These were so great and so easy! I am almost sad I tried them, because now I may make them all the time and become chubby!! Made chocolate and reese peanut butter chips. Thank you for a great recipe!

I love this recipe! I have tried with tons of different cake mixes always with great results. Spic Cake is a great flavor. I like to make the red velvet ones and call them Roll Tide Reds (Alabama football fans!). I think my favorite are using triple chocolate fudge cake mix with extra white chocolate chips for quadruple chocolate cookies or with butterscotch chips. Ckae mix cookies have completely changed the way I make cookies! I do usually add a little water when I mix the batter beuase otherwise it is super thick and a little hard to stir.

Just made these and added both the chocolate chips (mini ones) and chopped walnuts. Very tasty and quick! I made a similar recipe with sugar free cake mix for my Dad who is diabetic and the recipe works well for that too. Needless to say I didn't add in the chocolate chips for the diabetic version, but you could probably add carob chips if you wanted. Thanks!

Fast, easy and delicious! Thanks for posting. We used a butter yellow cake mix and found it just a bit greasy. Next time we will stick with just plain yellow cake mix or chocolate. We tried chocolate chips mixed with peanut butter chips, and they were great!

I have made these before using dried cranberries or cranraisins. They are delicious!!!

I used a white cake mix and chocolate chips and they were pretty good. They were a little too sweet I think, which apparently I don't mind in cake-form but I didn't enjoy it quite as much as a cookie. I'd like to try these out with other cake mixes, though. Thank you for the recipe!

Excellent recipe. I used lemon flavor and added 1 cup finely chopped walnuts and 1/4 tsp ground ginger. They turned out soft and perfect. Did not spread too much and no burnt or flattened edges.

For someone who says she doesn't bake, this recipe is a life saver! I've made it with just about every combination possible and they always turn out perfect. My favorite so far was yellow cake mix with heath bar bits, everyone was raving about them at Christmas.

Great and easy cookie! The way I make them is to wrap the chocolate cake mix around a Rolo - the caramel melts and makes a wonderful "surprise" in the middle. Also, I only bake mine for 7 min, and then after they've cooled, I sprinkle powdered sugar on top just for presentation. Thanks for posting this!

Is there a specific brand of cake mix used for this recipe? The brand I had was only 16.5 ounces, but I still followed the recipe and the cookie texture was fine but there was a strong oil flavor. Other than that I really enjoy the variety and ease that this recipe offers!
