Tips for Making Devil’s Food Fudge Cookies

Have you witnessed your homemade treats turning out to be nothing but a chocolate puddle? Don’t worry; I also have faced that failure a couple of times. But that should not stop us from trying, especially when we get our hands on this super easy cake mix cookie recipe. Let’s see how we can bake a moist and fluffy chocolate cookie at home.

  1. The important thing is to avoid overbaking the cookies. These are supposed to be soft and moist. Overcooking can take that moist away from them. So, you need to be extra vigilant when the cookies are in the oven. As soon as they are done, quickly remove them from the oven.
  2. When the baking sheet is properly layered with a sheet parchment sheet or a silicone baking mat, it holds the cookies dough in place while it is baked. I would recommend to get yourself a silicone baking mat as it can be used for a variety of cookie and cakes recipes. When the baking sheet is layered well the parchment sheet or silicon mat, it gets easier to remove the cookies once they are baked and cooled.
  3. If you want your cookies to be thick and fluffy, then make sure that you knead the dough and divide it into huge or tall balls, which can be rolled into thick cookies. The thicker thy are, the softer and moister they turn out to be.

How Long Do Cake-mix Cookies Last?

The cake mix can be stored easily for longer use. Whether you are meal prepping or having leftover cookies, when these are stored in a sealed and airtight container, they stay fresh for one week. But to keep them fresh, we need to carefully. Store them.

The first step in this process is to allow the cookies to cool down completely. Leave them in the baking tray or on a wire rack for 15-20 minutes at room temperature. Now they can be stored. When we store warm cookies in a sealed container, they may get mushy in the jar.

The next step is to find a suitable airtight container or use a Ziplock plastic bag to store your cookies. Cookies stale when they are more exposed to the air. So, when you store them, make sure to use a container in which the cookies are less exposed to air.

There is another way to keep the cookies fresh, soft, and moist in the sealed container; that is, you can place a slice of bread in the container. In this way, the cookies will absorb moisture from the bread and will stay moist and soft.

If you want to store these cookies, then avoid placing them in the refrigerator. It is better to keep them on your kitchen counter or in your kitchen cabinet.

Can You Freeze Devil’s Food Fudge Cookies?

The best part is that once you bake a whole batch of devils cookies and you cannot have them at once, you can also store them in your freezer for up to three months. But to do so, you need to properly store them in the freezer. Firstly do not stack them over one another before freezing. The best method is to place the cookies in a single layer in a wide tray and then freeze for 2-3 hours. After that, you can remove the frozen cookies from the tray and then place them in a Ziplock bag to seal them. In this way, you can prevent the cookies from sticking together. To serve the frozen cookies, leave them at room temperature for an hour and then serve.


And that how you make a sweet and warming treat for all the festive celebrations. These cookies are surprisingly soft and moist. You can either serve them fresh from the oven or store them in a jar to serve later. Give this cake mix cookie recipe a try and do let us know about your whole new experience.
