Cake Mix Chocolate Chip Cookies

If you need an easy, delicious chocolate chip cookie fix, here's a recipe for you.  My mother found the recipe in our local newspaper years ago, and my entire family has been making it ever since.  Our kids have loved this recipe and now some of them are making this recipe for their families.

I have adapted this recipe a bit for today's blog post.  I added 3/4 cup of flour to the original recipe and some cute little star sprinkles.  The flour makes the cookie a little more substantial; so it looks prettier, and although I was a little concerned about how the cookies would taste, they actually taste better.

These show up often at family potlucks and holiday dinners.  If we have more than one dessert, these cookies are the first to go.

Cookies are my favorite!

Why don't you try these great little cookies this weekend?

Cake Mix Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 yellow white cake mix (I used Duncan Hines)
3/4 cup of flour
1/2 cup Canola Oil
2 tablespoons of water
2 eggs
1 teaspoon Vanilla
1 heaping cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips

Sift yellow cake mix and flour into a large mixing bowl.  Stir in oil, water,  eggs, and vanilla until all ingredients are incorporated.  Stir in chocolate chips and sprinkles.  Cover mixing bowl and place dough in the refrigerator for a few hours.  Using a cookie scoop, scoop dough onto a cooking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.

Serve to family and friends!

(Cookie dough will keep for a few days in the refrigerator.  I only bake a few at a time because I like my cookies freshly baked.)
