Have you ever had a box of cake mix sitting in your pantry when you just don’t feel like eating a cake? I definitely have. I buy cake mix far more often than I’d like to admit, but I don’t use it for cake. I’ve never been a huge cake gal. Even at my wedding I chose to eat cookies instead of our $400 wedding cake. My favorite way to use cake mix then? Turn it into cookies! I love love LOVE turning cake mix into cookies. They come out so soft and moist, it’s dangerous. My favorite this time of year is spice cake mix cookies. It was my parents wedding cake flavor and I’ve always been a fan of all things cinnamon.
Here are some flavor combination ideas:
Spice cake + cream cheese frosting + sprinkle of cinnamon on top (my personal fave!!)
Red velvet cake + cream cheese frosting
Funfetti cake mix + strawberry frosting
Devil’s food cake mix + chocolate frosting
For this recipe you’ll need:
1 box of cake mix in your preferred flavor
2 large eggs
1/3 cup of vegetable oil
1 container frosting of your choice (optional)
Preheat oven to 350° F (or 325° F if using a dark or nonstick pan)
In a medium bowl, combine your cake mix, eggs, and oil.
Refrigerate your dough for 10-15 minutes or until chilled.
Roll dough into 1-inch balls and place on a baking sheet.
Bake for 10-12 minutes or until a knife comes out clean
Let cool until firm and transfer to a cooling rack.
Once completely cooled, frost and decorate according to your preference. Enjoy!
