“I frequently make these cookies for work pitch-ins & family get-togethers. They are always a big hit! I was given the basic recipe several years ago by a lady who showed up at my garage sale—and she wrote it down during our conversation about baking. I have perfected different varieties over the years. Please see my other recipes for how to make the following versions of this cookie: lemon, chocolate chip, & sugar cookies. This is a really versatile recipe base—experiment!! This variety makes the perfect "bread" for home-made icecream sandwiches. These cookies are also EXCELLENT when you use dark raspberry chips, peanut butter chips, or nuts.”
24-36 cookies

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (18 ounce) box chocolate cake mix (personal favorite is fudge or devil's food flavor)
  • 2 eggs
  • 12 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 -2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (or other desired add in, see my note on the recipe above)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Stir ingredients in medium mixing bowl until blended (best to do right before you are ready to bake them- they flatten out more if you let the batter set).
  3. Spoon onto 2 un-greased cookie sheets (allow some space in between, they spread…a melon baller works great for this step).
  4. Bake for 8-10 minutes (depends on which cake mix you use & the oven -- I start looking at them through the glass around 6.5 minutes -- they will get a dull/cracked appearance on top when done).
  5. Allow the cookies to cool on the pan, or wait 1-2 minutes before moving to cooling racks.
