cake mix chocolate chip cookies


i was lucky enough to win a betty crocker gift pack the other week from real mom kitchen, a fantastic blog with fantastic recipes and ideas. the gift pack included cake mix, icing, a decorator's kit, pot holder, spoon, cake server and an icing spatula. it is really awesome, but i was not in the mood to make a cake, so i searched the betty crocker web site and found this recipe for cake mix chocolate chip cookies. they are a mix and drop style, in other words, quick and easy!


i whipped them up for the family and well, they are not bad. definitely not your typical chocolate chip cookie, more cake-y with a strong vanilla flavor. everyone seems to be enjoying them based on the consumption rate. i think this recipe would be a great kid's project or a throw together cookie, but it won't ever replace the tried and true made from scratch chocolate chip cookie. enjoy.

p.s. i received two boxes of cake mix, so another cake mix recipe that is not cake, is on the way!

They do look tasty. Try the chocolate cake mix the same way. Makes good choco cookies.
