Prep: 10 minutesCook: 14 minutesTotal: 1 hour 24 minutes
Servings: 12 servings 1x


  • 1 (15.25oz) box of red velvet cake mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup neutral oil – coconut oil or vegetable oil
  • Optional – 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • Optional – 1 can cream cheese frosting
  • Optional – red food coloring


  1. Whisk together eggs and oil. Pour cake mix into the bowl and fold in with a spatula.
  2. Cover the bowl and chill in the fridge for one hour. Remove from the fridge and preheat the oven to 325F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Using a cookie scoop, scoop out 2 tbsp per cookie until you have 12 balls. Roll each into a tight ball. If desired, roll each ball in sugar.
  4. Place each cookie dough on a baking sheet with lots of space between them – cook in 2 batches if needed. Bake for 12-14 minutes.
  5. Remove from oven and cool completely on a wire rack.  If desired, mix food dye into icing to make pink icing. Spread icing between two cookies to make cookie sandwiches.
