I did this as a bar cookie with great results. I used a choc cake mix and choc chips as well. Was almost like a brownie in look but with texture. Very enjoyable indeed and quick to make.

Moist cookies, which are very easy to make and everyone will love! My husband even like them and that is saying a great deal, since he passed over his favorite peanut butter cookies for these.
