As you know, I love baking cookies, and I’ve got this fascination with creating my own original cookie recipes. I’ve been pretty damn good at it, lately, too (if I can toot my own horn here, heehee).
Recently, I’ve been wanting red velvet cookies. With decadent white chocolate.
Seriously. HOW can you resist?!
But, I have to admit, I didn’t really want to create a new recipe for this one. I decided to keep it easy. Keep it simple.
Cake mix cookies!
If you’ve never made cake mix cookies before, you are seriously missing out. They’re probably the. easiest. cookie. ever.
No lie. Even easier than pudding cookies, and yet still offers an infinite array of possibilities.
All with only four ingredients (or more depending on how many mix-ins you want to add).
I actually have the basic recipe for cake mix cookies memorized, I’ve made them often enough.
And here I am, sharing this fun recipe with you!
White Chocolate Red Velvet Cake Mix cookies
- 1 box Red Velvet Cake Mix (I used Duncan Hines)
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup white chocolate chips
- Combine powder cake mix, 1/2 cup vegetable oil, both eggs and mix until thoroughly combined.
- Pour in white chocolate chips and stir, until chips are evenly mixed throughout the dough. You may need to press the chips in.
- Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
- While they are cooling, preheat oven to 350°.
- Using a cookie scoop, drop cookie dough balls on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
- Bake for 8-10 minutes.
Much like pudding cookies, the variations are endless with cake mix cookies. I’ve done yellow cake mix with Heath toffee bits (one of hub’s favorites), funfetti cake mix with M & Ms, Chocolate cake mix with peanut butter chips, carrot cake mix with white chocolate chips… the only limit is your imagination!
I might, in the future, develop an original red velvet cookie, but for now, I am content to enjoy the easy-peasy Cake mix version!
