Let me show you something that will make you want to hug me:
Let me tell you something that will make you want to rise up and call everything and everyone blessed:
There are 4 ingredients in these cookies…and one of them is boxed cake mix.
AND THEY ARE AMAZING!!!
I’m not even kidding. These rank among the best cookies I’ve ever had. They are perfectly textured – soft yet chewy – rich, and decadent. And they’re definitely the easiest I’ve ever made. I think I’m bringing a version of these to any and every social event I attend from now until eternity. Amen.
Cake Box Cookies
- 1 box cake mix (I used Pillsbury Dark Chocolate with Pudding)
- 2 eggs
- 1/3 cup oil
- Mix-ins (I used the mini Reese’s because on Fridays I don’t have the patience to unwrap 30 bite size Reese’s)
Preheat the oven to 350. Empty the cake mix into a large bowl. In a separate bowl, lightly whisk together the eggs and the oil (I skipped this step…don’t do that). Stir the wet mixture into the cake mix until just combined (it will be thicker than thick), then add in the Reese’s or add-in of your choice.
I made 12 big cookies and baked them for about 10 minutes, rotating the pan half-way through because my oven hails from earlier times (think covered wagons) and tends to heat unevenly (think Pisa).
My brain is exploding with other ideas. Dark Chocolate Peppermint Patty Cookies! Vanilla Candy Bar Cookies! Marble Chocolate Chunk with Rainbow Sprinkle Birthday Cookies!
I think I might have to steal the corner market on cake box cookies because oh my word…I’m in love.
Happy baking! Let me know what you discover!
