Red Velvet Cake Mix Cookies Recipe

These Red Velvet Cake Mix Cookies are soft, chewy & filled with white chocolate chips. There’s only 4 ingredients and they’re the perfect easy red velvet cookie for Christmas or Valentine’s!

Servings: 34 Cookies


1 18 oz box red velvet cake mix*
2/3 cup unsalted butter melted
2 large eggs
a few drops red food coloring optional*
3/4 cup white chocolate chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F degrees & line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper or baking mats.
  2. In a large bowl, beat together the cake mix, melted butter & eggs until smooth.
  3. Optionally, beat in the food coloring for a more vivid red color.
  4. Mix in the chocolate chips. I like to reserve a couple tablespoons for placing on top of each cookie.
  5. Form into balls about 1 – 1.5 tablespoons in size and place 2 inches apart on a lined cookie sheet. I use a cookie scoop for this.
  6. Optionally dot the top of each cookie with a few extra chocolate chips.
  7. Bake for 8-11 minutes, or until the tops look set.
  8. Cool for 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to continue cooling. 

  • Do not prepare the cake mix as directed on the box. 
  • If your box of cake mix is 15oz, I recommend using ⅓ cup melted butter instead. 
  • Using red food coloring will give the cookies a more vivid red color. I used a few drops of red food coloring for the cookies photographed. 
  • Nutrition information is based off of 1 cookie, with the recipe yielding 34 cookies total. 
  • Storage & Makeahead Details: Store cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 4 days. Baked and cooled cookies can be frozen for up to 2 months. Thaw in the fridge overnight. I do not recommend freezing the cookie dough for this recipe.
