These cake mix cookies are so simple and require only 5 ingredients. There is no mixer required because it is easy to mix these cookies in a single bowl with a wooden spoon. Less dishes after baking is always nice! These cookies also are soft and almost gooey. It’s a nice twist on an ordinary chocolate chip cookie.

This cake mix cookie recipe called for a yellow cake mix with chocolate chips. A couple weeks ago, I decided to put a twist on it and make the same recipe with a chocolate cake mix and peanut butter chips. It was a revelation! Why have I never thought of this before? There are so many possibilities for this simple recipe now. How about a spice cake cookie with white chocolate chips? Or a devil’s food cookie with butterscotch chips? The only thing you have to do is get adventurous and use a different cake mix and / or add-in.

Here’s the recipe so you can get mixing and matching in your kitchen with this recipe. Give it a try and let me know how it goes!
