Yellow cake mix cookies are the easiest chocolate chip cookie recipe ever. We are a big fan of cake mix desserts as a time saving hack.
It’s a great way to make a dessert that tastes homemade but uses a box of cake mix as the main ingredient: something that most of us have on hand in our pantry!
Ingredients to make yellow cake mix cookies
- a box of yellow cake mix: any brand you like. You will need the 15 oz size
- olive oil or vegetable oil: I prefer olive oil in recipes as I always keep it on hand, but any neutral flavored cooking oil will work in this recipe
- semi sweet chocolate chips
How to make cake mix chocolate chip cookies
Step 1: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Step 2: Mix together the yellow cake mix, oil, and eggs in a bowl. The batter should be thick. Fold the chocolate chips into the batter using a rubber spatula.
Step 3: Place spoonfuls of batter onto a baking sheet, then top with extra chocolate chips on top. I like to use a cookie scoop for this step.
Step 4: Bake the chocolate chip cookies at 350 degrees for 12 – 15 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.
The great thing about this recipe is there are so many fun ways you can change up the flavors!
- Use a flavor of cake mix: try vanilla cake mix, funfetti cake mix, white cake mix, etc.
- Switch up the mix ins: want to try something other than regular chocolate chips? Try spinkles, chopped up candy pieces, butterscotch chips, white chocolate chips, heath bits, reese’s pieces, whatever sounds good!
