SO EASY! I used Pilsbury Classic Yellow cake mix (w/ pudding in the mix) and they were delicious! The cookies were even better the next day. Be careful not to over cook them. I took mine out the second I saw a very light golden color around the sides. I let them continue cooking on the baking sheet until they were cool enough to sample- then off the the cooling rack. Betty Crocker Extra Moist cake mix has worked well for me too.:) Read More

This is very easy, I'll give it that. Not my favorite, though. Mine didn't come out chewy in the middle, more cake-like. They are yellow and the house smelled of yellow cake mix. The kids liked it. I don't think I'll make this one again, though. There are other better ones on this site. Read More

It might not be the BEST cookie you've ever had but it probably will be the easiest you've ever made. It also works well with a chocolate cake mix which my family prefers. ---- I no longer own an electric beater and found that this recipe can be done with a big spoon. Just cut the butter in with a knife and fork first. Read More

I was skeptical about making these - I just didn't think cake mix would make a good cookie but I was wrong! We've already made 2 batches and they both turned out wonderfully. Easier than my other chocolate chip recipes too. 1 1/2 cups of chips was plenty for us though. A definite keeper for me! Read More

This is an easy recipe for the whole family. I can have my 3yr old add ingredients because there is not much measuring or I can have my 13yr old just make the whole thing. These are so good they usually don t last through the night. I too love chocolate and also found it best to only use 1.5 cups of chips. Also on one occasion I didn t have any yellow mix so we used white and it was still SO good! I am actually wondering what it would be like to use carrot cake with walnuts and perhaps a dollop of cream cheese frosting? Read More

Wow! Great cookies. Don't use Duncan Hynes though. I had best luck with Pillsbury. Read More

We LOVE these cookies!! My husband son and I ate the first batch before the second batch was done cooking! They were so easy and fool proof. My son and I have a new song and dance called "yummy & delicious " inspired by these cookies!! I noticed some of the reviews said cut back on chocolate chips I did a bit but...Can you have too many chocolate chips...ever???? Read More
