These are the exact opposite of my recently posted flatter than pancakes milk chocolate chip cookies. These chocolate cake mix cookies do not spread at all. If you want them flattened, you can do just that… put some flour on your fingers before doing so. 🙂
These are super easy. Just a cake mix, melted butter, and eggs. I tossed in 1 cup of chocolate chips. I also frosted them. But you could sprinkle powdered sugar on top of warm cookies instead, if you prefer.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees before baking so it cycles to the right temp. Don’t overcook these either. You do not want a dry cookie. They will continue to bake on the cookie sheet after removed from the oven.
- 15.5 oz chocolate cake mix (i used devil’s food)
- 5 tbs butter, melted
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup chocolate chips
Directions – preheat oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes before baking. In a bowl, combine cake mix, melted butter and eggs. Stir in chips. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper, scoop out 3 tbs of dough and form mounds. Stagger cookies on prepared sheet – a row of 2, a row of 1, a row of 2, a row of 1, a row of 2. You can fit 6 or 8 on a sheet, depending on the size of a sheet. Bake 10 to 14 minutes. You don’t want the bottoms too brown. Cookies will still continue to bake on sheet after removed from oven. Cool completely.
