Chocolate Cake Mix Cookies

Whip up a batch of scrumptious chocolate chip cookies without all the fuss of measuring. Grab a cake mix, some vegetable oil, and a couple eggs and you’ve got chocolate cookies. Throw in any baking chips you have on hand and there you go. My favorite is the peanut butter chips, but I love the look of those M&Ms in these easy-to-make Chocolate Cake Mix Cookies.

Making Cake Mix Cookies

Using a chocolate cake mix, (like Devil’s Food or Triple Chocolate), alter the directions on the back of the box. We’re not making the cake, just cake-like cookies. Leave out the water and only use 2 eggs. Easy and economical. LOL  Soft cookies (that actually stay soft) are delish, but you don’t have to stop there. If you have any baking chips in your pantry, throw those in, too. Yummy!

Adding baking chips

As you can see, I had a few different baking chips to choose from, so I separated the dough into 3 groups and added different chips to each one. If you want to do the same, make sure you adjust the amount of chips you use, you don’t want more chips than cookie. See the cookies with the peanut butter chips? Those are my favorite, I didn’t share those.

If you love a delicious after dinner mint, you might also like the Andes Creme de Menthe, or toffee bits would be great in here, too. So many choices, but I still love the peanut butter the best. Semi-sweet is also to die for!
