Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes



  • 1-15.25 oz. box yellow cake mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup butter {melted}
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 1/2 cup miniature chocolate chips, plus more for topping

Chocolate Frosting

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 3 tbsp milk {I used 1%}
  • 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract



  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  2. Combine cake mix, eggs, melted butter and flour in large bowl and mix until completely incorporated.  I like to use a hand held mixer.

  3. Using a medium sized cookie scoop {or heaping tablespoon}, scoop cookies onto a parchment lined cookie sheet.

  4. Bake for 9-11 minutes {or until the cookies are set}, remove from oven and let cool completely on the cookie sheet.  Repeat until all of the dough is baked.

Chocolate Frosting

  1. Combine the first 3 frosting ingredients in a small saucepan over medium heat and whisk until the mixture has melted.  Remove from heat, add powdered sugar, vanilla and whisk until smooth.

  2. Using a heaping teaspoon, pour frosting over cookies.  Spread the frosting out over each cookie so that it is going over the sides. Top with additional mini chocolate chips.

  3. Let frosting set and serve.  Keep your Texas sheet cake cookies in an air tight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.
