I made these last night just because I wanted something butterscotch and I love chocolate. The cookies were great -- very very rich and soft. My brother loved them. And I would've pigged out on them with a glass of milk if I weren't dieting. So I'm giving 5 stars for the finished product. I have to say that the cookie dough was kind of gross -- way way too oily. I was wringing the oil out as I rolled them. I have a couple of cake mix cookbooks and many of the recipes require 1/3 c. oil 2 eggs the cake mix and whatever. Next time I may cut back on the oil a little bit and see if the cookies still turn out as good. Also I baked the cookies on parchment paper which may have helped in soaking up some of the excess oil during baking. Read More

I agree these cookies are easy to make. However they are very rich. The cake mix and butterscotch chips don't mix well. Read More

This is a great recipe I've been using it since I was little. I use it so many different ways. Yellow Cake mix with Chocolate Chips is the most common. Any cake mix with any bag of chips or candies works great. People rave about them whenever I make them. My boyfriends favorite is the chocolate with butterscotch but my roomates is Lemon cake with white chocolate chips. The possibilities are endless. I'm glad to see other people using it as well.

This was a very easy recipe. I tried the lemon with white chocolate chips and it was very good. Instead of the 1/2 of oil I melted a half of a stick of butter in 1/2 cup measuring cup and filled the rest with applesauce. The cookies were still delicious with a little less fat. Read More

These were pretty good a little sweet for my taste but still yummy! I think 2 cups of buttersctoch was a bit much though; I ended up using a whole bag of the chip. Next time I think I'll just use 1 cup.:) They turned out a bit hard but that's my own fault. I couldn't really tell if they had cooked enough because they were chocolate so I'll cut the cooking time a bit when I make these again. These seem like they would also be good with peanut butter chips. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

I made the cookies with lemon cake mix and white choc chips. They need to be pretty small balls of dough because they bake up pretty large. Also I didn't need near as many chips. But overall pretty good! I can't wait to try choc cake w/ pb chips! Read More

This recipe is amazing for a 4-ingredient cookie! I modified it by adding 1 1/2 tsp. peppermint extract and substituting chocolate chips for the butterscotch chips. A real keeper! Next time I make it however I will cut the chips down to 1 1/2 cups as the dough was a bit "unwieldy". Read More
