- Some people refer to this as red velvet cookie cake mix. The pictured is the same and this recipe works with any cake mix. I especially like chocolate and red velvet.
- Instead of white chocolate chips, you can use semi-sweet, milk, or dark chocolate chips instead.
- Adapt this recipe to make any kind of cookies. For example, use a chocolate cake mix and white chocolate chips, or a vanilla cake mix with sprinkles.
- Another option is to roll the cookie dough balls in granulated sugar or powdered sugar before baking.
- Make a red velvet cookie sandwich by adding our homemade cream cheese frosting between two cookies. ? YUM.
- If the cookie dough/cake batter is too sticky, refrigerate for 30 minutes. Then it should be good to go!

These cookies look so pretty and easy. I love red velvet cake especially at the holidays, but the cookies would be an easier alternative.
Love love cookies!
I plan to make Red Velvet cookies for Christmas this year. The recipe I was going to use is more labor intense then this one so think I will give this one a try instead. Thans for sharing this simple and yummy looking cookies recipe during such a busy time of year.
My husband loves when I make these cookies (let’s face it… he loves it when I cook anything sweet). I always say I am going tk cook half the batter and freeze the other half (in premade balls). Has anyone ever frozen this recipe for later use?
Since my son has recently moved out, I thought about doing a couple of batches to freeze and send home with him.
These sound very easy and versatile! I love cinnamon chips – might try spice cake mix with cinnamon chips!
I have made cookies from the yellow cake mix but never thought about Christmas cookies. Thanks for the idea–and so easy too.
Love red velvet anything! Can’t wait to try this !!
