These went quickly at work. I used Orange Supreme cake mix, French Vanilla pudding and mini-M&Ms. Mine also took 15 minutes to bake. (After looking at the time summary above, I think maybe the 5 minutes listed in the directions could be a typo.) This is a possibility for Christmas present bundles. Thanks Laurie!

Super easy and quite tasty. Everyone gobbled these right up. I used a devil's food cake mix without pudding, chocolate pudding and raspberry chips (10 oz). The cookies stay a little chewy since they are more cake-like. The dough is a bit stiff and difficult to mix after a bit. I also had difficulty keeping the chips in the dough. It took 15 minutes to bake my cookies, not the 5 minutes stated in the recipe. I got 70 cookies. Thanks for a super easy recipe.
