There is absolutely nothing that can beat homemade cookies fresh out of the oven. But sometimes things are just too busy to make them completely from scratch. That’s where the beauty of a cake mix hack comes in…just stir a few simple ingredients together and bake! The results are amazing, and it’s the perfect solution when you’re craving homemade cookies fast!

Though super easy to make, I haven’t mentioned the BEST part about this recipe! Not only are they studded with sweet chocolate chips, but everyone’s favorite cookies, Oreos, are mixed right into the dough.

If I can find a way to incorporate Oreos into a dessert recipe, I will do it! We love these mouth-watering and fluffy Oreo Cupcakes, easy Oreo Fluff and scrumptious Oreo Poke Cake! They are always a huge hit and now we can add these delicious homemade cookies to the list too!

How to Make Homemade Cake Mix Oreo Cookies

  • Chocolate chips: This recipe uses regular mini chocolate chips, but you can add some white chocolate chips or even mint chips for a fun twist.
  • Frosting: What better way to celebrate all the glorious flavors of these cookies than to take them one step further by frosting them! Once the cookies are baked, frost the tops of the cookies with cream cheese frosting made from powdered sugar, butter and cream cheese and a little bit of vanilla extract.
  • Oreos: These cookies use regular chocolate Oreo cookies, but there are so many variations you could try next time. Golden Oreos and Mint Oreos always make delicious cookies. But you could also make red velvet cookies by using Red Velvet Oreos.
  • Whoopie pies: Who doesn’t love a whoopie pie?! Add your favorite vanilla buttercream, Oreo buttercream or cream cheese frosting to the center of two of cookies and voila… you have homemade Oreo whoopie pies.
  • Cake mix: For a triple dose of chocolate, you can use a chocolate cake mix or a box of devil food cake mix instead of the white cake mix to make really delicious triple chocolate cookies.

Can I Freeze These Cookies?

You sure can. Because they are a little more tender and more moist than some cookies, you’ll want to make sure you place a piece of parchment paper or plastic wrap between the layers of cookies before freezing. This will prevent them from sticking together.

Can I Make the Dough in Advance?

These cookies bake up best when the dough is freshly made because it tends to dry out the longer it sits. The great thing is that it only takes 5 minutes of prep time to whip up this cookie dough.

Tips For Baking the Best Homemade Cake Mix Cookies

  • This cookie dough will stick to the bottom of your cookie sheet pan. Even if you’re using parchment paper or a silpat liner, you’ll need to give the cookies about 10 minutes to cool so they will release and easily and not break apart.
  • To ensure even baking, use a small cookie scoop to help you gauge the size of each dough ball. They will bake much more evenly, and the results will be more consistent.
  • You do not have to flatten these cookies out. They will spread out while baking. They will still be slightly fluffy, which is what you’re looking for.
  • Resist over baking. These cookies are ready to come out of the oven when the middle of the cookies no longer look moist, and the edges are just slightly brown.
