Dessert Recipes Using Cake Mix

Who needs cake when there’s so much more you can do with the premade mixes? Make a box cake better by putting together desserts simple since you already have most of the dry ingredients done. Need cookies in a hurry? Then whip up 3-ingredient cake mix cookies. You don’t even need to bake cake batter truffles – just stir the ingredients together, form into balls, then bathe in melted candy coating. That’s the same idea with cake batter cracker dip – the mix provides the flavor that you use to spike other ingredients – with this recipe, it’s whipped cream. For something really fun, break out the waffle iron and make cake mix waffles. Any flavor will do!
