Those Yummy Cookies I Talked About
Okay, so here are those yummy chocolate cookies I told you about. And the best thing is they are SO easy!
Here's what you need:
1 cake mix (I used Duncan Hines Devils Food)
1 stick butter softened
1/2 cup chopped nuts (I used pecans)
1/2 cup chocolate chips (I used dark chocolate)
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Mix ingredients together in bowl. It's a very dry mixture, so I added just a little bit of oil to help mix it together. Apple sauce would have been a good alternative. I used a small cookie scoop -- probably about a tablespoon -- and placed on ungreased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake about 10 minutes. They will have a glossy look to them, but they will settle down and harden. These are a soft, moist cookie!
This will be a fun recipe to play around with...different flavors of cake mix and different additions like M&Ms, different flavored chips, etc.
If you make these let me know how you like them!
