Once you add the cake mix and other ingredients, it’s all about combining and baking. Making these cookies for Valentine’s Day is a simple and easy treat everyone will love.

You also have options on how you can serve them. While they’re sweet enough to share, you may want to enjoy them all to yourself!

My boys love when I bake cake mix cookies because this means that they’re ready to go in no time at all. The shorter the waiting time to enjoy, the faster the flavor sensation we all get!

How do I know when the cookies are done baking?

The easiest way to check that cookies are baking is to use a visual inspection. The edges of the cookies should be golden-brown or darker in coloring, while the middle of the cookies shouldn’t have a shine on the top.

You can also use your nose to sniff and smell the cookies. I tend to notice the smell of cookies as the time gets close to them being done baking in the oven.

Also, pressing your thumb down gently in the middle of the cookies is an indicator, too. If the cookie is mushy, they need to bake more.

Those are the best ways to know that cookies are done baking and ready to be taken out of the oven.

Do professional bakers use box cake mix?

Probably not, but this doesn’t mean that you can’t! Most professional bakers will not use shortcuts because they have people paying for them to make all their desserts from scratch.

I love using cake mix because it’s fast and always helps to give the desserts a soft and fluffy texture. No shame in my baking game!

Changing the type of cake mix is also part of the benefit. You can make red velvet cookies, chocolate cake mix cookies, vanilla cake mix cookies, or even birthday cake mix cookies.
