This is a super easy but delicious cookie recipe you can make with cake mixes. I doubled the recipe, but will post as listed. To make Chocolate Chip-Chocolate Cookies stir 2/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips into the dough. Recipe courtesy of Betty Crocker.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (15 1/4 ounce) box devil's food cake mix
  • 13 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 14 cup sugar


  1. Heat oven to 350. For dark or nonstick pans heat to 325.
  2. In large bowl mix cake mix, oil, vanilla, and eggs with spoon until dough forms.
  3. Refrigerate dough 15 to 30 minutes or as needed for easier handling (I skipped this step--dough was fine without refrigerating).
  4. Shape dough into 1 inch balls and roll in sugar.
  5. On ungreased cookie sheets, place balls about 2 inches apart.
  6. Bake 9 to 11 minutes or until set. Cool 1 minute and remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks.
  7. Cool completely--about 30 minutes and store lightly covered.
