Oh my. What have I done. I shouldn't have looked this up! I made the recipe and added the 1/2 cup water as others called to do. I also added white chocolate chips and English toffee bits. Baked for 12 minutes, sit for two before moving to cooling rack. They are so good!! Will make again!!!

I am often looking for (a) a quick recipe in the evening to satisfy my hubby's sweet tooth and (b) a recipe that uses ingredients I have on hand. This recipe hits both! I had a box of Betty Crockery Supermoist German Chocolate cake mix, Ghirardelli milk chocolate morsels, and chopped walnuts. I added the suggested extra water (1/3 cup, although in hindsight, more might have been better) along with the recommended ingredients and cooking times. The cookies were a little drier than I would have liked, with a cakelike consistency, but nothing that a little side of milk couldn't fix. Not the most delicious recipe I've ever tried but when you are seeking a quick sweet fix, this fits the bill!

These cookies really are amazing!!! They are very quick to throw together - great for last minute parties or pop-over guests. They are very chocolate-y and delicious. I added a tiny bit of water as the mix was not totally incorporated. It didn't change the cookies a bit (or if it did - then it added yumminess to them!) Thanks for sharing this recipe!
