Have you ever made cookies with boxed caked mix? If not – you totally need to! Such an easy way to make a large batch of cookies with very few ingredients! Pretty much ANY flavor of box cake mix can be transformed into delicious, soft, chewy cookies.

Plus, you can add in anything else you want – things like chocolate chips, sprinkles, Funfetti, M&Ms or any other type of candy.

For example, these super simple – yet so-good-they’re-almost-sinful Funfetti Chocolate Chip Cake Mix Cookies!

Funfetti Cake Mix Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

All you need is one box of Funfetti cake mix, half a cup of oil, 2 eggs – mix all that together like normal cake batter – then add in one cup of chocolate chips.

Drop cookie mix by the spoonful on a cookie sheet then bake in a preheat 350 degree oven for about 10 minutes.

That’s all there is to it! No mixer, no mess, no fancy ingredients… and you can mix and match ANY flavor of boxed cake mix with any add-ins, candies, chips, etc that YOU want.

Get as crazy as you want with ANY flavor combinations!

Might sound odd, but let me tell ya – they’re delicious!

And made the same way – box of carrot cake mix, 2 eggs, 1/2 cup of oil and a cup of butterscotch chips. Bake for about 10 minutes at 350 degrees.

That’s all there is to making cake mix cookies (also called cake batter cookies) – just add 2 eggs and 1/2 cup of oil to any box of cake mix and TA-DA… cookies!

Crumbl Copycat Cinnamon Swirl Cookies

As I said when at the beginning of this post, this new Crumbl cookie store is about to make me go broke. My goodness, they’re so good!

My favorite?

The Cinnamon Swirl cookie – tastes like a cinnamon bun and coffee cake all in a few delicious bites.

That led me to trying to find a copycat recipe I could make at home BUT I wanted to use boxed cake mix to do it.

I found one!

Coffee Cake Cake Mix Cookies

Now, this is not your normal “just add 2 eggs and 1/2 cup of oil” normal cake mix cookie recipe. It has extra ingredients and requires extra steps, but it DOES use boxed vanilla cake mix.

So very good!

The recipe is here.

I think next time I’ll try boxed coffee cake mix and be able to use less ingredients. I bet it would be very good!
