Devil’s Food Cookies with White Chocolate and Macadamia Nuts

Devil’s Food Cookies with White Chocolate Chips and Macadamia Nuts are one of the latest combinations I have created for my expanding repertoire of cake mix cookies, and they are fast becoming a favorite around here.

These cookies begin with a devil’s food cake mix and have a total of only five ingredients which makes them simple to prepare. They’re a great cookie to bake for the holidays or just for a snack. I love to stick a few into packed lunches as a special treat.

Devil's Food Cake Mix Cookies with White Chocolate Chips and Macadamia Nuts

While it may be possible to make these cookies for less if they were made entirely from scratch, I think that any extra cost is worth the simplicity of not needing to gather and measure all of the cookie ingredients, especially when children are helping with the baking. Even using a boxed cake mix, these cookies are still pretty frugal.

At our local grocery store, we can almost always purchase boxes of cake mix for about eighty-eight cents. Add the cost of the eggs, the oil, and the white chocolate chips, and it’s still pretty inexpensive. Macadamia nuts, however, are fifteen dollars per pound as I write this. Thankfully, I can buy them from the bulk bins which allows me to only buy what I needed. I only needed half of a cup., but this still cost over two dollars which was more than the cost of all of the other ingredients combined. Still, four dollars and change for two dozen cookies is a pretty good price. Besides, I only make this particular cookie for special occasions.

The combination of devil’s food and white chocolate chips is always a good one, but the addition of the chopped macadamia nuts imparts a buttery goodness to the cookies that is unbelievably delicious. If I didn’t make them myself, I would be convinced that these were made with lots of good quality butter.

These cookies are so easy to make. You simply mix up the ingredients, roll them into balls, arrange them on a cookies sheet, and pop them into the oven. In just a few minutes, you have warm, gooey, chocolatey, and nutty goodness. The only challenge is to not eat them all as soon as they come out of the oven. They’re that good.
