When you just happen to have a random cake mix in your cupboard and no plans to use it, these Red Velvet Cake Mix Cookies will rescue you! And you get cookies out of the deal! You may not remember why you had that cake mix but you’ll remember these cookies.
These tender red velvet cookies are filled with white chocolate chips and rolled in sugar to give them just a little crispy bite to an otherwise soft cookie.
Why Make Cake Mix Cookies?
There’s no reason NOT to make cake mix cookies. They’re quick and easy to make and you can add endless variations to them. Plus if you bought a mix for some unknown reason then the cookies are a great way to use it up.
One of the best reasons TO make these cookies is that it only makes about 2 dozen cookies, which is the perfect amount for when you want cookies but you don’t want a WHOLE BATCH OF COOKIES.
I don’t know anyone like that but I guess they’re out there somewhere. Right? HA!
Make Red Velvet Cake Mix Cookies Valentine’s Day OR Christmas!
These are nice bright RED Velvet Cookies and they’re perfect for Valentine’s Day OR Christmas Cookies. You can add sprinkles to the top of the cookies for some fun, just don’t roll them in sugar and add sprinkles.
Other Variations for These Red Velvet Cake Mix Cookies:

- use mint chips
- roll in crushed candy canes
- roll in powdered sugar
- don’t roll them in sugar
Can I use ANY Brand of Red Velvet Cake Mix?
I would suppose you can. I haven’t tested it with EVERY brand of cake mix but I would think they’re all just about them the same. Don’t you think? For mine, I used Duncan Hines. It worked perfectly and the cookies were perfect. If you give it a go with another brand, let me know how it works out!
