Kelly Senyei chief, 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.
Boxcake mix is the ultimate cookie (and banana bread) shortcut because it contains all the essential dry ingredients to form the base for those baked goods: flour, sugar, and leavening agent. Simply add the wet ingredients. Another great advantage is the variety of flavor combinations. If it’s a box mix flavor, it could be a cookie or banana bread!
Kelly calls this cross between red velvet cake and everyone’s favorite cookie “the softest, tastiest, most chocolate chip-filled cookies to ever pass your lips.” So, preheat your oven, get the milk ice cold and get baking!
Remark: You can use any type of red velvet cake mix – just make sure the weight of the box cake mix is 15.25 ounces. Kelly prefers the one with pudding because the resulting cookies are even softer and chewier.
