Devil's Food Cake Cookies

This recipe is so simple it seems almost too evil to post.  ALMOST :)  Beware...these cookies are addictive.  Did I mention how easy these were to put together too?  Four ingredients, about 2 minutes to mix it all together...the hardest part about this recipe is trying not to eat every last cookie as it comes out of the oven!!  Oh how easy it would be to stock up on boxes of devil's food cake mix, too!!!!  But don't.. hold yourself back, I don't want any hate emails saying I ruined your girlish figures!  These cookies are so good, they were still fresh and soft and yummy 5 days later!

Let's talk about these cookies for a minute, shall we?  Let's say you only had a chocolate cake mix at home instead of devils food cake, go ahead and use it.  Let's say you had white chocolate chips on hand but no semi-sweet chocolate chips, go ahead and use them (personally I think peanut butter chips would be wonderful in these cookies!!).  Let's say you like walnuts in your cookies, go ahead and add them!  I think you see that the possibilities for these cookies are endless!  Just know.. they are soft, they are chewy, they are chocolaty.......enough talking, let's eat!!!

Devil's Food Cake Cookies
Adapted from Duncan Hines 
1 package (18.25 oz box) devil's food cake mix
2 large eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Combine cake mix, eggs, and oil in a large bowl.  Stir until thoroughly blended.  Stir in the chocolate chips.  Shape dough into 1 1/4 inch balls.  Place 2 inches apart on cookie sheets.

Bake for 8-10 minutes.  Cookies will look moist, do not over bake.  Remove from oven and cool for 2 minutes on cookie sheets.  Remove to cooling rack and allow cookies to cool completely.  Store in airtight container (if you have any left over!!!)  Enjoy!

A couple years ago I made many variations of the cake mix cookie, because cake mix is so cheap! For a fun treat for the little girls in your life, try making these cookies with strawberry cake mix. They're gorgeous and yummy. :)
