Butterscotch Cake-Mix Cookies

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Redneck Epicurean

I love butterscotch. It has such a completely different flavor than caramel. This cookie recipe is easy and the only thing you'd really have to have special is the butterscotch chips. If you're a butterscotch lover like me, a bag of those little chips always stay on the pantry shelf. It is different, tho...it has cocoa powder in it. Number of cookies depends on the size of your tablespoon!

These cookies are very simple and so chewy which is good because we love chewy cookies. I added a bit more butterscotch chips and left out the nuts. Thanks for sharing your recipe!
