Hi friends! Wow, it's October already. Can you believe it?! Actually, it's been so unseasonably warm here that it seems more like summer than fall. Since Halloween is at the end of the month, chances are you may be asked to provide treats at some point, so I thought I would share a super simple cookie recipe today. These Easy Halloween Cookies start out with a cake mix, but they taste like they're made from scratch. And, they take only a few minutes to make and bake!
The kids will be on fall break soon, and they seem to be having an especially tough time waiting for it to begin. They've been in school for two months now, so we're all in need of a little vacation right about now!
So, I thought it would nice to have some cookies waiting for them when they came home. Not that baking cookies makes the days go by faster, but there's nothing like inhaling the smell of freshly baked cookies when you come through the door, especially when you're not really expecting it.
And, as much as I love baking from scratch, you just have to take a shortcut now and then. So, that's exactly what I did. I used a devil's food cake mix, which was rich to begin with, and I added a few extras to make the cookies taste even better.
Before the cookies went into the oven, I added some fall sprinkles, candies and a little bit of sugar for some extra sparkle. They only take about 10 minutes to bake, and they taste incredible!
Ingredients for Easy Halloween Cake Mix Cookies
- 1 box of devil's food cake mix
- 1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ⅓ cup coconut oil
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Allow to cool, and enjoy!
The kiddos loved these cookies so much that I made some more the next day, and now there there are only two left, which doesn't surprise me at all!
I'll probably make another batch of these easy cake mix cookies for the kids and their friends on Halloween, or maybe I'll just have them take over. It really is that easy!
Thanks for stopping by. Have a super day!
