Red Velvet Cake Mix Crinkle Cookies Recipe From Val's Kitchen

You’ve probably noticed by now that I like products that save me time and energy. There are times when I like to cook from scratch, but then again there are times where there simply aren’t enough hours in the day and I look for ways to save time where I can. Take cake mix, for example. It’s great for a lot of other things besides cake. Here’s a simple recipe calling for only 4 ingredients that turns cake mix into soft and chewy crinkle cookies. These cookies would be great for a Valentine’s Day gathering. Here’s how I make them.

Red Velvet Cake Mix Crinkle Cookies

The recipe makes 18-24 cookies, depending on how large you make the cookies. My batch made 18 nice sized cookies.

  • 16.5 oz box of red velvet cake mix (I used Duncan Hines)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup oil (I used vegetable)
  • 1/4 cup of powdered sugar


Preheat the oven to 350 f.

Place cake mix, eggs and oil in a mixing bowl and combine thoroughly.

Line the cookie sheets with parchment paper.

Place the powered sugar into a smaller bowl.

Form balls with the dough. (I sometimes use a cookie dough scoop or an ice cream scoop, or if I can’t get that quickly I have also used a plastic medicine cup.)

Place each ball into the powdered sugar and rotate to coat completely.

Place the balls onto the cookie sheet.

Bake for 10-11 minutes.

Let sit on the cooling rack for a few minutes before serving.

  1. I’m such a fan of red velvet! I had no idea I could transform a boxed cake mix into such beautiful cookies. I’ve made red velvet crinkle cookies before, but the process was much more labour intensive. This way is much easier. 🙂

  2. I just discovered Crinkle Cookies this year and I am so addicted to them!! Like you I’m all about simple and easy recipes. I don’t always have time to make things from scratch. Life, kids, work. Easiness is good and these will be great for my kids Valentine’s Day class party!

  3. This is so simple to make and love the gorgeous color of the cookies. With two young boys in the house, I would love to save some time making cookies like this. This would be great for the V-day party in my munchkins school this week.

  4. I usually bake from scratch but I admit there are time when cake mixes are life-savers! I love Duncan Hines when I use a mix so I am sure these crinkle cookies would be fabulously delightful!
