Tips Tricks and FAQs 

  • You can use any brand of cake mix that you prefer. 
  • You can swap out the canola oil for vegetable oil if you prefer. 
  • Do not skip the chilling process in this recipe. This prevents the cookies from spreading too much while baking. 
  • While the chocolate chips are a great edition you may omit them.
  • For a very chunky soft on the inside, crisp on the outside cookie – consider leaving your dough overnight or up to 2 days. The flavor will improve and the texture will be even better!

Red Velvet Cake Mix Cookies
  • If you want a crispier cookie, you will want to increase the baking time to 12 minutes. 
  • When the cookies are done they will still appear soft. These will firm up as they cool. 
  • Feel free to add some additional chocolate chips to the tops of the cookies after you remove them from the oven. 
  • Swap out your milk chocolate chips for white chocolate chips.
