cake batter cookies

This recipe will change your life. 

Need an impressive dessert to take to a party with only minutes to spare? Bake these up while you're getting ready. Unexpected guests? Here is the easiest ticket to hostess with the mostess land.

Since discovering this recipe, I have made it for my office, our neighbors who rescued Sampson, my Bible study, barbecues. Andrea Cherie's husband Jason came over while I was baking a huge batch, and let's just say it's a good thing it's hard to spoil his supper or else I would have been in trouble :)

They are far from healthy, but I'll go out on a limb and say they are the perfect hybrid of cake, cookie, and brownie. Here it is!


1 box of your favorite cake mix (I use dark chocolate fudge)
2 eggs
1/4 cup vegetable oil (I use Smart Balance oil)
1 cup (or more) of your favorite mix-ins (nuts, M&Ms, choc chips, etc)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix first three ingredients until combined. Fold in mix-ins. Spoon onto greased cookie sheet and bake for eight minutes. Voila! You can get about 20 cookies out of this, depending on how big you make them.

Flavor ideas: Our favorite is dark chocolate cake mix with dark chocolate chips (very rich, just like we like it!), chocolate cake with white chocolate chips, red velvet with white chocolate chips, M&Ms, pecans, chopped heath bar, chopped Andes mints. The possibilities are endless!
