I make basically the same cookies. I have afew differences, instead of margarine, my recipe calls for 2/3 cup oil, I also only use about 1/2 cup chocolate chips. I use a 2 teaspoon scoop and bake them for 8 minutes at 375 degrees. These are my favorite "fast" cookies. So yummy. I have tried many different cake mix flavors, but the fudge is our all time favorite. I just tried the Cinnamon Swirl cake mix last night. I didn't use any chocolate chips or nuts. They are a very simple version of Snickerdoodles. I mixed everything together and then added the cinnamon pouch with a wooden spoon to make it more swirly than combined. They were pretty tasty!

I am typically not a hug fan of mixes. I prefer to bake from scratch unless I am short on time. I had never made cookies from a cake mix. Even though they had a little of that cake mix taste, they still tasted good. They looked good too. I used a cookie scoop for the dough. They spread out perfectly round without getting so flat that they were crispy.

These cookies came out fabulous. I used Andes Creme de Menthe baking pieces and added 2 tsp of instant espresso just because. It worked wonderfully with the dark chocolate cake mix! These far surpassed my expectations.

Yeah- these were good. Used fudge cake mix and mini Reeses pieces. Yummy. Stayed fresh for several days too. Bonus!

So glad I found this recipe. I was looking for a recipe where I had ingredients on hand. I did substitute butter for the margarine, used peanut butter chips instead of chocolate chips, and omitted the nuts. I found I had to use my hand mixer to mix everything (but the chips). The cookies turned out chewy and delicious!

Kiddos love these! I found the recipe on the box of cake mix and make them twice this week. Came in to submit the recipe and it was already here! I took pictures and will add them shortly. I do not add the pecans, use real butter and only 1/2 cup of chips (real milk chocolate ones though, not semi-sweet!)

I found this recipe in the back of the box of a duncan hines chocolate fudge cake mix and it is absolutely delicious. I've made cake mix cookies before but this recipe is by far the best. I made half a batch with nuts and half with only chocolate chips. I also froze some left over dough roled in plastic wrap and simply sliced and baked when company came. I think I will keep frozen cookie dough on a regular basis for such occasions.

This recipe has always been a favorite for my friends and family. It's easy enough that my kids can make them whenever they want a yummy dessert. And my good friend's teenage son won't let me in the door unless I have a plate of these cookies for him! :^) Thanks for posting!
