How to make cookies out of cake mix


The Best Devil’s Food Cake Mix Cookies!

These double chocolate chip cookies are my secret weapon! Whenever I’m in a pinch to make a dessert for either my family or to take to a gathering, I choose these. They are soft and rich and SO chocolatey. And the secret behind these cookies is that all it takes is a box of devils food cake mix and a few other ingredients.

I remember my mom sharing this recipe with me when I was around twelve. It was a fairly simple recipe to begin baking with. I memorized the recipe real quick, “half a cup of oil and two eggs.” I’ve since added an extra pinch of salt and they’ve only gotten better!

First you’re going to need these 5 ingredients: a devil’s food cake mix, oil- I like to use canola, 2 eggs, salt, and chocolate chips. Thats it!

Once you’ve gathered those ingredients, dump the bag of cake mix into a medium size mixing bowl. I like to add the salt after this step and stir into the dry mix to combine evenly. This gives it a little extra something special, bringing out the rich and chocolatey decadent taste.

After that you simply add the oil and 2 eggs at the same time. Mix thoroughly so that all the egg disappears into the batter. Finally, sprinkle one cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips into the mixture and stir to combine.

Now you’re left with a truly chocolatey gooey cookie dough that just needs to be scooped into about 20 cookies. Bake at 375 degrees for around 12-14 minutes.

Once you pull the cookies out of the oven, let them cool on the pan for around 5 minutes before transferring them to a plate or a wire rack for more cooling.

If you tried this recipe, let me know what you think in the comments! Would you change anything? Maybe add in nuts or chopped up reese’s cups? Yumm! Have fun baking!
