For the cookie:

  • 1 approx 15 ounce box red velvet cake mix
  • 1 stick 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips optional

For the Frosting:

  • 4 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon heavy whipping cream optional
  • Sprinkles


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 9” cake pan with foil and spray with cooking spray.
  • Using a stand or a hand mixer, beat butter until smooth. Add cake mix, eggs, and vanilla extract and beat until dough forms and no lumps remain. Stir in white chocolate chips.
  • Press cookie dough into prepared pan. Bake for 23-25 minutes, until a toothpick comes out with just a hint of red.
  • Cool completely before removing from pan.
  • Make the frosting: beat cream cheese and butter until smooth. Slowly add powdered sugar and mix until the frosting comes together. Mix in vanilla and heavy cream. The cream is optional, but gives a great richness to your frosting.
  • Pipe frosting onto cookie using a round or 1M tip. Sprinkle with colored sprinkles.
  • This cookie is very thick. You can use a 10” round pan or use 2-9” pans for a thinner cookie.
