Chocolate Cake Mix Cookies


  • 1 package of Devil's Food cake mix
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • Sugar (for rolling the dough balls)


1. Begin by preheating your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

2. In a large bowl, thoroughly combine the cake mix, vegetable oil, and eggs. Mix well by hand until a smooth, consistent dough has formed.

3. Take 1-inch sections of the dough and roll them into balls. Then, coat each dough ball in the sugar to add a touch of sweetness to the cookies.

4. Place the coated dough balls on an ungreased cookie sheet, spacing them about 2 inches apart.

5. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven or until set. Because oven temperatures vary, be sure to keep an eye on them to prevent over-baking.
