Cake Batter Cookies

I’m on a baking binge. It’s a finals week thing. I wanted to try something new, but I had a couple baking failures in the last week or so and I was feeling a little defeated. I was scrolling through  and found a few pins that explained how to make cookies from boxed cake mix. Sounded pretty easy, so I felt up to it.

They are easy, and I’m so excited about them! There are so many potential combinations with different cake mixes and things to put in them. I made four different kinds, because go big or go home, right?

Cake Batter Cookies


  • 1 box of cake batter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 – 1/2 cup of melted butter

Combine the ingredients. The original posts called for 1/3 cup of melted butter, but I found that it just wasn’t enough liquid for some of the cake mixes. I think it really depends on the box. That’s the mantra for this recipe: It depends on the box.

Once you have mixed your ingredients, feel free to add whatever you want to it! Roll into balls and cook at 350 for 5-10 minutes.

Pro tip: Have some flour to coat your hands in. This batter is much more sticky than your traditional cookie dough.

They turned out so awesome! They are so soft and chewy and amazing. Here are the four different combos that I made:

Confetti Cake Batter With Mini Eggs


Butter Pecan Batter with Skor Bits


Chocolate Batter with Reese’s Pieces


Red Velvet Batter with Chocolate Chips


They are all so great. I think that our favourite was the butter pecan with skor bits. What are some combos that you think would taste good?
