Great recipe! I used the 1/4 cup flour and 1 tablespoon of water, but no instant coffee. My son really enjoyed them. Thanks!

GREAT RECIPE! I made this with a yellow cake mix, w/ the choc. chips & they really are excellent. The oatmeal is the secret ingredient in these, & gives 'em a homemade taste & a nice texture. My kids loved these-thanks

YUMMY! I really liked this recipe. Even though I live in Ohio, I also added the flour, and the coffee, and water. I didn't have chocolate chips so I added butterscotch chips. I also added about 2 teaspoons of ground flax seed for the simple fact, that with the chocolate, and the oatmeal, the family would never catch on. and they didn't, and they loved it. This is great because of the ease of the recipe, quickly put together, and taste great. thank you!

These are SO GOOD! Very gooey and the chocolate is all melty, mmmmm! I just realized that I forgot the eggs, OOPS, so used about 6 Tbsp's water or so! My husband said PLEASE make them wrong again next time. There will be a next time (soon!) but I will try it with the eggs.

This was my first cake-mix cookie. There is another much rated mix-cookie recipe on Zaar, but I liked this one because it sounded somehow "different." It's fantastic! I used a stick of melted butter, and added only 2 Tbs flour. (I'm in Houston...no altitude here!) I also used tollhouse mini chocolate chips (all I had) and added a handful of coconut. I baked them for 8 minutes at 350. It IS important to let them cool on the cookie sheets. They literally fall apart if you try to pick one up too soon. But, they firm up nicely and remain blisfully chewy. MMMMM! Try it!

Yum. I was looking for a different kind of cake mix cookie and this really was it. Fast, easy, but still a homemade taste. Warning to those who've never made cake mix cookies, these are soft cookies, the last step of letting them rest 5 minutes is crucial, don't skip this!

These are really good! I needed a sweet for a weekend meal and had planned on making your Blue Ridge Mountains Chocolate Chip cookies, but I was just so tired so went with your Cake mix cookies instead. Great cookies. I think the addition of the instant coffee added flavor and the addition of flour must be what gives them the homemade taste. I am going to be making those Blue Ridge Mountain cookies but I will keep this recipe handy for those extra busy day! Thank you for posting such an easy to make cookie that my family really enjoyed eating.
