Today is Caramel Apple Day and I’m bringing some easy Caramel Apple Cake Mix cookies!
Cake Mix cookies are just that: they start with dry cake mix and ingredients are added to make a cookie-like consistency.
These particular cookies are super tasty, but also very sticky! They definitely need to be baked a little longer than other cookies and will need to cool on the pan for another 10 minutes or so until they’ll stay together.
After that, they’re best eaten in a day or two (plan to bring these to a gathering) or they tend to glom together and then everyone is sad.

I am able to find “caramel bits” locally. If these are not available, take wrapped caramels and cut them into small pieces, about the size of a chocolate chip.
Caramel Apple Cake Mix Cookies
1 (15.25 ounce) box white cake mix
½ cup old fashioned oats
4 ounces (7 tablespoons) unsweetened applesauce
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 cup caramel bits
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
Place all of the ingredients except the caramel bits into the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix until completely combined. Stir in the caramel bits.
Use a 2-tablespoon scoop to scoop the dough onto the prepared baking mats. Bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes or until the cookies are lightly browned.
Cool on the pans for a 5-10 minutes before moving to wire racks to cool completely
Makes about 2 ½ dozen cookies
