    mary winecoff's Note:

    These cookies come from Camilla Saulsbury's Cake Mix Cookies book. My son (age 9) actually made these and they are VERY rich. Kinda a cross between a chocolate cake and a brownie. Perfect for your chocolate lover and very easy to do. Uses a chocolate cake mix.

      Thank you for posting these, Mary! They are rich, gooey and delicious! I didn't have a metal pan, so I used my glass one and they came out great! They are hard to cut though, because they are so chocolately, but delicious none the less. Big hit with my family! Easy too! P.S. I'm eating one right now for breakfast...ssshhhhh!

      Wow! What a hit!! I made these today and offered them to DH, DGS, and 3 contractors/handymen who were working in my home. One guy actually told me that they were the BEST brownies he had ever had in his life! Needless to say, these did not last long around here. Made as directed and everyone loved them. Even tho I'm not a dessert/snack maker - these will be listed in my favorites to make again. Thanks Mary for making me look so good! Made for Zaar Stars.
