Texas Sheet Cake Cookies
We are on a roll making fun cake mix cookies. I am loving all of the fun ways you can use a cake mix to make delicious desserts that are not just cakes.
I was cleaning out the pantry (finally) and realized I had multiple chocolate cake mixes that I needed to use fairly soon. I decided to make devil's food cake mix cookies and these Texas Sheet Cake Cookies.
Can you tell I am on a roll making cake mix cookies? They are so easy to make and always turn out soft and delicious.
- Chocolate Cake Mix
- Vegetable Oil
Chocolate Frosting Ingredients
- Cocoa Powder
- Powdered Sugar
Optional add-ins - Chopped pecans, chocolate chips, sprinkles
Butter - room temperature butter will work best for the chocolate frosting.
Large Mixing Bowl - you want to make sure you use a big enough bowl to easily mix the cookie dough
Cookie scoop - the dough will be thick. Using a cookie scoop helps get even cookies
Baking Sheet - I am a klutz so I really like these baking sheets with sides on them.
Don't forget to preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Whisking the eggs in a small bowl before adding them to the cake mix will help everything mix together easier.
The dough will be thick! We use a cookie scoop to get even dough balls.
Prep a baking sheet with parchment paper so you are ready for the dough balls. Spread the dough balls out evenly so there is space for them to flatten out on the prepared baking sheet.
DO NOT OVERBAKE these cookeis! They will be soft and delicious after about 8 minutes in the oven. If you cook them too long they will turn into iced hockey pucks which no one is going to be excited about.
I highly suggest icing these Texas Sheet Cake Cookies on a wire rack over a parchment-lined pan. The melted chocolate icing will drip over the cookies and pool on the parchment paper making it easy to clean up.
Then scoop the icing off the parchment paper with a spoon and enjoy it! It is so good!
