chocolate cake mix cookies

i know, i know, terrible picture, but truth be told,  i was just not in the baking mood this week, so it depicts my mood....crappy.
i did manage to whip up my required baked good for the 12 weeks of christmas cookies and you know what? they are not only easy, but dang tasty. the recipe calls for one cup of chocolate chips, but i subbed white chocolate chips because caroline loves the unchocolate flavor. they taste like a little chewy, moist brownie. i would definitely make them again. i found the recipe here.

okay, off to see if i can get happier. enjoy.

Hope your next week goes better. Still, your cookies look great. I remember the first time I ate cake mix cookies, I thought they were the best things I ever put in my mouth, so I'm sure yours taste delicious as well.

April actually sent me some cake mix cookies last year that she had made and my hubby ate them all. I really need to try these!
I hope your mood is a little better looking at all the other amazing treats. Did you see the hedge hogs? They sure made me smile! :)

Oh silly me. I wondered why that last comment didnt go through. I didnt see you had to moderate the comments. Well, maybe my stupidity will make you smile too. Sorry about that. (:-/)

Oh, I hope your day is looking sunnier by now...these cookies look like something my guys would like, chocolate nuts that they are over here. They were still hacking away today, but I packed them and sent them on their way anyway. They were happy to oblige...now, I can have my bed back, get a good night's sleep, and air out all the germies tomorrow...and then I bake! :-) I'm still holding strong, not a sign of getting any of it at all...fingers crossed.

I'm sure by now your day has improved dramatically - if not, GET ON WITH IT! :)

Never tried cake mix cookies but I'm all for making things that are fast and delicious!

These look perfect!! I made some like this before..but it used a cake mix, cool whip and an egg. Strange combo, but it worked. :)

I always hear great things about the cake mix cookies but I've never made them. I think it's time to change that. Yours look fantastic!
