I've never made crinkles before and always have trouble with normal cookies coming out hard. We have a Christmas party coming up and I wanted to bring something easy. I had a box of Pillsbury Funfetti cake mix in the cabinet so I figured why not a test run before I go buy something else. They came out awesome! They were so moist and chewy and my boyfriend just loves them. I'll definitely be making this for the party but with the Betty Crocker Supermoist Devils Food cake mix instead. Thanks so much for this recipe!

I have been making these for years. They are very easy to make and a hit with everyone. I changed to Duncan Hines Orange Supreme cake mix for one batch for a party and everyone wanted the recipe.

I have been making this recipe for years, but not rolling them in sugar. Instead I add butterscotch chips to them. Everyone loves the fudgey flavor.

I made these for a Red Hats Christas party and was embarrassed that someone else had made them too - from scratch and they were soooo much better than mine. I did add the vanilla. The flavor wasn't the problem, the fact was that they were way small, and a dull grayish brown, not rich and fudgy looking like the ones made from scratch. Think I'll go back to the old fashioned way. Somethings just don't do well to take short cuts!

I was desperate for a recipe for a cookie exchange happening tomorrow! The recipe I was going to make (No bake chocolate oatmeal cookies -- went totally wrong!!!! ) So this recipe was suggested to me. What I did was put the oven on 360, and cooked for the full 10 min. Instead of rolling the cookies with confectionary sugar on my hands as suggested, I formed the cookie balls, then I rolled them on a plate coating them completely with the sugar that way. I also used just a tad less than 1/4 c. oil. I will be making these again and again and again!!

Very good, easy recipe that is handy because I had all the necessary ingredients right there on hand. The only thing I didn't like was the oiliness of the cookie. Next time I might substitute applesauce for part of the oil and see if that helps. The taste is wonderful!

These cookies were very delicious. I also made these using Red Velvet Cake mix and Butter Pecan cake mix.....both of which turned out delicious as well!!

I thought I had already rated these, as I have made them twice now. Easy, quick recipe. I roll my cookie balls into a sandwich bag with powdered sugar to get it to stick better. Works great. Tasty, "fudgey" recipe that yields A LOT!!

Delicious... I make these for my fiance to take to the guys at work, and they love them! I love them because they're ridiculously cheap to make and they usually make 3 dozen or a little over.
