I love the ease of this recipe and of course, the fact that they are CHOCOLATE cookies with CHOCOLATE chips :) Mmmmmmmm... chocolate!!
One of my other favorite cookie recipes (Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies) rolls the dough in sugar before baking them and I always say that is what makes those cookies so amazingly good. I thought I would see if the same would go for these cookies..... Not so much. I mean they were good... how could something rolled in sugar not be, right... they just weren't any better then the ones not rolled in sugar, so I'm leaving that step out all together and giving you the original recipe. This recipe is simple and produces delicious cookies!
Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies
Recipe courtesy Anna Lee Lantz
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 box devils food cake mix
2 cups quick cooking oats
1 cup chocolate chips (or a little more if you desire)
Heat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Beat egg, water, butter, shortening, sugar and half the cake mix until smooth. Stir in remaining cake mix and the oats. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Drop dough by tablespoons full, 2-inches apart onto an ungreased baking sheet. Bake 10-12 minutes, rotating baking sheet half way through the cooking process. Cool slightly, remove from baking sheet and allow to cool completely on a wire rack. Store in airtight container for up to 1 week.
One note about these cookies... the less time they are in the oven, the chewier they will be. I actually usually only bake mine for a maximum of 10 minutes. Enjoy!
