Chocolate Cake Mix Chocolate Cookies

Written by Tad. Posted in Cookies

A real cookie-baking snob wouldn’t even look at a recipe like this, let alone make them and like them. This is as easy as cookie baking gets and they are really fun. I don’t like cake mixes. I don’t like white chips. Yet I really like these. Give them a try!

Recipe By: San Jose Mercury News

Serving Size: 24


1 box chocolate cake mix with pudding

2 large eggs

½ cup canola oil

1 tablespoon vanilla

1 cup nuts, chopped (optional)

1 cup coconut

1 1/2 cup white chocolate chips


1. Heat oven to 350 degrees.

2. Mix all ingredients together.

3. Bake for 12-13 minutes.


Watch out because the chips tend to separate out and go to the bottom. I actually have to dump the dough out of the KitchenAid then mix it up and scoop it from the counter to keep the chips evenly distributed in the dough.

They are tender and people frequently comment on them being like brownies.

    These are seriously some of my favorites. I especially love experimenting with different cake mixes and goodies.

    Makes me look like a gourmet chef. 🙂

    Lol! This is the recipe, minus the coconut, is exactly the one mom sent us off to college with. It gets rave reviews everytime and is embarrassingly simple. My sis’s favorite combo is lemon cake mix with crushed lemonheads.
