Looking for a super yummy, easy, fuss-free recipe? Cake mix cookies are it!
I’d never heard of making cookies with cake mix until about a year ago, but it is ridiculously, ridiculously easy. So there’s really no reason NOT to make some today, right?
After making a couple of batches, I experimented with a little “extra” ingredient and – voila! – this Butterscotch Chocolate Chip Cake Mix Cookie recipe was born! Here’s how to make some of your own!
Butterscotch Chocolate Chip Cake Mix Cookie Recipe
So, if you’re going to make cake mix cookies, then you’re definitely going to need…cake mix. I think most of us probably have a box lying in the back of the pantry somewhere.
I used Betty Crocker Super Moist Yellow Cake Mix, but you could probably use whatever flavor you want.
You just empty out the cake mix, then add in some baking powder.
Pour in vegetable oil and a couple of eggs.
Then butterscotch chips (which were also lying in the back of my pantry)…
and chocolate chips (which, as you can see, had also been lying in my pantry for some time). They still tasted good, though, so if your chocolate chips look dry, they’re okay to use. 🙂
Use a tablespoon to drop mounds onto ungreased baking sheets.
And in about 10 minutes, you have these.
Can’t you just smell them through the computer screen?
A quick note: These cookies do NOT brown on top. They turn golden (because of the yellow cake mix), but they don’t get that “cookie brown” color. So after 10 minutes, they really are done. Don’t overcook them!
All that’s missing now is a huge glass of milk.
