  • Large Mixing Bowl
  • Cookie Sheet
  • Small Mixing Bowl


  • 15.25 ounces Devil's Food Cake Mix 1 box
  • 2 eggs
  • cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ cup mini chocolate chips


  • ½ cup butter (softened to room temperature)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 5 drops of orange food coloring
  • ½ cup sprinkles (you can change them for any holiday)


  • In a large bowl combine the cake mix, eggs, vegetable oil, vanilla, and baking powder together.
  • Stir until combined.
  • Then fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Chill dough for about 30 minutes so it will be easier to roll into balls, and so the cookies don't flatten out as much when cooking.
  • After chilling, roll into ball and place on a cookie sheet covered in parchment paper or a silpat.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes.
  • Remove from cookie sheet and let cool completely.


  • Beat all of the frosting ingredients together until smooth and creamy.
  • If the frosting is too runny, add a little more powdered sugar. If it's too thick add a little more milk.
  • Spread frosting onto the cooled cookies or you can pipe on the frosting with a decorating bag.
  • Add sprinkles on top.


  • Cake mix cookies often get a bad rap. We do like a good home cooked cookie from scratch with good old home cooking ingredients. But you’ll be surprised how some cake mix cookies are so amazing with a few add ins.
