My Favorite, Quick and Easy Cake Mix Cookies - Written by Tiffany

I found this recipe a few years ago when searching for a quick and easy cookie recipe. I wanted something I could put together in a short time while preparing dinner or shortly after on a busy school night. I've used it so many times, and modified it here and there. Find my version below! My kids love chocolate and cookies. They also love helping out in the kitchen. This is a great kid friendly recipe they can be apart of and enjoy with me. When I first came across this recipe, I was a bit skeptical. I wasn’t sure how these three main ingredients would make a decent cookie. However, they come together in an amazing way. These cookies are soft, fluffy and delicious! They have an under note of the cake flavor you are using, which makes it even better. It’s like eating a slice of cake and a cookie at once. The centers are moist and gooey, while the outsides make for the perfect bite. There are also so many variations you can try. Mix and match to find your favorite.
This recipe was written by my awesome cousin, Tiffany, for EyeLoveKnots! She loves baking and DIYing, and is going to be joining us more often. Want to see something specifically? Drop us a line below!
Prep Time:  10 minutes. Total Time:  20 minutes. Makes About:  24
- 1 box of your favorite cake mix ( I usually use yellow cake mix ,  chocolate is also good)
- 2 large eggs
- ½ cup vegetable oil
- 1 cup chocolate chips ( I usually use semi sweet chocolate chips)

Optional alternatives:
- Your favorite candy bars chopped into small pieces.
- Chopped nuts
- Sprinkles
- Candy-coated chocolate candies
- Chopped cream-filled chocolate cookies

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a baking sheet.
- Combined cake mix, eggs, and oil in a medium mixing bowl. Mix using an electric mixer on medium speed until completely combined. ( I usually mix by hand with a wooden spoon)
  • Add chocolate chips and mix by hand until combined.
  • Drop 1-inch balls onto baking sheet about two inches apart.
  • Bake 8 to 12 minutes, depending on your oven. I usually slightly undercooked mine to make them nice and gooey in the center.
  • Let rest on the cookie sheet for about 2 minutes, then place on parchment paper or cooling rack.
  • Store in an airtight container.
In these pictures, I use mini semi-sweet chocolate chips. Any size will work. I just happen to have the mini ones on hand.
The cookies may appear a bit lighter in color. I look for a slight golden brown around the edges to gage when they are done.
