Easy Devil’s Food Cake Cookies

These devil’s food cake mix cookies only take a few minutes to stir together, and only a few minutes to disappear!  My kids were begging for dessert first when we made these for our latest family dinner.  They really did get gobbled up by kids and adults alike, so I promised to make more.  And because of how quick and easy they are to make, it’s a promise I can actually keep!  (If only all their requests were this easy.)

How To Make Devil’s Food Cake Mix Cookies

There are three simple options for how your cookies will look…you can scoop it and leave as is (far right pictures), roll the cookie dough in your hands to smooth it out (center picture), or you can roll it and stick a few chocolate chips on top (far left picture).  They will all be equally delicious, but the rolled cookies will have a smoother, prettier look to them.  Unless you’re going for something more rustic, in which case, save a minute by not rolling them!

  1. Choose your favorite box of devil’s food cake mix
  2. Mix together the required ingredients according to the box
  3. Scoop the cake mix onto a baking sheet
  4. Bake for 8-10 minutes at 350 degrees F
  5. Allow the cookies to cool and enjoy

Tip For Making Devil’s Food Cake Mix Cookies

  • To make your cookies all the same size, use a small ice cream scoop to when placing the dough on your cookie sheet
  • If your cookies are burning on the bottom before they are completely cooked, try moving the baking rack up one slot in the oven.  If this doesn’t solve the problem, you may need to buy a new cookie sheet.

Recipe Notes

The last couple of times I made these cookies I made 30...15 per pan.  They were a great size...not too big, not too small.  They baked for 8 minutes and were just a little gooey in the center, which (in our family) is perfect! If you use a small (#60) scoop, you should yield about 3 1/2 dozen cookies.
