Recipe #3: Chocolate cake cookies

The thing that I love about this recipe is how simple it is. I got this recipe off of a cake mix and was making it all the time. I haven't made it in a couple of months as we are trying to eat a bit healthier.

Prep Time: 5 minutes (50 minutes with baking time)
Makes: 3-4 dozen


  • 1 chocolate cake mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted
  • 1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional - I've never added them before)

- Preheat oven to 350 F.
- Mix all ingredients together (except chocolate chips and nuts).
- Stir in chocolate chips and nuts.
- Drop about a tablespoon of dough onto baking sheets (greased if you want).

- Bake for about 12 minutes.
- Let cool and remove from pan.

- Enjoy!!

I was thinking as I put this together that you could probably try any cake mix you want and it would still be pretty good...not sure though. Give it a try if you're daring :)
