Gooey Butter Blue Velvet Cookies

Patriotic Gooey Butter Blue Velvet Cookies - easy and festive! Perfect for 4th of July! { lilluna.com } Ingredients include blue velvet cake box mix, cream cheese, and powdered sugar with creamy frosting and sprinkles!

We are a tid obsessed with Gooey Butter Cookies. It’s a recipe we’ve been making in the family for years and years and is simple and delicious. Whenever I see a new cake mix, I know I need to use it with this recipe because it’s just so good and gives the cookie a little twist from the norm. At this point, we’ve made so many versions of this cookie, but wanted to add to the list and make Gooey Butter Blue Velvet Cookies, and with Independence Day right around the corner I knew I had to do a Patriotic Gooey Butter Cookies version as well (I mean, how could I not?!)

Both versions were delicious, but the kiddos liked the Patriotic version a bit better since it had frosting and sprinkles. I don’t blame them. We brought the rest of the cookies to my son’s Preschool Graduation a week and a half ago and they were devoured pretty quickly. I think the bright color of cookies was very appealing. The taste was too, apparently, since I saw people coming back for seconds a few times. 😉

  1. Can you use any cake mix? My local Walmart was sold out of blue velvet so I just bought the aqua blue funfetti cake mix.

    1. I definitely recommend sticking to the blue velvet cake mix if you want that specific taste, but if you want just blue cookies, any cake mix works. 😉

  2. These look great. I used to do gooey butter cake and cookies when my children were in youth group. Now my grandchildren will love!

  3. 5 stars
    On my list of things to make! Never had blue velvet before but just based off your beautiful pictures, I know when I find it, I’m going to love it!
