3-Ingredient (Jello) Cake Mix Cookies

(This is a two-fer one recipe post...keep scrolling=) 

I love using shortcuts!  And 'doctoring' cake mixes.  These yummy cookies couldn't be easier or tastier. 

I know this recipe is all over the net, but I pinned it from Stephanie at Somewhat Simple

Add chocolate or white chips, toffee, or nuts...frost them and add sprinkles...dust with powdered sugar....whatever suits your cookie lovin' fancy. 

The ones here are chocolate cake mix cookies, and for the pink ones...I added a small box of raspberry jello (sugar free works too) to a white cake mix.  We have also enjoyed cherry jello with a chocolate cake mix. 

All very tasty. I love the chewy centers too. 

I've been making jello cake mix cookies for many years, and the 'regular' cake mix cookie recipe simply doesn't add the jello, so you get to choose to add it, or not.

TIPS:   Be sure to whisk the cake mix before adding anything to get the lumps out. 

Whisk eggs before adding to mix. 


1 (16 - 18 ozs) box cake mix, any flavor
2 eggs
1/3 c. oil

Preheat oven to 350. In medium bowl, blend all ingredients until smooth, stirring by hand (no mixer needed).  Roll into balls. Bake about 10 minutes. Cool 1 minute before removing to rack to cool. 


1 (16 - 18 ozs.) (sugar free) box cake mix
2 eggs
1 small box (4-serv. size) (sugar free) any flavored jello 
Just less than 1/2 c. oil

Preheat oven to 350. 

In medium bowl, blend until smooth. (I use a wooden spoon). Roll into balls (roll in powdered sugar before baking if desired). Bake about 10 minutes. Cool 1 minute before removing to rack to cool.
