Directions For Chocolate Cake Mix Cookies With Chocolate Chips

Using an electric mixer, beat together the cake mix, oil and eggs until combined using medium speed. Now, fold in the chocolate chips manually. Place dough into the fridge overnight. If you don’t have time to keep the dough overnight, refrigerate for as much time as you can – even 30 minutes will do.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Using a small cookie scoop, scoop out some dough, roll into cookie dough balls and place onto the cookie sheet. About 12 balls of dough on the cookie sheet.

Bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes or until done. Allow to cool on a cooling rack for 5 minutes before moving and baking the rest of the dough.

Do I Need To Add Melted Butter To This Recipe?

This particular recipe does not require any melted butter, but if you’d like to add some to the mix, I wouldn’t overdo it. Consider starting with 2 tablespoons and see how it works out for you.

Should I use parchment paper when baking cookies?

It’s always a great idea to use parchemnent paper while baking. Your favorite recipes are easy to make, but not so easy to clean up. The great thing about parchment paper is they leave your pans much cleaner than if you didn’t use them.
