How To Make Cake Mix Chocolate Chip Cookies
Get Ready – Starting with a yellow cake mix makes these cookies a breeze to make. I like to use yellow cake mix, but white cake mix will also work. You’ll also need oil, eggs, and chocolate chips. Before you start mixing the ingredients, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Mix It Up – Mix the eggs and oil together in a medium-sized bowl until they’re fully blended. Next add the yellow cake mix and the extra flour and stir until combined. After the dough is made, stir in the chocolate chips.
Roll The Dough – Once the dough is mixed together, scoop it out into one inch balls on a cookie sheet. Give them plenty of space to grow as they bake, or they will all end up stuck together. A cookie scoop is always helpful, but you can use a tablespoon instead if you don’t have one on hand.
Bring The Heat – Bake the cookies until they are just slightly browned on the bottom. Let them cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes, then move them to a cooling rack to cool completely.
Best Texture – I added a little bit of flour to the dough to help the texture of the cookies be a little more like traditional chocolate chip cookies.
Best Chocolate Chips To Use – I didn’t quite have enough regular chocolate chips, so I used a mixture of regular size and mini size. The combination of sizes was actually really great and made for more chocolate in each bite. So yummy!
Size Matters – When you roll out the dough balls, you’ll want to make sure they are equally sized. This will help the cookies to cook evenly.
Make’em Fluffy – They key to getting fluffier cookies is to mix the wet ingredients together first, then adding in the dry ingredients from the yellow cake mix.
