These cookies are so good I am almost sad to have discovered them. Now I have to try to stop myself from running out and buying a cake mix to bake them!
Apparently I am the last person on earth to have heard of these. I don’t know how I could have missed such a perfect combination of cookie and brownie. And I’m sure with a different flavor of mix you’d get something completely different (in a good way). Red velvet, perhaps?
Cake mix cookies
makes about 20 cookies
1 box chocolate cake mix
2/3 cup vegetable oil
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl. Scoop out heaping tablespoons of the dough (a cookie scoop would be helpful here), leaving at least an inch of space between cookies.
Bake for 8 minutes or until the cookies have completely flattened.
Sprinkle on a little powdered sugar before serving.
And if you want to be truly evil, you can spread some vanilla bean ice cream between two cookies and have an ice cream sandwich. I highly recommend this.
