Aka the EASIEST cookie I’ve ever made! Just like my peanut butter sweethearts, these cookies require minimal clean up (woohoo!!) and can be made in just one bowl. Take a box of devil’s food chocolate cake mix, a couple eggs, butter, a splash of vanilla, and a scoop of flour and you can have homemade cookies in just 10 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.
Devil’s Food Chocolate Cake Mix Cookies
makes about 30 cookies
- 1 box chocolate cake mix (I used pillsbury devil’s food)
- 1 1/2 tbsp all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened to room temp
- 2 eggs
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- sprinkles for rolling (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Add all ingredients to a bowl and mix well with a wooden spoon. 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.
Spill some sprinkles onto a plate. Form dough into tablespoon-sized balls and roll in the sprinkles.
Bake on an ungreased baking sheet for 10 minutes. Let cool on the sheet for another 10 minutes after removing from the oven. Enjoy!
