Chocolate Snowdrops

This recipe makes a soft, chewy cookie that your family will gobble up in a hurry! There are only four ingredients and I have most of them in my pantry or refrigerator at all times -- no hunting for exotic ingredients! If chocolate is not your favorite, the recipe can be changed by using a lemon cake mix with the pudding in the mix. They are great also!

You can vary this recipe. This one is for chocolate cake mix with chocolate chips. You can use peanut butter chips or raspberry chips and nuts instead. You can also add 1/4 cup of brown sugar. Or you can use another flavor cake mix and omit the chocolate chips. The cake mix, butter and egg mixture is the same for all.

Cake Mix Cookies I

Rating: 4.5 stars
A friend gave me this recipe several months ago. I have tried several variations including using a carrot cake mix with white chocolate chips and chocolate cake mix with butterscotch chips - the variety is endless! Note: I haven't had a great deal of success in storing these cookies more than one or two days. They seem to toughen up rather quickly.
