It couldn't get any simpler than this!! I was munching on them in no time at all!! Extremely chocolatieeee and a great fix when I was having a major craving...totally hit the spot. I just made them yesterday, and I have gone and bought more devil's food cake mix to make more of these...two boxes actually, just so that I can double the batch...and they look so so so professional!! If you are looking for something quick, but looks great with very little effort...this is the one for you!!! Try it, you won't regret it. 5 +++ stars for taste, presentation and ease!!!

Funny cookie story time... I made 5 different kinds of cookies for my Christmas baking this year, many more complicated recipes, lots of expensive ingredients.. made these last, as sort of an afterthought, was just curious about them. Hands down our favorite cookie! Can't get over it! Going to make more batches, adding peanut butter chips, then using the strawberry cake mix and white chocolate chips. The possibilities boggle the brain! But just as written, they are delicious! (I rolled the balls in granulated sugar) Thanks SOO much for posting this recipe! Update: I made them with the peanut butter chips, and they were awesome, but when I made the strawberry with the white chocolate chips.. well my daughter almost cried! She said they were the best cookies EVER! (2 of her favorite things) A total hit with all who have tried them!
When I made these the chocolate ones were disappearing so fast I decided to make more right then and there. I had a french vanilla cake mix so I made them with it, and rolled them in coconut and a little sugar. EXCELLENT! Both variations didn't last long (our friends were over watching football with my husband, they would clean a plate full and ask when the next would be ready! lol) VERY easy too! ~Lana~
What a fun and easy recipe to do with my toddler. I cracked the eggs and oil into containers, and he poured and mixed. He loves to help in the kitchen, and kept saying "made it" every time he ate a cookie. Thanks KAREN.
I made these tonight with a Moist Pillsbury strawberry cake mix and half a bag of white chocolate chips. I did not roll them in sugar at all. They were AMAZING!!! Some people posted that they were too "cake like" but I think they were over mixing the dough. I could not tell that these were made from a cake mix at all. Next time I think I will try a spice cake mix with raisins. Thanks for posting!!!
I have been making cake mix cookies ever since I was a little girl...so easy to make with endless possibilities. ~ I loved the idea of rolling white cake mix cookies in coconut! My daughters and I made these the other day. Yummy! ~Try substituting a 1/2 softened margarine (or for a crisper cookie, butter) in place of the oil for even more flavor.
OK, all I can say is Mmmmmmmm and EASY! They are still baking and I keep eating them as they come out of the oven. My 17 year old taste tester says "Pretty good Mom". This is a compliment! Of course he keeps eating them too. Instead of oil, I used unsweetened applesauce. I try to do this as much as possible to cut down the fat. They still turned out great and very soft & chewy. I'm thinking that spice cake with applesauce in place of the oil would make a very good applesauce spice cookie. That's next on my list. These will be my cookies of choice for bake sales from now on since I always wait until the last minute to make things. Thank you so much for this recipe. It's definately a keeper!
I made these to bring to work the other day, and they actually caused a "traffic jam" in the break area! I doubled the recipe, ended up with just shy of 5 dozen cookies. I also added a bag of Skor bits to the mix (because I add those to just about every cookie I make). Great recipe for those hour-before-bedtime, "Mom, I volunteered you to make cookies for the party tomorrow" occasions, too.
We make these at work but use brownie mix for them and just subtract a cup of water out of the mix. We use foodservice box size mix.
