‘Tis the season for all things cookies. I love a good cookie recipe, especially my boxed cake mix cookie recipe. It requires minimal ingredients with high quality taste. These boxed cake mix cookies that I have included in this post is, Mint Chocolate, Red Velvet and Snicker-doodle. Cookie making has never been easier!

Snickerdoodle Cookies

These box cake mix cookies are my go-to recipe because they are so easy and cheap to make. They are so versatile and you can ultimately make any kind of cookie you can imagine with a simple box cake mix.

Red Velvet, Mint Chocolate and Snickerdoodle are always my favorite types of cookies to make. I made 3 batches of cookies in under an hour and it took 4 ingredients or LESS. That’s right, only 4 ingredients to get the cookies of your dreams. They are literally fool proof and will come out perfect every single time.
