Yep, you read that right Red Velvet Cake Mix Cookies. I know you are probably thinking I have lost my mind but just wait until you see this recipe.
You literally use 3 ingredients including Cool Whip to make moist, super yummy cookies! These cookies turned out so moist and soft! I can't wait to try this recipe with other types of cake mix.
Red Velvet Cake Mix Cookies
I was a bit skeptical when I saw the recipes also. I have made cake batter chocolate chip cookies and Funfetti Cake Mix Cookies but this is the first time I have mixed Cool Whip and cake mix to make cookies.
- Red Velvet Cake Mix
- Cool Whip (I used Lite and the cookies turned out great)
Large Mixing Bowl - We are big fans of this glass batter bowl that has a handle. It makes it easy to mix ingredients and keeps the mixing bowl steady on the counter.
Cookie Scoop - A cookie scoop makes it so easy to get consistent cookies that all look great together.
Baking Sheets - We are huge fans of these baking sheets with sides. You don't have to worry; you will remove the cookies from the oven and have them slide right off.
Heat resistant potholders - A couple of years ago we had a fire scare when we didn't realize we had turned a burner on and a cloth potholder caught fire. Thankfully we walked by the kitchen and saw the smoke and were able to get it out ourselves. Since then we have only used these heat-resistant potholders.
The dough for these red velvet Cool Whip cookies is super thick. I had to use the KitchenAid Mixer to get it all combined.
One thing to note dropping your phone in the dough because you are trying to multi-task really does not work very well. I had to pick red dough out of my phone all evening.
I used a spoon and spatula to get the dough onto the Cookie Sheet. This is not a clean easy to use dough, I ended up with red spots all over my hands and fingers working with the dough. It was so worth it when the cookies were done!
