Who knows, but what I do know is that these simple, no fuss, make in about 15 minute cookies are to die for! Try them for yourself, you’ll see what I’m talking about.

How Fabulous is this dough?

Ok, time for these midnight dark Milky Way bars. If you haven’t tried these before, they really don’t taste like dark chocolate and they are soooo much better than the original Milky Ways. Trust me on this one.

Scoop nice scoops of dough onto your silpat liner. Parchment paper works great too.

Press each cookie flat before baking. I like how they bake much better this way.

    Looks so yummy!!! Want to try a make this but I dont know where to get red velvet cake mix here in the Philippines 🙁 any suggestions? Love your recipes 🙂

  2. I LOVE that you used the Milky Way Dark Chocolate Bars in this recipe. You are right they are so much better than the regular Milky Way bars. They are by far one of my favorite candy bars ever. And they look divine in these cookies

    I am just pulling this out of the oven! Just a couple of thoughts…. I used an 18.25 red velvet mix and the dough was very crumbly. I’m thinking next time use a smaller cake mix or melt the butter instead of just softening it. Other than that, these are amazing!

  4. Jolie

    Hi! So my question today is can you make cookie dough out of any cake mix? I thought about making vanilla coconut cookies with vanilla cake mix and coconut flakes.

    1. Jess

      Yes!
      I just made lemon cookies with a lemon cake mix, 1 stick of butter, 1 egg, 2 tbsp oil… came out PERFECT! 🙂

      I always make cookies from cake mixes because they always come out soft and chewy instead of crunchy 🙂 SO amazing.

      Vanilla Coconut sounds heavenly!

  5. wow! This looks amazing! And your photography is amazing! I have to say, i am obsessed with a lot of food blogs, and visit stacks everyday, but I love your blog, and I find myself trying out your recipes all the time. They are simple and they always have extra special bits tucked into them. I am so glad you blog and share! You are the best Jenny!

  6. ’tis the season for red velvet! I’ve got one on my blog today too 😉 These however, look absolutely incredible – may have to try these this weekend, even though I’ve sworn off making cookies for awhile. you’re a bad influence haha

    Hey Jenny! I love your recipes! My PTO asked me to make a Valentine’s Day treat for our school’s social, and I had just read your post. So I used some leftover cookies and cream Santas and white chocolate chips to whip a delicious treat! Thanks for the inspiration! =)

  8. Gerri

    hi may i know how many grams of cake mix did you use? and do i have to sieve it first? thanks!!! 🙂 awesome pics n recipes u’ve got there! cant wait to try this out!

  9. Elisa

    I have to say I was a bit apprehensive about using cake mix for cookies. I haven’t had the best experience with using cake mixes for bases. Buuuuutt these just came out of the oven are amazing!!! The combination of the dark chocolate and semi sweet and the gooeyness of the caramel & nougat oh my!!! Thx for the creation

    The only Red Velvet Cake mix I could find came with a cream cheese filling. I can’t wait for my batch to cool enough to put it on top for a frosting! But the first few cookies are looking SOOOOO good that I just want to burn my tongue and eat them all right now!

  11. Kelly Farmer

    Just a note, I made these today…SOOO GOOOD! I made this with a smaller cake mix, 16.5 and I melted the butter based on the feedback…results are AMAZING!! Thank you!!

  12. Jesse

    I had a problem with some of the caramel getting rock hard, almist burnt. I tried 9 minutes at 400 degrees and was much happier with the texture. I used a red velvet cupcake mix though, which was 12oz…so I think my mix was off a little. Runnier than intended.

    I found these on pinterest and couldn’t wait to try them. But I made a batch tonight and they came out hard as rocks! What did I do wrong?

  14. It’s good to learn a watch usually takes care of itself by
    staying promptly, getting it’s own battery juice, and take any abuse I
    feel important to dish out. As many of us tie
    timepieces on our wrist, we need a wristwatch that doesn’t
    break during a fall. The story in the invention and progression of Swiss watches is intriguing.

    Hi! My cookies came out crunchy when cooled completely. Am I just baking them too long? Or is it possible to overmix cookie batter?

  16. Stephanie

    These are AMAZING!! I make these cookies every Christmas and 4th of July – they are by far my family’s favorite! I do a triple batch and increase the Milky Ways by about 50%. They are ridiculously easy and SO SO SO good!!

  17. Kathy

    The first time I made these, I thought they were too sweet and one dimentional. I made a few minor adjustments and I now think they are fabulous!

    I added a tablespoon of espresso powder and a 1/4 tsp of salt. I used richer chocolate chunks instead of the mini chips. To topthem off, I drizzled melted whit chocolate on top. Beautiful and delicious! You’d never know they started from a box cake mix!
