These were excellent. I used the andes mint chips and wow got to love mint and chocolate This was very simple. I did not add the cocnut or rasins.

This sounded so good and my husband loves German Chocolate Cake, so since he is home today...I thought I would make cookies. Then...all I had was a Dark Chocolate Cake mix, and they turned out great! The only other change that I maid was I added only 1/2 C. coconut, and my husband cut up some mini-Almond Joy bars that he added to the top.

Can I say YUMMY?? I'm not usually a fan of cake mix cookies, but these are GREAT! I had a German chocolate cake mix that was very expired, but it smelled okay so I thought I'd try these. :) I blended my oatmeal a bit to make it like quick oats. I didn't measure the coconut or the chocolate chips, just poured some in (probably less than the amounts called for) and I used some butterscotch chips as well. Oh, and I used applesauce instead of oil, and omitted the raisins.
