Delish! I sprinkled a little sea salt on them before baking them. Yum.

Cake mix cookies always go over well at my house, and this is no exception. I used butterscotch chips instead of chocolate chips. One daughter liked them, the other didn't like as much as if I had used chocolate. They were nice and soft and went together easily. I didn't read the directions and just scooped the cookies out with my Pampered Chef Cookie Scoop. That still worked fine, so I recommend taking the lazy route and not rolling them into balls! Thanks for sharing!

Good solution when you've got someone pulling on your sleeve for something sweet . Keep a box of cake mix on hand and anytime you can have a treat ready in 10 minutes. Better than keeping packaged junk on hand. Best of all it is NOT healthy or time consuming, so I don't feel inclined to try it.
