Delicious easy to make Cake Mix Chocolate Chip Cookies! You won't believe how great these cookies taste.
Cake Mix Chocolate Chip Cookies
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 made 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.
These cookies can be customized with a ton of ingredients! Change out chocolate chips or add in nuts, Reese's Pieces, Peanut butter chips, coconut, pretzels, really anything that sounds good.
Placing the cookie dough in the refrigerator will help produce soft and chewy cookies.
An ice cream scoop is a great way to get even cookies. You can also use two spoons to scoop the dough.
Place the cookies on a rack to cool completely.
You can use a yellow cake mix, vanilla cake mix, or any cake mix flavor that sounds good.
An electric mixer helps get this dough mixed together.
Make sure to use a preheated oven to 350 degrees so the cookies bake evenly.
Parchment lined baking sheets make it easy to remove the cookies.
This is a great recipe the entire family will love!
