It is very rare for me to share recipes here on the blog because in all honesty, I don’t like to cook. I tend to stick with what I know and once I get good at a recipe I like to keep using it. So, you can only imagine how many times I have eaten these cookies!
Getting my kitchen prepped for the holiday season to make baking easier and fun.
These double chocolate cake mix cookies are perfect to bake to send to a class party, deliver to neighbors, or take to your family holiday party. They are a hit with everyone and they pack and transport well.
BUT to make sure they cook perfectly and store well there are 2 tricks that ensure the perfect cookie! I’ve tested it without the tips and the cookies do not cook as awesome.
Did I mention ONLY one 4 ingredients? That’s right! Perfect double chocolate cake mix cookies easy and delicious!
Ingredients for Cake Cookies
- 2 Eggs
- 1/2 cup of Vegetable Oil
- 1 Devils Food Cake Mix
- 1 bag Chocolate Chunks (chocolate lovers use the whole bag)
Mix the eggs and oil together first. Blend them well. Next add in the dry cake mix. Stir until blended. This is trick #1. If you add the dry cake mix in before blending the wet ingredients your cookie texture will not be a great. I like mixing bowls with non skid bottoms.
After the first 3 ingredients are mixed you can then add in your chocolate chunks. Anywhere from 1 cup to the entire bag, depends on how much chocolate you like.
Tip #2, the Nestle brand chocolate chunks are what I have found work best. Regular chocolate chips still taste yummy but the make the cookie super gooey. The chunks hold together during baking but the chips melt and are really messy.
Bake the cookies at 350 degrees for approximately 8-10 mins. My oven is 9 minutes. They cook like brownies and can harden too much if over cooked so keep an eye on your first batch for time.
I always cool my cookies on a vented cooling rack. It makes the cookies cool faster and hold shape well. I’ve just found this amazing cooling rack that will come in handy when baking multiple batches of cookies. Once cooled you can move them to parchment paper or a plate.

- pretty much endless ideas
