These easy red velvet cake mix cookies are chewy, fudgy and shockingly delicious! They taste like a moist red velvet cake combined with a rich chocolate brownie. All you need is 4 ingredients and less than 30 minutes to make these pretty little cookies.

What is red velvet flavor?

Red velvet has a mild chocolate flavor with a distinct tang. It’s made with less cocoa powder than a chocolate cake or cookie would be made with thus giving it a lighter chocolate flavor. The acidity comes from the buttermilk and/or vinegar typically used in the recipe. So the flavor of red velvet is tangy light chocolate.

Why this recipe is so great:

  • Just 4 ingredients and one bowl – All you need is a box of red velvet cake mix, 1/3 cup of vegetable oil, 2 large eggs and a cup of chocolate chips. You can use semi-sweet chocolate or white chocolate chips if you prefer. Mix everything in one bowl, scoop and bake!
  • It can be made by hand or with a stand-mixer – You can make this all in a bowl with a wooden spoon. The batter is quite thick so it does take a little muscle strength or you can let your stand-mixer do all the work.
  • Only takes 10 minutes in the oven – These cookies bake up quickly, so in just 10 minutes, you have freshly baked cookies with puddles of warm melty chocolate.
  • Tastes insanely good! – These gorgeous cocoa-red cookies are chocolaty, soft and chewy, and they have a brownie-like texture to them. They are so good, they’ll keep you coming back for more!

How to make red velvet cake mix cookies:

  1. In a large bowl, mix together the eggs and oil.
  2. Add the cake mix and stir until just combined. Scape down the sides of the bowl and add in the chocolate chips.
  3. Stir until the chocolate chips are evenly mixed in.
  4. Using a medium cookie scoop or tablespoon, drop rounded cookie dough 2″ apart onto a lined baking sheet. Bake at 350F for 10 minutes.

How to store cake mix cookies:

Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3-4 days.

Can you freeze cake mix cookies?

Yes, you can freeze them unbaked or baked. For unbaked cookies – Freeze the cookie dough balls on a cookie sheet for 1 hour or until frozen solid. Then transfer the cookie dough into a freezer ziplock bag and store in the freezer for up to 3 months. Thaw overnight in the fridge and bake for 2 minutes longer. For baked cookies – Place the completely cooled cookies in a freezer-friendly container or ziplock bag and store in the freezer for up to 3 months. Thaw on the counter for 1-2 until it reaches room temperature before serving.
