I know, a boxed mix? How terrible! Let me tell you, I am definitely against pre-made mixes. But after my little brother made these at school, he begged to make them again, and I just couldn't say no.
So suck it up, or click back and look at another guide.
Gather your ingredients.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper, silpat, or even grease with cooking spray or butter.
Combine the cake mix and baking powder in a large bowl.
Add the eggs, oil, and vanilla to a smaller bowl and whisk together.
Now, add the liquid mixture to the dry ingredients, stirring thoroughly until there are no more dry pockets.
You can use an electric or stand mixer if you prefer. This is a very thick dough.
Gently stir in the chocolate chips, you might need to use your hands. I used semisweet, but go with your favorite. White chocolate would be very good in these cookies.
Roll the dough into balls, about two tablespoons each. Make the balls taller than they are round, so that the end product is nice and thick.
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, but make sure not to let the cookies brown. Let the cookies rest on the baking sheet for three minutes after they come out of the oven.
After three minutes, the cookies should have deflated a bit. If not, gently press down on their tops.
Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
This recipe yields about two dozen cookies. 🍓🍫
I think my favorite thing about these cookies is the texture. I love the crackled top and the soft inside. Store in an airtight container to retain their softness.
Perhaps you could make these for that special someone on Valentines Day?
My little brother was extremely happy to be eating one of the cookies he helped to make. 😄
