Moist and Delish Cookie Cakes ~ Use Your Favorite Cake Mix

These Red Velvet Cookie Cakes are perfect to serve guests during the holiday season or anytime of year. The color of the red velvet is so festive but the other cake flavors are equally delicious! They go great with a cup of coffee or tea or even dunked in a nice cold glass of milk. Be sure to make extra because about a dozen vanished within a few minutes of them  being placed on a plate on the table at our house. Cake mixes tend to go on sale often and there’s almost always a coupon for some brand in the coupon database so these can be an inexpensive and easy dessert that will give the appearance that you slaved away in the kitchen!

The great thing about these cookie cakes is they can be made using any flavor cake mix. Pick your favorite flavor of the day and start baking! Ignore the recipe on the cake mix box and follow the instructions below. The recipe is done the same no matter what kind of cake mix you choose to use for your cookie cakes recipe. The only difference may be the amount of water you need to add to make it easier to mix, which is why I suggest adding small amounts at a time until it’s easy to blend the ingredients together. We have tried the red velvet and devil’s food above. They turned out amazing!

We also made cookie cakes with yellow cake mix and used powdered sugar to roll some and added some cinnamon to the powdered sugar for others. As you can see from the pictures above, they turned out beautiful but they tasted even better! For the holidays you could even add a little color with sprinkles as shown below.

These cookie cakes have a light airy cake texture that is delightful. They are great served just as they are or with ice cream. They are also great with filling as a sandwich type cookie. Be sure to store with some wax paper between layers of cookies. They are so moist that they will stick together if stored stacked like regular cookies!
