Texas Sheet Cake Cookies

Sharing is caring!

This Texas Sheet Cake Cookies recipe is the softest cookie you will ever eat. They are made with a cake mix and then covered in a simple cooked chocolate frosting. 

If you are a fan of the traditional Texas Sheet Cake then you will ADORE this cookie. 

Any time I can make cookies that use a boxed cake mix and it makes my life easier, I am all for it! These cookies are so delicious and super easy to make. From start to finish, I think it literally took me about 20 minutes to put these cookies together.

You can make them small using a smaller cookie scoop, or you can make them as I did with a medium-sized cookie scoop.

Using a cake mix to make cookies is such a great time-saving tip because they take a small number of ingredients and the cookies are AMAZING!
