Also from a box mix our Lemon Cake Cookies that call for cool whip that are nice and soft with a cake like consistency. Another cookie variation using a cake mix is our Cake Mix Cookie Bars.
- Devil’s Food Cake mix – or your favorite box of cake mix
- Semi-sweet chocolate chips
- Chopped nuts – optional
We also love adding a mini peanut butter cup in the center of the cookie with 2 – 3 minutes left in the baking time.
Chocolate chips can be replaced with white, peanut butter or butterscotch chips.
Sprinkles can be added just before baking for a special birthday or holiday treat.
How to Make Devil’s Food Cookies
Pour cake mix into a large mixing bowl. Mix in additional flour, water, oil and egg. Mix and use a spatula to scrape the edges.
Add semi-sweet chocolate chips and chopped nuts if using. Mix slowly for a short time with an electric mixer or fold in by hand.
Grease a baking sheet or use a non-stick baking mat. Use a cookie scoop or tablespoon to drop cookie dough onto baking sheet. Bake at 325°F for 9 – 10 minutes.
Enjoy these cake mix chocolate cookies warm or at room temperature.
Can These Cookies Be Frozen?
After cookies have cooled to room temperature place on a baking sheet with a non-stick mat. Put sheet in a level place in the freezer until cookies are frozen. Then stack cookies in a freezer safe self-sealing bag and return to the freezer for up to 3 months.

Can I substitute water with fresh milk
Jennifer @ Plowing Through Life
Hello! I haven’t tested this option, but I do think the cookies have a richer flavor with milk. Please let me know if you give it a try. Hope you enjoy 🙂
