I have tried a bunch of recipes for cake mix cookies, and this is, by far, my favorite! I have tweaked my technique here and there. This is my go-to when I need cookies in a hurry and I always keep extra boxes of cake mix on hand. They are so quick and easy that they are perfect in a pinch! My little Ella loves to help make these too.
1 boxed cake mix
1/3 cup melted butter
Mix ingredients together in a bowl using a rubber spatula until combined. Roll into 1″ balls and drop onto a greased cookie sheet. Some kinds of cake mixes are a little harder to roll into balls, so just do the best you can. Sometimes I drop them from the spoon onto the cookie sheet and then form them if they are too hard to roll.
Bake at 350 degrees for approx 7 minutes (oven times may vary… the best way to know if your cookies are done is if the bottom is slightly golden and the top is soft but no longer wet).
You can add many different toppings. I poke mine into the top of my cookie balls before I bake them instead of mixing them into the batter. Here is a list of some toppings I have used:
white chocolate chips
cut up candy bars
Or you can add frosting once your cookies have cooked and cooled.
You really can come up with so many delicious combinations! If you come up with any winners, I hope you will be sure to share it here in the comments for the rest of us 🙂
