Ever need to make a quick batch of chocolate chip cookies?  This is your recipe!!  Whether you’re looking for Strawberry Chocolate Chip, German Chocolate Pecan, or Chocolate Marble Oatmeal, this recipe has got you covered!!

Directions

Ingredients

  • 1 box cake mix (any flavor)
  • Oil
  • Water
  • Eggs
  • 1/2 cup – 1 cup Favorite Add-ins (chocolate chips, chopped nuts, frosting, oatmeal, pieces of fruit)

Directions

Preheat oven to 350.

For crispier cookies, combine cake mix, 2 Tablespoons oil, 2 Tablespoons water, and add-in.

For softer cookies, combine cake mix, 1/4 – 1/3 cup oil, 1/4 – 1/3 cup water, 1 large egg, and add-in.

Drop by teaspoon, about 1 inch apart, onto lightly greased cookie sheet.  Bake 10 – 15 minutes.  Edges may be lightly browned while tops are still pale, this is fine.

Makes 3 – 4 dozen cookies.

TIPS:

***If your add in is frosting, you can use the entire can, but the dough will be stiff.  Just make sure it is well-blended.***

***Some people use 2/3 cup oil instead of 1/3 cup oil and 1/3 cup water.  Also, you can substitute 8 ounces of cream cheese or 1 stick of butter instead of  oil and water.  You may need to experiment to find the right combination that creates the cookies that you love***
