How to Make these Chocolate Cake Mix Cookies

Mixing bowl with ingredients.

Step 1. Combine all of the ingredients except the chocolate chips.

Step 2. Stir until well combined.

Chocolate chips added to bowl.

Step 3. Fold in the chocolate chips.

Chocolate chips scooped on pan.

Step 4. Scoop dough onto cookie sheets with about 2 inches between the dough balls. I use a cookie dough scoop and it makes the cookie dough balls uniform and the process faster.

Step 5. Bake the cookies until the edges are slightly brown.

Pro Tips:

  • Prepare the pan. Another handy kitchen item I like to use are  baking liners to bake my cookies. Clean up is easy and the cookies turn out perfectly every time!
  • Monitor the cookies baking. Since the cookies are brown, it’s hard to tell when they are done. Make sure to watch them closely while they are baking. They will get slightly brown around the edges when they are done so make sure to pull them out once they are done.
  • Cookie Scoop. Use a cookie scoop to make the cookies uniform.
