Double Chocolate Dreams

I was baking up a couple batches of the cookies earlier this week for a cookie exchange, but after baking a double batch of the gingersnaps, I was out of flour AND sugar! What to do? I used a cake mix!

This recipe comes from "Cake Mix Magic." It's super easy and perfect for someone who is intimidated by all the measuring involved in baking.

Double Chocolate Dreams

1 pkg. MSPI-friendly devil's food cake mix
2 eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 cups MSPI-friendly semi-sweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup chopped nuts

In a large mixer bowl, combine cake mix, eggs and oil. With a wooden spoon or on low speed of mixer, mix for 1 minute or until well blended. Dough will be stiff. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts.

Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto greased baking sheets (or use Silpat or parchment paper). Bake at 375 degrees for 8 to 12 minutes or just until set. Cool 1 minute on baking sheets on a wire rack, then transfer cookies to rack and cool completely.

Makes about 4 dozen cookies.

*** Use yellow cake mix for a traditional chocolate chip cookie.
