  Just curious if you have tried.

      I haven’t tried, but you could! I would start with just adding a tablespoon or two of sugar to see how it changes the flavor and texture. Of course, the pretzels and coconut could have counter-balanced the sweetness, too, so maybe not add extra sugar to the Easter colored candies batch and see how that goes first? :)

    These should freeze pretty well, shouldn’t they? Also, do you think apple sauce would work as a substitute for the oil? And lastly, about how many cookies will this make? I think I’m going to just make half the recipe and toss them in the freezer.

      I think they would freeze well, I would recommend freezing them the same day the are baked to keep them fresh. Applesauce should substitute great as well. It should make about 2 dozen cookies! Enjoy! :)
