Chocolatey & crunchy chocolate chip cookie on a stick made with little to no mess - sign me up! These cookies have it all. They are paleo-friendly, gluten-free, dairy-free, plant-based,, absolutely delicious, and start with a box of cookie mix (but shhh people will never know).
These cookies have all the qualities of a delectable, made from scratch cookie without all the fuss. No hand mixers or extra bowl involved and you probably already have all the ingredients right at home. You can go from cookie craving to fancy chocolate chip cookie pop in hand in about 15 minutes. Here. For. It!
I’ve never been a slice and bake cookie kinda gal. I blame my desire for a challenge and willingness to go the extra mile for a homemade cookie. I think we can all agree that cookies made from scratch typically taste better. Maybe it’s the tender, love, and care that goes into each and every one?
The Best Boxed Cookies
These cookies start off with a box of cookie mix and are probably as close to slice-and-bake as I’ll go in the cookie department. But it’s not just any cookie mix, Simple Mills Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix. I’m a huge Simple Mills fan girl if you didn’t already know. They have a boat load of paleo-friendly, gluten-free mixes like muffins, breads, pancakes, and, yes, cookies. I can attest to the fact that every single one is mind-blowingly scrumptious and super easy to make.
What I like most about using these mixes is that you can make it your own and get a little creative in the kitchen. Something else you may notice about me is that I rarely follow the directions laid out on the back of the box/bag. Again, I have to blame my desire for a challenge but my stubbornness may come into play here too. But hey, when the end product looks like one of these warm, chocolatey masterpieces, I’ll take the stubborn cookie any day.
If you’re not like me and actually want to follow the recipe on the back of the box, go for it! You’ll still make a fabulous cookie. If you want to mix things up a bit, try adding come nut butter in place of the butter or oil. It adds a little more creaminess and a wonderful nut butter taste. Feeling extra like me? Bake them on a lollipop stick and drizzle some melted chocolate on top. Trust me, people will never know it all started with a boxed mix ????.Print
