"I was introduced to cake mix cookies in college, but no recipe I've ever used compares to this one. I found it on the Duncan Hines dark chocolate fudge cake mix about 6 years ago. It might still be on them. I tried substituting the cake mix with another brand but it just wasn't quite as good."
Serving Size: 1 (1012 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 1
"I make basically the same cookies. I have afew differences, instead of margarine, my recipe calls for 2/3 cup oil, I also only use about 1/2 cup chocolate chips. I use a 2 teaspoon scoop and bake them for 8 minutes at 375 degrees. These are my favorite "fast" cookies. So yummy. I have tried many different cake mix flavors, but the fudge is our all time favorite. I just tried the Cinnamon Swirl cake mix last night. I didn't use any chocolate chips or nuts. They are a very simple version of Snickerdoodles. I mixed everything together and then added the cinnamon pouch with a wooden spoon to make it more swirly than combined. They were pretty tasty!"
"I am typically not a hug fan of mixes. I prefer to bake from scratch unless I am short on time. I had never made cookies from a cake mix. Even though they had a little of that cake mix taste, they still tasted good. They looked good too. I used a cookie scoop for the dough. They spread out perfectly round without getting so flat that they were crispy."
"These cookies came out fabulous. I used Andes Creme de Menthe baking pieces and added 2 tsp of instant espresso just because. It worked wonderfully with the dark chocolate cake mix! These far surpassed my expectations."
"Yeah- these were good. Used fudge cake mix and mini Reeses pieces. Yummy. Stayed fresh for several days too. Bonus!"
"So glad I found this recipe. I was looking for a recipe where I had ingredients on hand. I did substitute butter for the margarine, used peanut butter chips instead of chocolate chips, and omitted the nuts. I found I had to use my hand mixer to mix everything (but the chips). The cookies turned out chewy and delicious!"
"YUM!! rave reviews all around. my mom, who hates cake mix, loved these! they are fudgy and chocolatey and perfect! thanks!!"
"Kiddos love these! I found the recipe on the box of cake mix and make them twice this week. Came in to submit the recipe and it was already here! I took pictures and will add them shortly. I do not add the pecans, use real butter and only 1/2 cup of chips (real milk chocolate ones though, not semi-sweet!)"
"I found this recipe in the back of the box of a duncan hines chocolate fudge cake mix and it is absolutely delicious. I've made cake mix cookies before but this recipe is by far the best. I made half a batch with nuts and half with only chocolate chips. I also froze some left over dough roled in plastic wrap and simply sliced and baked when company came. I think I will keep frozen cookie dough on a regular basis for such occasions."
"This recipe has always been a favorite for my friends and family. It's easy enough that my kids can make them whenever they want a yummy dessert. And my good friend's teenage son won't let me in the door unless I have a plate of these cookies for him! :^) Thanks for posting!"
"This recipe was so EASY and so GOOD! My whole family loved it!!"
"So easy and so yummy! I used Betty Crocker Super Moist triple chocolate Fudge cake mix. Love this recipe. Thanks!"
"i used a betty crocker mix (cho. fudge one) and used the chewey time. these were good! the kind of chocolate that sticks to your mouth after several glasses of milk. the kind of chocolate thats especially good around that certain time each month. in my opinion, definitely a womans kind of cookie (cause what woman would share them)"
