With just five simple ingredients, you can get these cookies made and enjoyed! And, don’t give up on the cookies just because they are made with a box mix. I proudly share with you a far-from-scratch recipe that I have come to love. It’s over the top and rich and easy and wonderful.  There is an obscene amount of white chocolate chips and that is just the way I like it.  (You can certainly decrease the amount you use to accommodate your tastes.)Triple Chocolate Devils Food Cake Mix Cookies!

Triple Chocolate Devils Food Cookies Ingredients

Again, these cookies are only five simple ingredients!

Cake Mix: Go out and buy a box of Devil Food Cake Mix for this recipe and don’t apologize for using a box mix!

Wet Ingredients: Either vegetable or canola oil will work in this recipe. And, make sure you are using room-temperature eggs.

Chocolate Chips: I chose to add more white chocolate chips than milk chocolate, but you can definitely do the opposite. Or, just use all of one kind of flavored chip.

How to Make Triple Chocolate Devils Food Cookies

It’s so easy to make these cookies, there really is no excuse not to make them. To make the cookies, first, pour the dry cake mix into a bowl. Next, add the oil and eggs, mixing until well combined. Finally, fold in the chocolate chips. 

Once the cookie dough is ready, use a small ice cream scoop or tablespoon to scoop out small balls. Place about eight on each cookie sheet. I made 24 cookies from this recipe. There is no need to roll the dough between your hands unless you prefer a smoother-looking cookie. They will taste delicious no matter what!

    So true! Great post! (and, BTW, we all thought you were cool from the get-go) XO

  • bridget {bake at 350} says:

    Amen! And not just because I made cookies from a cake mix today. 😉 Look, I’ll take a cake mix over quinoa any day. (Am I still allowed to blog?)

  • Charul @ Tadka Masala says:

    You are so right! In all this hoo-hah of making things from scratch that we actually ignore the genuine effort of the person on the other end. For me, it is the thought that has gone behind baking my favorite cake rather than whether it comes out of a box or your pantry. I don’t care. For that matter I don’t care if it doesn’t taste that good. Its the gesture which is overwhelming.

    And with Indian desserts, trust me, even with the box mixes there is a huge amount of work that is involved, so definitely can’t underestimate it. 🙂

  • Lynn says:

    what kind of oil do you use for these?

  • Margie Fuller says:

    I am a “from scratch” baker (Margie’s Cottage Kitchen). I operate a cottage kitchen, so I sell my baked items. It is my experience that there is NEVER a real comparison between the two. From scratch has always tasted better, and without the added chemicals and preservatives, it’s just nice to know there are fewer ingredients to make an awesome tasting product.

    Also, I feel if my customers are going to pay a nice sum to have me bake a cake, brownies, cookies, or whatever for them, they deserve it to be from scratch. If they wanted a box cake, they could make that themselves. It’s when they go looking for that taste from their grandmother’s famous cake that they come looking for me because a box has never delivered them that same flavor.

    I think many don’t bake from scratch because they are intimidated by the recipe itself, or they don’t want to deal with all of the ingredients. In a pinch, I see no problem with box mixes for those who don’t bake professionally, especially for those on a really tight schedule. It gives them a chance to enjoy the baking process. As a professional baker, my quality promise to my customers is that their product will be made fresh and from scratch.

    Made 3 batches of these. They were so simple to make and were absolutely delightful! Can’t wait to put them out at Christmas!!

      YAY!! Have a wonderful Holiday Season!!

    First of all, you are an inspiration to me! I keep saying how I am going to make a cake decorated with the roses! So beautiful! Also, thank you so much for this post! It was a good one for me, because I am NOT a cake mix lover….but my husband loves cake and keeps on buying them! I put off making them forever and then say silently to myself as I finally do, “I just hate cake mixes!”. Anyway, now you have taught me that there is more to it than the cake mix. Look beyond the cake mix and see the blessings! Family time…eating cake….together. Thank you! I will never complain about a cake mix again. Also, the cookies look fantastic with the white chocolate chips. I think I will be making those with one of the box cake mixes! So glad that I was led to your page. Keep up the great blog posts and beautiful baking!!!

    I have made a variation of these cookies, along with a slew of other cake mix cookies with my sons. It was a great way to introduce them to the kitchen and share my love of baking while being fun.
    I do love my scratch cookies, cakes, and pies but the memories I’ve made with my sons keeps me loving boxed mixes. My 9 year old is now known for his box mix chocolate peanut butter cookies and the look of accomplishment on his face when he hears people raving about them just melts my heart.

  • Patty Montpetit says:

    Very well put! Shouldn’t always be the thought behind it rather than how it was made? Your cookies look delicious. But all you cakes and goodies always look so yummy. You are one talented woman!

  • Priyanka says:

    I really like your recipe and your thoughts behind it.

    For me, living on my own, I find making from scratch is too cumbersome. Don’t get me wrong. I like making from scratch. it gives a sense of accomplishment. However, there is nothing wrong with using a box mix. Sometimes when I want a cake or yummie cookies and I do not have the energy to make from scratch, box cake and cookie mixes make my day..or days (Depending on my self control while eating). So for me, this recipe is great! Thank you!

  • Ihjaz Ahmad says:

    Oh my goodness, this looks delicious! I’m definitely making this! thanks for sharing!

  • Juliarobert says:

    Nice post! i like this chocolate cookies. Thanks for sharing.

  • Carolyn says:

    I make cake mix cookies a lot. I only use Duncan Hines cake mix and butter or Smart Balance instead of oil. My favorite is a white cake mix, use peanut butter instead of butter, 2 eggs, peanut butter chips, 1/2 – 1 cup oatmeal, 1/3 cup brown sugar, and 3-4 tablespoons water depending on how thick the batter is. Same baking directions.

  • Vonnie says:

    I use this recipe ( minus the white and chocolate chips to make chocolate crinkles! MUST use Betty Crocker Devil’s Fiod cake mix! ( Trust me I have tried them all). Chill batter for 30 minutes and shape into balls. Roll in confectioner sugar. Bake at 350 degrees for 8 min. Remove from oven and cool for 5 minutes on baking sheet. Remove from baking sheet to cooling rack for 10 minutes. A bit soft and delicious!!!

  • Cheryl says:

    Not everyone has time to bake from scratch. I use a box mix when making cakes but make homemade frosting. The only cake I make from scratch is pound cake!

  • Karen says:

    Can these be made as bars instead of cookies?
