These are the easiest cookies I’ve ever made!  Just like my peanut butter sweethearts, these cookies require minimal clean up and can be made in just one bowl. Take a box of chocolate cake mix, a couple eggs, oil, a splash of vanilla, and a bit of baking powder – and you can have homemade cookies in just 30 minutes.

They are super soft, almost a cross between a fudgy brownie and a chewy cookie. You may leave them plain or roll them in some festive sprinkles, like these tiny hearts for Valentine’s Day.

I also decorated a couple cookies with some red mini M&Ms I had leftover from my rainbow m&m cookies. Feel free to use any sprinkle/candy of choice:

These chocolate cake mix cookies are so easy to make. Soft, chewy, and bursting with chocolate flavor. Cover them in sprinkles for a festive treat!

Ingredients:

  • 1 box chocolate cake mix (I used Pillsbury devil's food)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil, canola oil, or melted coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • sprinkles for rolling (optional)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350F degrees.

Add all ingredients to a bowl and mix well with a rubber spatula. It will take a bit of elbow grease to get it all combined.  If the cookie dough seems too sticky, chill in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes so it is easier to handle.

Pour some sprinkles onto a plate or into a bowl.  Form dough into tablespoon-sized balls and roll in the sprinkles.

Bake on a parchment paper or silicone baking mat-lined baking sheet for 10 minutes. Let cool on the sheet for another 10 minutes after removing from the oven.  Enjoy!

    Hey, Sally. I was kinda curious as to what the omission of the baking powder would have on the cookies…? From what little I’ve been able to grasp since I started baking out of boredom a few weeks ago, the addition of the baking powder makes baked good rise more and the final product would be more cake like, right? So, would leaving the baking powder out make the cookies fudgier…?

    Hi Sally! 

    I made this over the weekend with a friend and i LOVED them, OMG so good!

    I want to make them a little bit chocolate-ier. Do you think I would be able to add choco chips to the recipe? Would they stand up with the dough? Let me know!

      Yes, they would! I’ve made them before with a little over 1 cup of chocolate chips.

    Made these today to share at my mommies group valentines day party. Our little ones loved them and their moms too. They were so easy and cute to make. I’m thinking green sprinkles and green m&m’s for Saint Patrick’s feast day. Thanks for so many great recipes.

    I just made these as a birthday treat for a friend. They’re really good, and so easy to make! The only thing is that mine totally flattened out. They were beautiful and puffy, like yours are in the picture, when I took them out of the oven; and then they totally deflated. Do you know why this might have happened??
