Recipe Ingredients and Tools





Cake Mix Dessert Recipe and Instructions

For Cookie Batter
1 Box Carrot Cake Mix
1 Box Red Velvet Cake Mix
4 Eggs (divided)
2/3 cup Canola Oil (divided)

Filling
1-8 ounce Cream Cheese in room temperature
1 cup sifted Powdered Sugar
6 tablespoons Butter in room temperature
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract

  1. Have 2 separate mixing bowls, one is for carrot cake mix.  Combine cake mix, 1/3 cup of oil, and 2 eggs together to make carrot cake cookie dough.
  2. In the 2nd mixing bowl, combine red velvet cake mix, 1/3 cup of oil, and 2 eggs together to make red velvet cake cookie dough.
  3. Use a small ice-cream scoop to take about 2 tsp of cookie dough and roll to a ball shape.
  4. Transfer dough to a parchment paper-lined baking sheet (I use a 12" x 17" size baking sheet) leave about 1.5" - 2" space around each cookie dough.
  5. Bake at 350°F for 10-12 minutes, transfer cookies to wire rack to cool at room temperature.
  6. May need to separate 2-3 batches for each batter.
  7. Combine filling ingredients in a mixing bowl and beat at medium speed with a hand mixer to mix everything together until smooth and well combined.  Chill at least 4 hours or overnight.
  8. After cookies are completely cool down, add filling on top of the flat side of a cookie.  Cover it with another cookie, flat side down on the filling.  Repeat this step to make the rest of sandwich cookies.  ENJOY!
