Chew Chocolate Cake Mix Cookies are a great way to make cookies without all the mess and fuss. We love to make these cookies multiple ways by adding additional toppings or fillings.
One of our other favorites is our Homemade OREO Cookie recipe. Check it out, it’s amazing too!
Cake Mix Cookies were the first cookies I helped teach my younger boys. They were a little or a lot less coordinated than girls for their age so a recipe with very few ingredients was perfect.
And I loved how chewy these Devils Food Cake Mix Cookies are so it was a win win in our home.
How to make Cake Mix Cookies
- Mix the cake mix with eggs and oil
- Dough will be thick
- Use a cookie Scooper to make uniform balls for cookie sheet
- Bake at 350 for 7 minutes
- Cut large marshmallows in half and place ½ of marshmallow on top of each baked cookie and place back into the oven for 1-2 minutes more.
- Drizzle with icing
For this recipe we placed ½ of a large marshmallow on top of each cookie as it comes out of the oven and then throw it back into the oven for 90-120 seconds to melt the marshmallow just a little bit.
Then we pull out the baked cookies and put them on a wire rack to cool.
After they have cooled, drizzle the chocolate ganache in a zig zag pattern over the top. Oh these are good and remind me of when I was a child and my mom made these with me. #memories
