Ingredients

  • 1 (18.25 ounce) box red velvet cake mix (I used Duncan Hines)
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil (e.g. canola)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup chocolate chips (I used milk chocolate - white chocolate would work too)

Instructions

  1. Add the cake mix, vegetable oil, and eggs to a large mixing bowl. Using an electric hand mixer, mix until combined. Carefully mix in the chocolate chips (or stir them in). 
  2. Chill dough for 20-30 minutes. I recommend this step because you will get puffier cookies with chilling, but you don't have to chill them.
  3. Meanwhile, preheat your oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat non-stick mat.
  4. Make 2" balls and place them on the baking sheet at least 2" apart. Bake for 11-13 minutes until they're set.
  5. Let them cool for a few minutes on the baking sheet, then transfer to a cooling rack. Once cooled, store cookies in an airtight container.
