Variations and Substitutions

  • Cake Mix- If you don’t like red velvet cake mix, use a chocolate cake mix in place of it. Using a chocolate cake mix will still give the cookies a wonderful chocolate flavor.
  • Oreo Cookies- This recipe calls for Thin Oreos but any kind of Oreo or flavor would be delicious. Try Golden Oreo, Mint or Dark Chocolate for a fun twist.
  • Chocolate Chips- Combining white chocolate chips with mini semi-sweet chocolate chips is fabulous but any combination would work. Try dark chocolate with milk chocolate for a deep chocolate taste.

How to make this Red Velvet Oreo Cookies with a Cake Mix

1. Combine the red velvet cake mix with flour and whisk to combine. Then add the wet ingredients and mix until the dough is thick. Add Oreo chunks, white chocolate chips and semi-sweet chocolate chips and mix until evenly incorporated.

2. Use a 1/4 measuring cup, measure out the cookie dough and form them into a disc. Place the cookie dough onto a silicone {or parchment} lined baking sheet. Add additional Oreo cookie chunks, white chocolate chips and mini semi-sweet chocolate chips to the top of the cookie to create a beautiful top.

3. Bake the cookies in a 350 degree oven for 10-12 minutes or until the cookies are set around the edges. Note: The middle may appear to be a bit underdone.

4. Allow the cookies to cool completely on the baking sheet. The residual heat from the baking sheet will continue to bake the cookies slightly and set them up perfectly.

Expert Tips

  • Whisk the red velvet cake mix and flour together before adding the wet ingredients.
  • Add additional chunks of Oreo cookies, white chocolate chips and mini semi-sweet chocolate chips to the top of each cookie before baking. This will give you a gorgeous cookie that is full of toppings.
  • Don’t over bake the cookies. Bake the cookies until they are set around the edges and still soft in the middle. Remove from the oven and allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet. The residual heat from the baking sheet will help the cookies set up perfectly.
  • If you want to bake smaller cookies, use a medium cookie scoop and bake the cookies for 8-10 minutes. Doing so will result in a yield of 20-22 smaller cookies.

Recipe FAQs

Can I replace the Oreo cookies with another sandwich cookie?

Yes. The Oreo cookies in this recipe can be replaced with any kind of sandwich cookie that you like. Experiment with different flavors for a fun twist.

What is the best way to store red velvet cookies?

The best way to store red velvet cookies is in an airtight container either at room temperature or in the refrigerator. They will last up to 3 days at room temperature and a day or so longer in the refrigerator.

Can I freeze these cookies?

These Red Velvet Oreo Cookies freeze beautifully for up to 3 months. Store them in an airtight container with layers of parchment {or wax paper} between cookies so that they do not stick together.

How do I get perfectly round cookies?

There are a few ways to achieve perfectly round cookies. Forming them into a disc like we do in this recipe and the Salted Caramel Cheesecake Cookies works great.

Another way to get a round cookie is to use a cookie scoop. If that doesn’t work there is something you can do after baking and while the cookies are still warm.

Use a round cookie cutter that is larger than the cookies. Place the cookie cutter over the misshapen cookie and rotate in a circular motion. This will help the cookie go back into a circle shape.
