- Red Velvet Cake Mix
- Vegetable Oil
- White Chocolate Chips
Step 1 | Combine the Ingredients
- In a large mixing bowl, add the cake mix with the eggs. Mix until fully combined.
- Then add in the vegetable oil.
- Finally add the white chocolate chips.
- Using a cookie scoop place the cookies on a parchment lined baking sheet. Make sure you leave room between the cookies as these will spread.
Baking Tip: If the batter is too soft, chill the dough for about 30 minutes before placing on baking trays.
Step 2 | Chill the Cookies
- Place the baking trays in the refrigerator for about 15 - 20 minutes before baking. This will help the cookies not spread as much.
Step 3 | Baking Instructions
- Bake in a preheated 350°F oven for 10 to 12 minutes. My cookies were done at 12 minutes.
Baking Tip: How to Cool Cookies
- Allow the cookies to cool on the baking pan for a minute or two, and then transfer them to a cooling rack.
- Placing cookies on a cooling rack allows air to travel around the cookie which helps take away the heat.
- If you leave the cookies on the hot baking tray, they continue to cook even though you've removed the trays from the oven.

Tips for Storing Cake Mix Cookies
- Once baked, store the cake mix cookies in air-tight containers for up to two weeks.
- To freeze the cookies, simply place them in a single layer on a baking sheet and “flash freeze” them until they are solid, around 30 to 60 minutes.
- Then place the cookies in an air-tight container with parchment or waxed paper in between each layer to keep the cookies from sticking to each other.
- You can freeze the cookies this way for up to 3 months.
- Add sprinkles - replace the white chocolate chips with rainbow colored sprinkles.
- Milk Chocolate Chips - use your favorite chocolate chip or even a combination of chips in the cookies.
- See another favorite cake box cookie recipe with my White Cake Mix Christmas Cookies recipe. You can easily change the sprinkles to any other season or occasion you're celebrating.
Top Recipe Tips
