Ingredients you’ll need
Here’s a list of ingredients you’ll need to make these cookies. You can find my recipe card at the bottom of this post for the complete list with their amounts.
- 1 box (15.25oz / 432g) vanilla cake mix: I used Betty Crocker – Super Moist French Vanilla Cake Mix.
- Vegetable oil
- Large eggs: You’ll need 2.
- Chocolate chips: Milk, dark, or semi-sweet.
How to make Cake Mix Chocolate Chip Cookies
To make these cookies, simply start by grabbing a large mixing bowl. Mix together the vanilla cake mix, vegetable oil, and eggs until just combined.
Fold in the chocolate chips.
Using a medium cookie scoop, scoop the dough onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
TIP: For looks, top the cookie dough balls with a few extra chocolate chips before baking.
Bake for 10 – 12 minutes. The cookies will be VERY soft, but will firm up as they cool.
Allow to cool on the baking tray for 10 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
The printable recipe card with the FULL list of ingredients and instructions can be found at the bottom of this post.
NOTE: For best results, I highly recommend using the gram measurements (with a digital scale), rather than the cup measurements.
Cup measurements are simply not accurate enough, and I cannot guarantee the best results if you use them.
These Cake Mix Chocolate Chip Cookies are:
- super quick and easy to make
