I love baking! I love baking sweet treats as much as I love eating them. I was really excited to receive a copy of Duncan Hines Complete Cake Mix Magic from RobertRose.ca to review. So far I’ve tried 2 recipes from this cookbook and they were both delicious. I’ll share both of these recipes with you here! This book is packed full of tempting recipes – over 300 of them!
I’ve always been the type to bake a lot to share with family and friends. Now that I’m a mom, I don’t have as much time to spend in the kitchen as I used to. I’m so glad to have received a copy of the Duncan Hines Complete Cake Mix Magic cookbook because it is packed full of delicious recipes that are quick and easy to make.
Who knew you could create so many delicious items with a cake mix?! All of the recipes are easy to follow and call for ingredients that you likely already have in the pantry at home. No one will know that you used a cake box mix instead of spending all afternoon in the kitchen. The recipes taste like you’ve baked them from scratch!
Complete Cake Mix Magic – Chocolate Chip Cake Mix Cookies:
- 1 package (18.25 oz/515 g) white cake mix
- ½ cup butter, melted
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chunks or chips
- Preheat oven to 350 F.
- Grease baking sheets with non-stick cooking spray.
- In a large mixer bowl, combine cake mix, melted butter, eggs and vanilla.
- Beat on low speed for 1 minute or just until smooth.
- Stir in chocolate chips.
- Drop dough by rounded tablespoons onto prepared baking sheets. Give them space to spread while baking.
- Bake for 10 - 15 minutes or until light and golden. I start checking the cookies after about 8 minutes because they burn quickly.
- Cool on baking sheets for 5 minutes, then remove to wire racks and cool completely.

Complete Cake Mix Magic – Chocolate Raspberry Oat Bars:
The second recipe I tried was Chocolate Raspberry Oat Bars. These would make a great treat for breakfast! I was starting to drool just smelling them baking in the oven and I wasn’t the only one! I actually baked these on Halloween night while my husband answered the door for trick or treaters. There were quite a few compliments of “Wow! Something smells delicious in there!”.
- 1 package (18.25 oz/515 g) white cake mix
- 2½ quick-cooking rolled oats
- 1 cup butter, melted
- 1 cup seedless raspberry jam
- 1⅓ cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
- Confectioner's (icing) sugar (optional)
- Preheat oven to 375 F.
- Grease a 13 x 9 inch cake pan.
- In a large bowl, combine cake mix, oats and melted butter, mixing until well blended.
- Press half of crumbles firmly into prepared pan.
- Spread jam evenly over unbaked crust.
- Sprinkle chocolate chips over jam.
- Sprinkle evenly over the chips.
- Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until golden.
- Cool completely in pan on a wire rack.

I’m always amazed how good cake mixes can taste if you doctor them up a bit. This looks like my kind of cookbook!
Wow those sound great! I never heard of using cake mix for cookies either!
The Chocolate Raspberry Almond Oat Bars sound so yummy!
I love baking things with cake mix in it. It adds a lot to a cookie recipe! This looks great. Thanks.
Oh, they sound so darn gooooooooood!!
Why is pecan in the name when there are none in the ingredients?
Hi Connie! When I originally shared this recipe, I had used pecans unaware that my son had a severe allergy to them. I’ve since updated the recipe to go along with the new picture that doesn’t have pecans, I just forgot to change the title. I’ll update that now – thanks!
I Made The Cake Mix Chocolate Chip Cookies And They Are The Best Chocolate Chip CookieS I Have Ever Had! I Have Made Many Varities Too. I Did Watch Carefully To Make Sure They Didn’t Burn. Cooked 10 Mins. Then Added 2 Mins. GREAT! Am Going To Make A Bunch For The Holidays And Freeze Them. Great Job!
Thank you for your feedback, Debbie! So glad to hear that you enjoyed them.
