  • 1 15oz box chocolate cake mix*
  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips, plus more for dotting the tops with


  • Preheat the oven to 350F degrees and line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper or baking mats.
  • In a large bowl using beat together the butter, eggs and chocolate cake mix.
  • Mix in the chocolate chips.
  • Using a cookie scoop* spoon the dough into balls about 1-1.5 tablespoons in size and place 2 inches apart on the cookie sheets.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until the tops look set. Optionally, place a few chocolate chips on top of each cookie. 


*If your cake mix box is 18 oz, use 1/2 cup melted butter instead.
**If you don't have a cookie scoop, lightly spray your palms and a tablespoon with cookie spray then form the dough into balls about 1 tablespoon in size. The dough will be sticky, which is why I recommend lightly greasing your hands and the spoon.
