What kind of cake mix should I use for these cookies?

I tested this recipe using Betty Crocker™ Super Moist™ Favorites Devil’s Food Cake Mix. The cookies are incredibly rich and chocolatey with this cake mix, but feel free to use your favorite kind of chocolate cake mix in a 15¼-ounce box.

What other flavors of cake mix can I use?

Make these cookies with any flavor of cake mix you love, not just chocolate.

Can I use butter instead of oil?

Yes! Use an equal amount of melted butter for best results.

How can I make cake mix cookies more special?

To make these cookies extra special, try turning them into pan-banging cookies. In step 4, tear each ball in half and stack the two pieces. Halfway through baking, remove the cookies from the oven and bang the baking sheet against the countertop. Return the cookies to the oven to finish baking. The cookies will have a wrinkly texture and a satisfying chew.

Just use your favorite chocolate cake mix and voila – delicious cookies in a flash!
