Apparently a lot of folks.
I just wasn't one of them.
I hate to say how long we've had a boxed cake mix in the pantry, but there it was. And still with a month to go on its expiration date. Score!
Five ingredients. Not stand-mixer. And no butter or salt - which just seems wrong. I love in the M&M, Triple Chocolate and Chocolate Chip cookies when you get a taste of salt with that sweet. It's kind of like if you were dating me. ......in your dreams!!!
Cake Mix - (the recipe said yellow, but I had white. It worked) - 1 box.
Baking Powder - 1 t
Vegetable Oil - 1/2 C
Eggs - 2
Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips - 1 C
Boom! That's it.
Mix Baking Powder in with the cake mix. Then add the vegetable oil and eggs. Beat till smooth.
Stir in the semi-sweet chips.
It was the easiest batter I've ever worked with. With a 1T scoop, they went on an ungreased baking sheet. They were supposed to make 24, I got 25 - and wasted zero of the batter.
Bake 10-12 minutes at 350F. Let them cool on the tray before moving them. They are soft even then, but they harden up, but just a bit.
Because of the white cake, they're a little pale. But it's all good. They taste good. And they have that boxed vanilla smell that cake mixes have.
I was worried they wouldn't be good (I didn't taste-test before 710 came home). His response: "it's cake mix and chocolate chips - how bad can it be? "
I don't know it would be my go-to cookie, but it's super simple and it is a good way of clearing out stiff in the pantry.
