Desperately seeking cake mix cookies recipe. I know there's a way to make chocolate cookies from a chocolate cake mix. But I can't seem to find the recipe.
Can you help?

Drop by level measuring tablespoonfuls onto greased baking sheets.
Bake at 350° F. for 12 minutes for chewy cookies (cookies will still be puffed) or 14 minutes for crisp cookies.
Cool for 2 minutes on baking sheets.
Remove to cooling racks.

I've tried this recipe. It makes great cookies.
Plus it saves you a little time and effort. No need to measure out the flour, chocolate, etc. Less measuring means less chance of spilling and best of all, less time spent cleaning up!
You can omit the nuts and chips and still have a tasty cookie.
Or omit the nuts and add more chips. Try adding a few dark chocolate chips and some milk chocolate or white chocolate chips.
Peanut butter chips, caramel bits or peppermint chips or pieces are a good non-chocolate addition.

It's a little more work, but they're very good! And you can claim all the credit.
Thanks Sue for the question. Hope you enjoy your cookies.
And thank you Duncan Hines company for the recipe.
