So I had a baking itch over the weekend, but didnt feel like buying ALL the ingredients for cookies...too expensive...too much work...I wanted my cookies to be delicious and quick. So here is what I did.
What you will need
1 box of yellow cake mix (i used sugar free, but you dont have to)
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
2 cups Chocolate chips (the fullblown sweet ones, not semi sweet.)
1/2 cup of softened Butter
Preheat oven to 350
Put the cake mix, butter, eggs, vanilla and butter in a big bowl, stir until creamy (you can use a mixer or just a big spoon, either way works)
Then stir in chocolate chips once its creamy
Drop by rounded spoonfuls on a baking sheet
cook 10-15 minutes until edges are golden brown.
VOILA easy, fast cookies!
