Cheater's Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

"I was inspired by Chef#407338's Recipe#247019 and decided to come up with my own recipe using cake mix.If you feel like this recipe has too much chocolate, ( As if there could be too much chocolate ;) ) you can use a white cake mix instead.To keep cookie dough from getting too soft, place in refrigerator between uses.The cooking time is for each sheet of cookies.Submitted to "ZAAR" on November 25th,2008.And again I want to thank Chef#407338 for inspiring me.:)"

  1. These are very easy and taste great. My daughters thought they were awesome! I didn't have mini chips, so I added a full cup of regular size chocolate chips and didn't use the optional nuts. I didn't flatten the cookies half way through baking because I wanted a chunkier look. I did use parchment paper, but they stuck pretty bad. I had better luck with foil, so I continued with that. Yield and 10 minutes time were right on for me. Gotta love cake mix cookie recipes! Thanks for posting!


Even though I haven't been here for a long time, MY recipes aren't up for adoption. :) And don't change any of them either. ;)
