Delicious red velvet cake mix cookies with white chocolate chips are easy to make in only 15 minutes with 5 simple ingredients.
While I love baking cookies, sometimes I want a quick and easy cookie recipe.
Cake mix cookies, like these red velvet cookies, are my one of my favorite baking shortcuts–warm, freshly baked cookies in minutes with just a few simple ingredients. Which is why I always keep my pantry stocked with a variety of cake mix.
They taste like a cross between red velvet cake and chocolate chip cookies. So yummy!
You will need…
- Red velvet cake mix – I used Betty Crocker Super Moist Red Velvet Cake Mix. Any brand of cake mix should be fine to use just be sure to check the ounces to make sure it’s relatively the same amount for the recipe.
- Vegetable oil – I used regular vegetable oil, but you could also use avocado oil, light olive oil, or any vegetable oil you prefer. Just be sure to use one with a mild flavor so it doesn’t overpower the flavor of the cookies.
- Large eggs
- Pure vanilla extract
- White chocolate chips– The flavor of the white chocolate chips goes so well with the red velvet cookies that I do not recommend substituting them.
- Measuring cups and spoons
- Mixing bowls
- Mixing spoons
- Parchment paper or silicone baking mats
- Baking sheets
- Cookie scoop
- Wire cooling rack
Here is how to make red velvet cake mix cookies. You can print the full recipe below.
Step 1: Preheat the oven to 350° F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone liners and set aside.
Step 2: In a large mixing bowl combine the cake mix, oil, eggs, and vanilla extract. Stir well.

It is normal for cake mix cookie dough to be very sticky. If you are having trouble working it you can pop your dough in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. This will help!
