Chocolate Chip Cake Cookies from Complete Cake Mix Magic Cookbook

I recently received a copy of the Complete Cake Mix Magic Cookbook. I honestly never thought of using cake mixes for anything other than cakes. After looking at the 300 recipes in this cookbook I have been missing out on some amazing treats. Oh my goodness I had no idea you could make cheesecake, cookies, rolls, muffins and more with cake mix. After looking at every page of the cookbook twice I decided to start with making cookies. I just could not imagine what a cookie would taste like with cake mix. Well let me tell you they taste AMAZING!! John was home for lunch while I was baking these and he was happy to be the “tester” of the cookies. He said they were great and took a couple back to work with him. These cookies were so dang easy to make. Almost easier than making them from a cookie mix.  I adapted one of the recipes in the cookbook Chunky Chocolate Pecan Cookies with items that we had in the house to make Chocolate Chip Cake Cookies.

Chocolate Chip Cake Cookies

Ingredients
1 package white cake mix
1/2 cup butter ~ Melted
2 eggs
1 tsp Vanilla
1 1/2 cups Chocolate Chips

Directions
Preheat oven to 375 degrees

1. In a mixing bowl, combine cake mix, melted butter, eggs and vanilla. Beat on low speed for a minute or until just smooth. Stir in chocolate chips.

2. Drop dough by rounded tablespoons onto baking sheets, about 2 inches apart. Bake for 10-15 minutes (mine took around 12 minutes)
Cool on baking sheet for 1 minute, then remove to wire rack to cool completely

Variations- I added in peanut butter chips since I had some in the house. You could also add in nuts, white chocolate chips or your favorite cookie topper.
