Red Velvet Cake Mix Cookies

I have just discovered how easy (and frugal) it is to make homemade cookies using cake mixes. Just in time for Valentine’s Day, pick up a box of Red Velvet Cake mix to make a fun snack for your family or child’s class!


Red Velvet Cake Mix Cookies


  • 1 box Red Velvet Cake Mix (I used Duncan Hines)
  • 2 large Eggs
  • 1/3 cup Vegetable Oil
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla Flavoring
  • Powdered Sugar (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Mix together the cake mix, eggs, vegetable oil and vanilla flavoring to form a stiff dough.
  3. Using 2 spoons, drop onto a cookie sheet covered in Parchment Paper. Use the back side of your spoon or the bottom of a glass to flatten the cookies
  4. Bake for 8-10 minutes.
  5. Sprinkle with Powdered Sugar if desired.
  6. **Once the cookies are baked and slightly cooled, you can also use a small cookie cutter to form shapes.**
