Cake mix chocolate chip cookies

After our 4 ingredient chocolate peanut butter cookies were a hit, I thought I would share our family’s favorite cake mix chocolate chip cookie recipe because they also only have 4 ingredients.

Cake mix cookies are a staple in our family because as many of you know… I am a much better chef than a baker. It is impossible to mess up these cake mix cookies.

Seriously anyone can make these and even the kids can help.

Can you tell I like to make things easy on myself?

All you need is oil, eggs, a cake mix, and chocolate chips to make this delicious cake mix chocolate chip cookie recipe. They are easy to make, but they taste great.

Ingredients to make these cookies: cake mix, vegetable oil, eggs and chocolate chips


  • Yellow Cake mix
  • Vegetable oil
  • Eggs
  • Chocolate Chips

How to make cake mix chocolate chip cookies:

First, preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Second, combine all of the ingredients in a mixing bowl except the chocolate chips. Now, the batter will be thick but that is normal.

Next, add the chocolate chips and gently fold them in.

A bowl with the ingredients mixed together in it with a wooden spoon next to it.

Finally, spoon the cookies on baking sheets and leave about 2 inches between each cookie.

The cookie dough scooped onto a cookie sheet with chocolate chips on top.

Bake until the edges start to brown. This normally takes 8-10 minutes. The cookies don’t take long!

Let the cookies cool slightly before removing from the cookie sheet. If you remove too soon, they can crumble. After a few minutes, transfer the cookies to a cooling rack.

More ideas:

  • Substitute white chocolate chips instead of milk chocolate.
  • Peanut Butter morsels taste great combined with the chocolate. Try doing a ¼ cup of each.
  • Dark chocolate chips make another good substitution.
  • Try other types of cake mix instead of yellow cake mix. Try chocolate, strawberry, devil’s food, lemon and more.

  • Now most cake mix cookies recipes turn out “crumbly” which are great but since I wanted this recipe to taste more like “homemade” chocolate chip cookies I added more oil. It was perfect and they turn out delicious every time. In fact, my daughter just took them to school for her birthday and everyone loved them!
  • We save time by using stainless steel scoops! This is much easier than using two spoons and faster too. Plus, I like how each cookie is uniform. You can also try using an ice cream scoop but they are often too big.

I have had mine for several years and I use them for all types of baking. I bought the 3 pack and used the smallest of the 3 scoops for these cake mix chocolate chip cookies (and almost all my cookies) and they were just the right size for adults and kids.

You can use the other sizes for meatballs or to scoop muffin or cupcake batter. I have enjoyed my set over the years. They definitely get plenty of use. I think you will be glad you go them.

How to store:

The cookies need to be stored using an airtight container. This will keep them soft and chewy.

    I do not have any luck with the simple chocolate chip cookie recipes, I need to try these. Thank you

  2. I just made the cake mix chocolate chip cookies and can’t believe how simple and delicious they are! I also added walnuts to them!

  3. 5 stars
    I love how easy and quick this is! The only thing I found wrong was the serving size. I used a small cookie scoop but only got half the amount I should have. Not a huge problem, I’ll keep on making these!
