How to Make Cake Mix Cookies

I don’t make many things with cake mixes, but when I do, it’s usually chocolate chip cake mix cookies and it’s usually because I have cake mixed in my pantry that are going to expire. I love buying cake mixes and thinking that I am going to get around to making all sorts of lovely recipes with them – and then reality sets in. No you’re not, Karlynn, because you buy those cake mixes spur of the moment and then they get lost in your pantry until you do a pantry purge. Then you panic. Sounds about right! The type of chocolate chips vary from cookie to cookie, all depending on what I have in the pantry at the time.

  • Preheat your oven to 350 °F.  Get out a 9×13 pan but do not grease.

  •  Combine the first four ingredients in a large bowl. Beat with a hand mixer or stand mixer until smooth and creamy. Stir in the chocolate chips.

  • Pat the dough into the 9×13 cake pan in an even layer.

  • Bake in the oven for 19-22 minutes or until the edges are baked and the middle has JUST set and cooked. You want these fudgy and delicious!

  • Remove and cool for 10 minutes, then slice into cookie bars. Store in an airtight container for 2-3 days at room temp.

Chocolate Chip Cake Mix Cookies Tips & Tricks

  • You can use any type of chocolate chip that you want in these cookies and I mean it. Semi-sweet, white chocolate, cherry, whatever you have lying around the pantry, throw them in!
  • Try to use the Devil’s food cake mix as it is the richest chocolate cake mix out there. It really punches home that chocolate oooomph!
  • I would totally use walnuts in this recipe except I am the only one in my household that likes walnuts in my cookies. Actually, I lied, my 14 year old son will eat anything ( because he’s 14, duh) so he would hoover them up in no time. I need a second job to feed that kid.
  • Don’t over bake the cookies. These are so good because they are chewy from slight under baking. Remember, you only have to get the cookies to 165 °F in order to kill any bacteria from the eggs/flour and you are safe to eat them!
