Oh my gosh, these are good and so easy. Use your imagination. I stumbled upon this recipe after realizing just how many cake mixes I had in my pantry. I love the flavor the cream cheese gives it. I'm a chocolate chip fiend, so I used a Duncan Hines French Vanilla cake mix and a small package of chocolate chips.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Deliciously sweet and buttery! We used a butter cake mix and added chocolate chips. This, along with the cream cheese, turned these cookies into the ultimate sweet treat. Seriously good!


1 box
cake mix, any flavor
8 oz
cream cheese, room temperature
1/4 c
butter, room temperature
large egg
1 tsp
vanilla (optional, depending on flavor)
1 c
any add-ins (flavored chips, candy, nuts, etc) amounts can be varied. for chocolate chip i added a 12 oz bag of semisweet chips

I used a white cake mix - dried cherries, white chocolate chips and almond extract. My kids loved them and request them now.

I made these using a white cake mix, because for some reason that is all I had (who buys white cake mix?!). Anyway I mixed half a bag of mini semisweet chocolate chips and half a bag mini milk chocolate chips. Yummy!! Tastes like chocolate chip cheese cake cookies.

I have tried several variations of this recipe. It is so easy. The best combo thus far has been Duncan Hines lemon supreme cake mix and white chocolate chips. Delicious! The consistency is definitely cake-like, which I don't mind at all. One of my favorite cookie recipes!
