Spice Cool Whip Cookies


These Spice Cool Whip Cookies… you guys! We seriously need to talk about these cookies.

They are amazing. Soft and chewy in the center, sweet with a perfect blend of spice, and only 4 ingredients.

Yes… just 4 ingredients!

Mind. Blown.

Spice Cool Whip Cookies

The secret is to use a Spice Cake mix and some Cool Whip. There’s an egg thrown in there too.

It couldn’t get any easier. My 3 year old daughter loves to help me make these cookies.

Just start by tossing the cake mix, cool whip and egg into a large bowl.

Then use a sturdy spoon to stir it all up.

It will become ridiculously sticky and thick.

Use two spoons or a small cookie scoop to make round teaspoon size balls, then drop the sticky dough into a bowl of powdered sugar. Roll that around (this is where my daughter helped) and place them on a lightly greased, or silicon lined baking sheet.

Once they bake, the powdered sugar coating separates and it makes a gorgeous crackled cookie.

These Spice Cool Whip Cookies are so addictive.

It tastes like Fall and Christmas in one bite. These cookies are definitely making an appearance on my neighbors cookie plates this Holiday season.

The texture of these cookies are a cross between a brownie and a cookie.

An added bonus is the shower of powdered sugar you get all over your clothes when you take a bite.

It’s like Christmas. 😉

  1. I have had these kinds of cookies in several flavors, like lemon or strawberry, but never spice. Great idea!

  2. I’ve made these with lemon cake mix and also orange cake mix. They are SUPER easy, SUPER impressive and NEVER stick around very long.

  3. A brownie and a cookie!! I don’t need anything else everrrr!

  4. YUM! These look super easy. I have everything in the pantry to make these. YAY!

  5. This recipe has been around for so long, i think we have tried every cake mix known to man and they are really good. I have never tried the spice because I won’t eat spice cake. I never buy cake mix or cool whip except when my grand kids want to make these cookies. It is great for kids to help with. I do a homemade variation that is really good try it. You should do good with it also! Let me know if you do. It is simple but the taste is to die for.

    I am like some others – dislike SPICE.

    I used yellow cake mix and added to the balls… some with coconut – some with chopped almond slivers – some with chocolate chips and left some plain — they were unbelievable good! Probably our least favorite was with the almonds.

    Gonna try Triple Chocolate cake mix next. Can’t go wrong with chocolate! :)

  7. Gotta love only 4 ingredients!!

  8. Ok, I’ve never put Cool Whip in cookies and I totally love it!

  9. Only four ingredients?! I’m sold. Have you tried other cake flavors other than spice?
