Chunky Chocolate Cookies


Don't tell.

These cookies are make with CAKE MIX!

They are so good.

Just go ahead and try not to eat the whole batch before you share them with your family.

(You can use any chocolate cake mix to make this.  I happened to use a box of Duncan Hines Dark Chocolate Fudge cake mix.)

Chunky Chocolate Cake Mix Cookies
Makes about 3-4 dozen cookies

1 package Dark Chocolate cake mix
2 large eggs
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
1/4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Place cake mix, eggs, melted butter, brown sugar and vanilla extract in large bowl.  Stir with spoon until thoroughly blended.  Stir in chocolate chips and pecans.  Drop by level measuring tablespoonfuls onto greased baking sheets (or use parchment paper). 

Bake for 12 minutes for chewy cookies or 14 minutes for crisp cookies.

Cool on baking sheet for 2 minutes and then move to cooling rack.  Store in airtight container.

I adapted these cookies for this month's Secret Recipe Club. I absolutely love your blog! I had so much fun looking around and you made it so difficult to pick a recipe. I've bookmarked so many to make in the future. Loved these cookies! Hope you like what I did with them. Now, I need to go back and make them your way because they sound amazing!
