So easy to make, so soft! They go fast at my house.

OMG!!! Soooo frigg'in good!!! I was so skeptical...because of the cake mix... but this will be a regular in my house... Where have you been all my life??? -) For those that said their cookies stuck... use a non stick pan...-)

OMG - these were so easy and so tasty....and think of all the possibilities! Thanks for a great recipe!

Very good, however,cookies stuck to pans like crazy. Should have sprayed pans but it said ungreased.

I make these weekly trying different varieties of mixes and add ins. I have made chocolate with chocolate chips, pecans and shredded coconut kind of like a german chocolate. Today I used a yellow cake mix and a chocolate cake mix. Divided the batters. In one of the yellow I added chocolate chips and m&m's, in the other half of the yellow I mixed in peanut butter, peanut butter chips and reese's pieces. For the chocolate I put white chocolate chips in one half of the batter and in the other half of the batter I used reese's pieces and peanut butter chips. I hate to say it but I had one of each and they were delish!

I would have to have more than 1 of each.....

It's a rainy, drippy early fall day so we stayed indoors and made these cookies. OMG! They are absolutely delicious and soooo easy. Our 12 year old neighbor, who stopped by for a visit, has already asked us to make sure and give the recipe to his mom. One note... when melting the caramels we added about 1/4 cup evaporated milk to 1 bag ( 14 oz) of Kraft caramels so that the drizzzle would stay softer and less chewy when it cooled on the cookie. (The leftover went into the fridge to top some bread pudding or apple crisp later in the season.)

how about peanutbutter chips

I made these using a gluten free chocolate cake mix and they were delicious!

I love these cookies there great for the cookie jar, and a quick and easy batch to make for some friends

I can't wait to try these. Thanks to all for other great ideas!

I use cake mixes every once in a while for cookies and they are pretty darned good. I have a cookbook using nothing but cake mixes, and cookies have a notable place in it.


I'm going to try these w/ Orange or Red Velvet..w/ mik chocolate or white chocolate chips.. that's what i have on hand.. can't wait to try them.

I made "these" cookies sometimes twice a week!1 SOOOO easy and SOOOO good!! Have not used the chocolate mix but use yellow and add chocolate chips........ I bake mine a little longer - just according to how your oven bakes.....

Should be "make", not "made"!!

Are these a crispy cooking or a chewy cookie? I prefer crispy cookies.

Since there is no liquid other than the eggs and oil, these will be chewy. I think that shows up on the video when one is pulled apart.

I, too, prefer crispy cookies and many are those soft doughy kind. I wish the recipes would specify.

great idea!!!!!:)

I wonder if it would be good with vanilla cake mix?

Well then it wouldn't be a chocolate cookie, would it???

Someone posted above that they'd used yellow cake mix and it worked.

try white cake & oreos

Nice and easy..just the recipe I love to make. Will bake them for sure.

we love watching you guys. you make cooking fun again even on a small budget. i'm making these today.
