Kelly Senyei—chef, founder of the Just a Taste blog and author of The Secret Ingredient Cookbook—shares her quick and easy red velvet-flavored chocolate chip cookies made with a genius shortcut ingredient: box cake mix.
Box cake mix is the ultimate shortcut for cookies (and banana bread) because it contains all the essential dry ingredients to form the base for those baked goods: flour, sugar and leavener. Simply add the wet ingredients. Another great thing is the variety of flavor combos. If it’s a box mix flavor, it can become a cookie or banana bread!
Kelly calls this cross between red velvet cake and everyone’s favorite cookie “the softest, chewiest, most chocolate chip-filled cookies to ever cross your lips.” So, preheat your oven, make sure the milk is ice cold and get baking!
Note: You can use any type of red velvet cake mix—just be sure the weight of the box cake mix is 15.25 ounces. Kelly prefers those that include pudding because the resulting cookies are even softer and chewier.
