Let thaw before enjoying.

You can use any brand red velvet cake mix, though I used Betty Crocker.

Ingredients for Red Velvet Cake Mix Cookies

The ingredients for red velvet cake mix are super easy to gather, as there are only three, four if you count the option mix-ins!

You’ll need:

  • standard box of red velvet cake mix, any brand
  • vegetable oil or olive oil
  • 2 eggs
  • sprinkles or chocolate chips to mix in

How to Make Red Velvet Cake Mix Cookies

Start with a large bowl, and dump the red velvet cake mix, two eggs, and the vegetable oil in.

Mix until combined, and then add any additional mix-ins like sprinkles or chocolate chips you might want – it’s up to you how many, but I like to add about 1/2 a cup at this stage.

Scoop a heaping tablespoon of mix out and roll it into a ball, placing it about two inches apart on a baking tray covered in parchment paper or a silicone mat.

I add more sprinkles or chocolate chips at this stage on top of the cookie, as it gives the final cookies a more finished looked – otherwise the mix-ins will just all be blended into the cookie and not necessarily be on top.

Bake at 350F/200C for about 10 minutes, or until the tops of the cookies have started to crack and don’t look like wet cookie dough.

These cookies will be super soft when you take them out and may look uncooked, but take them out and let them cool on the baking tray for 10 minutes and then they will be hard enough to move to a cooling wire track.
