Devil's Food Cake Mix Cookies

This is Prom weekend in our community and one of our daughters is attending all the festivities. 

She informed/asked me 2 nights ago that 12 other kids and their parents would be coming over to our house for pictures.....

Of course we were fine with it. We have a large covered porch, the length of our home with a wide open staircase descending, so of course it would accommodate all of them. 

I wanted to make sure that everyone had a little nibble and also a bottle of water. Thinking they were all going out to eat afterwards, I decided just to make a really good cookie. 

Simple is best when it comes to baking for me. Cooking I can do with one hand tied and 1 eye closed, baking....not so much. 

I had tried to make these in the past and they were kinda bleh. This time I opted for Chocolate with chocolate and BAM!!! there it is! 

A simple cookie that uses.......

wait for it......

Devil's Food CAKE MIX.

I know, you're like, say whaaaaat? But these are awesome. Crackly and bumpy on the outside and dreamy, chewy chocolatey-ness on the inside. 

And now for a close up of the ooey goodness in the center...


1 box of Devil's Food Cake Mix 
1/2 cup butter-softened (1 stick)
2 eggs
1 tsp Vanilla
3/4 cup Semi Sweet Chocolate morsels, or peanut butter or Heath chips

  1. Place all of the ingredients in a bowl and mix thoroughly using a stand or hand held mixer. 
  2. Preheat oven to 350F and place mounded tbsp of cookie dough on a silicon, parchment or sprayed baking sheet or pan, 1-2" apart. 
  3. Bake for 9-10 minutes. 
  4. Allow to cool in the pan for 10 minutes before removing to a cooling rack to cool completely.
  5. Store in a covered container-if they last that long.
