Easy Cake Batter Cookies with Unicorn Chips

Out of all the cookies that I can make by scratch, my daughter likes to ask for these cookies. They are cookies made using boxed cake mix. I call them cake batter cookies. They are delicious and so fast and easy to make. They are also very versatile. You can make them plain or add in whatever you like, such as chocolate chips or candy pieces.

All you need for this recipe is:

  • 1 box of cake mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • optional- about 1 cup of chocolate chips or candy pieces (i.e. M&M’s, crushed up candy bar like a Heath bar, Reese’s pieces, etc.)

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Mix together cake mix, eggs and oil until smooth. Then mix in your chocolate chips or candy pieces until incorporated. Scoop about 2 tablespoons worth of batter on a greased cookie sheet. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes.

For my cookies, I added in these really fun Tollhouse vanilla unicorn chips. I used vanilla flavor cake mix. Here’s how they turned out:

They are delicious and taste exactly like how you would imagine cake batter cookies to taste like. They have a rich flavor. As far as the texture, they turn out soft, not crunchy. They kind of melt in your mouth.

As for the unicorn chips, I found them at Target. They are made by Tollhouse and they have a vanilla flavor. They go together well with the vanilla cake mix.

Give these a try… Happy Baking!
