How to Make Rainbow Bit Cake Mix Cookies

These cookies need three simple ingredients: rainbow-bit cake mix, butter, and eggs. Combine the three ingredients in a mixing bowl, scoop out the dough, place it on cookie sheets, chill, and bake. It’s that easy!

Very Important!

Cool in the refrigerator (or outside if you live in Alberta) for 10 minutes. The cookies will spread out too much if you skip this step.

Freezing the Cookies

To store these cookies, you can place them into a freezer-safe container with a lid and freeze for up to 3 months. You can also prep the dough ( see my instructions in my chocolate chip cookies recipe for freezing cookie dough and cookies).

Why use Cake Mix?

What makes these Rainbox Bit Cake Mix Cookies so handy is how quickly they can be made. Taking something simple like cake mix, which most people have hanging around, and being able to whip together some cookies in about 20 minutes make these an easy and quick cheater recipe for times when you have unexpected guests coming or you just need a quick dessert for friends or family. I love this hack and highly recommend these as they are super simple and tasty.

Happy baking, everyone! I hope you like them!

Love you more than chocolate,

Karlynn
