Bake Some Joy: The Joyful Journey of Red Velvet Cake Mix Cookies

Who doesn’t love cookies? And when those cookies are infused with the velvety goodness of red velvet cake mix, well, you’re in for a treat that’s hard to resist!

What Are Red Velvet Cake Mix Cookies?

The rich, vibrant red hue of red velvet cake, but in cookie form. Yes, you read that right! Red velvet cake mix cookies are like a little slice of happiness in each bite. They’re soft, chewy, and oh-so-delicious. Plus, they’re super easy to make!

Ingredients You’ll Need:

  • 1 box of red velvet cake mix (because, let’s face it, we’re making red velvet cookies here!)
  • 1/2 cup of melted butter (because everything’s better with butter, right?)
  • 2 large eggs (the unsung heroes of baking)
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract (for that extra touch of magic)
  • Powdered sugar for rolling (because we like to keep things sweet)

How to Make Them:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper because nobody likes scrubbing pans after baking.
  2. Mix together the cake mix, melted butter, eggs, and vanilla extract in a large bowl. Pro tip: Use a spatula or wooden spoon for some arm workout and pretend you’re starring in your own cooking show.
  3. Roll the dough into balls about the size of a tablespoon. If you’re feeling fancy, you can use a cookie scoop for perfectly uniform cookies, but no judgment if you prefer the rustic look.
  4. Roll each ball in powdered sugar until it’s completely coated. This step is like giving your cookies a sweet little hug before they hit the oven.
  5. Place the coated balls on the prepared baking sheet, leaving some space between each cookie because nobody likes a crowded cookie party.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for 8-10 minutes, or until the edges are set but the centers are still soft. Remember, every oven is different, so keep an eye on those cookies!
  7. Cool the cookies on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely. This step is crucial unless you enjoy burnt fingertips.
  8. Enjoy your red velvet cake mix cookies with a tall glass of milk, a cup of coffee, or straight out of the cookie jar (we won’t judge).

Why We Love Them:

These cookies are like a little burst of joy in every bite. The rich flavor of red velvet cake combined with the simplicity of a cookie recipe makes them irresistible. Plus, they’re perfect for any occasion – whether you’re baking for a special celebration or just craving a sweet treat on a Tuesday afternoon.


So, the next time you’re in the mood for something sweet, why not whip up a batch of red velvet cake mix cookies? They’re easy, delicious, and guaranteed to put a smile on your face. Happy baking!


Q1: Can I use any brand of red velvet cake mix for these cookies?

A: Absolutely! You can use any brand of red velvet cake mix that you prefer. Just make sure it’s a standard-sized box (usually around 15-18 ounces) for the right proportions in the recipe.

Q2: Can I substitute margarine for butter in this recipe?

A: While you can technically use margarine instead of butter, we recommend sticking with butter for the best flavor and texture. Butter adds a rich, indulgent taste that margarine just can’t match.

Q3: I’m allergic to eggs. Can I still make these cookies?

A: Yes, you can! You can try using a suitable egg substitute like applesauce, mashed banana, or a commercial egg replacer. Keep in mind that the texture and taste may vary slightly from the original recipe.

Q4: Can I freeze the cookie dough to bake later?

A: Absolutely! You can roll the dough into balls, coat them in powdered sugar, and then freeze them on a baking sheet until solid. Once frozen, transfer the dough balls to a freezer bag or airtight container. When you’re ready to bake, simply place the frozen dough balls on a baking sheet and bake as directed, adding a couple of extra minutes to the baking time.

Q5: How long do these cookies stay fresh?

A: These cookies are best enjoyed within 3-4 days of baking for optimal freshness and flavor. Store them in an airtight container at room temperature for the best results. You can also freeze the baked cookies for up to 2-3 months, although they may lose a bit of their texture after thawing.

Q6: Can I add chocolate chips or nuts to the cookie dough?

A: Absolutely! Feel free to customize these cookies to your heart’s content. Chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, chopped nuts, or even sprinkles would all be delicious additions to the dough.

Q7: My cookies turned out too flat. What did I do wrong?

A: If your cookies turned out too flat, it could be due to a couple of reasons. Make sure you’re using fresh ingredients, especially the cake mix and eggs. Also, be careful not to overmix the dough, as this can lead to flat cookies. Finally, make sure your oven is fully preheated and not too hot, as this can cause the cookies to spread too much.

Q8: Can I make these cookies without rolling them in powdered sugar?

A: Of course! Rolling the dough balls in powdered sugar gives the cookies a sweet, slightly crunchy exterior, but you can skip this step if you prefer. The cookies will still be deliciously soft and chewy without the powdered sugar coating.
