  • 1 box cake mix (dry ingredients only)
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup mix ins


  • In a bowl mix together the cake mix, vegetable oil and eggs. Then gently fold in the mix ins. The cookies pictured above are made from white cake mix and I used the colorful star sprinkles as the mix in. 
  • Chill in the fridge for about 30 minutes to 1 hour (or upto 4 days). This is an optional step, but I've noticed that the chilled cookie dough is easier to scoop out and also it allows the cookies to spread less while baking. 
  • Once ready to bake the cookies, preheat the oven to 350 F and line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper. Note: the silicone baking mat helps in less spreading of the cookies. 
  • Scoop out the cookie dough and bake for about 10-12 minutes. The cookies are ready to be taken out of the oven when the edges are slightly firm but the middle is still soft and squishy.
  • Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for 10-15 minutes before removing them to a cooling rack. 
  • Cake mix cookies can be stored up to 1 week in an airtight container.
