The Perfect Cookie Exchange Cookie

I love to go to cookie exchange parties, and I’m always looking for a cookie that will win them all, and I think this cookie has a pretty good chance.

And, the best part? It only has four ingredients and you can’t beat that.

Making cookies from cake mix makes things so much easier and you won’t be slaving in the kitchen if you decide to make several dozen.

The red velvet cake mix cookies are soft and chewy, so full of flavor, and you got it, made from cake mix.

This is a great recipe because you can make a ton of different flavored cookies from cake mix.

Cake mix cookies are also a great gift for teachers, neighbors, friends, and co-workers.

How Do I Make Cookies From Cake Mix?

  1. Add the cake mix, eggs, and melted butter to a large bowl and mix well.
  2. Next, add the white chocolate chips to the bowl and mix.
  3. Refrigerate for about half an hour.
  4. Scoop onto a cookie sheet, add a few more white chocolate chips to the top and bake for 9-11 minutes.
  5. Cool.

Step-By-Step Instructions

Cake mix and eggs in a glass bowl.

Start by adding the cake mix and eggs to a large bowl.

For this recipe, you can use any type of cake mix. Red velvet is a rich and flavorful cake, but you can also use white, chocolate, or even lemon cake mix.

The sky is the limit with cake mixes.

Next, pour the melted butter into the bowl.

I always try to make sure I let my melted butter cool for a few minutes before pouring it over the eggs because it can cook your eggs (speaking from experience).

You can also pour the butter on the other side of the bowl and you won’t have that issue.

Mix the ingredients and add the white chocolate chips. Stir until combined and refrigerate for at least half an hour.

I like to refrigerate the cookie dough because the cookies won’t turn out quite as flat. After refrigeration, they seem to hold their shape a little better while baking.

Using different chips is another way to change up the recipe. I thought white chocolate chips looked pretty with the red velvet, but you can also use chocolate chips or one of your favorite chips.

After refrigerating the cake mix cookies, scoop them out onto a cookie sheet and bake for 9-11 minutes.

I use a medium-sized scoop and get about 18 cookies with this recipe, but you can use a smaller scoop, as well.

I like to add a few of the white chocolate chips on top, before placing them in the oven because it gives the cookies a little more pop of color when done baking.
