You just need 4 ingredients:

  • Red velvet cake mix – We used Betty Crocker cake mix but you can use Duncan Hines or any brand would work. Make sure it is the 15.25 oz size.

  • The Batter will come out really thick, but that is ok. I had to help my princess, because it gets hard to mix towards the end. I will also use my stand mixer to help with mixing.

  • Next you are going to use a cookie scoop to scoop up perfectly round red velvet bites and roll them in powered sugar. I highly recommend using a cookie scoop.
  • We have also chilled the dough to make scooping easier. You will thank me later because it saves so much time on spooning out the cookies.
  • Roll cake mix cookie dough into balls.

  • Then roll in the powdered sugar. This was definitely my daughter’s favorite part – how can you not love playing in powdered sugar?

  • Place them on a baking sheet about 2 inches a part. I love to use these baking liners to bake my cookies – they are awesome and your cookies turn out perfect every time.

  • Slightly flatten each cookie with a cup. You can make them as thin as you want, but we just did a little, so they would still plump up nicely.
  • Then bake your cookies.

  • It takes less than 10 minutes until these cookies become these beautiful crinkle red velvet cookies.  Cool completely on a wire rack.
  • You will make about 24-36 cookies depending on how big your cookies are. We made 30 with our small cookies scoop.

Red velvet cake mix cookies are the best:

Whenever we want a sweet treat, we make these cookies because it literally takes minutes. We all can be enjoying these cookies in hardly any time at all.

If you like red velvet recipes, you will go crazy over these delicious cookies. They are so light and fluffy.

Red Velvet cake takes awhile to make but you can enjoy cookies using boxed cake mix in minutes! From start to finish and even clean up, you need less than 30 minutes to make these soft and chewy cookies.

Red Velvet Cake Cookies Variations:

  • Feel free to experiment with the cookies and add chocolate chips, white chocolate chips and more! The white chocolate chips especially look pretty with the red color.
  • You can add in ⅓ cup of white chocolate chips – or you could top with a cream cheese frosting.
  • Another idea is to roll the cookies in white sugar instead of powdered sugar. This really makes the red food coloring pop and look so vibrant.
  • Change the flavor of cake mix and add-ins to change up your cookies.
  • You can also use add in brown sugar. It helps to moistened the cookie. But it is not necessary.
  • I will occasionally add in vanilla extract to enhance the flavors.

I love these cookies because the cake mix makes them so very easy.  No need to fool with lots of ingredients when you can make these easy cookies!

How to store:

These cookies are easy to store. Leave them on our counter in an airtight container for up to 5 days.

During the holidays, I have a designated cookie jar that I keep cookies in it. Perfect for when the kids friends come over. They are always seeing what flavor I have baked.

  1. Sorry, it’s 350 degrees. I have corrected the post. I have tested this with the 15.25 cake mix and it works great too so either size will work!

  2. I haven’t tried it yet but I would mix in 1-2 tablespoon into the mix before baking. I hope you enjoy it!
