Combine two favorite desserts into one fun quick and easy treat!
I had seen this recipe for Jello cookies but decided to try a quicker and easier route. They turned out a bit heavier than regular cookies but still tasted light and cakey with a slight taste of the Jello flavor (this is the 2nd batch; the first one was devoured before I was able to take pictures of them).
In choosing a cake mix, consider the Jello flavor you want to combine it with and the color of cookies you want to try to achieve. For the above I used yellow cake, orange Jello and orange juice. For my first batch I used a white cake mix, blue Jello and water and they came out a lovely light blue color, but less flavor so I used juice in this batch.
- 1 box cake mix
- 1 3oz package of Jello
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup oil
- 1/4 juice or water
- Baking parchment paper or non-stick coating spray.
Mix all ingredients, drop by heaping tablespoons onto cookie sheet and bake 8-15 minutes.
The size of your "heaping tablespoons" determines how many cookies you end up with, but I ended up with 24 using smaller (baking 10 minutes) and 18 using huge tablespoons (baking 15 minutes).
