“This is a variation on a recipe posted by startnover. Using Duncan Hines Deluxe Moist Dark Chocolate Fudge cake mix gives you incredibly moist, chewy cookies. I've made them twice now and I'm amazed at how many medium-sized cookies I can get out of a box of cake mix. (36+)”
36 medium-sized cookies
