Double Chocolate Chip Cake Mix Cookies

Double Chocolate Chip Cake Mix Cookies

When you are almost 8 months pregnant and you want something sweet, sometimes you have to take it upon yourself to make it happen.

As you all know, I have had moments like these throughout my pregnancy, like when I made a chocolate butter cream cake just because I wanted some really good cake.

Well, this time I wanted some really good cookies!

I didn’t have the two full sticks of butter that most chocolate chip cookie recipes call for, and I didn’t have enough cocoa powder for double chocolate chip cookies, but I did have a box of devil’s food cake mix, and pondered: How can I use this???

I took to the Internet and researched a few methods to my madness and came across a fantastic recipe from Pinch of Yum! I used her recipe as a guide in terms of the method, but I used different ratios and a few different ingredients.

I can tell you: these were easy, delicious and satisfied a pregnant lady’s craving for chocolate! These cookies are chocolatey, decadent and have amazing texture!!!!

Ingredients
  • ½ cup butter (make sure it’s softened at room temperature)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp instant coffee dissolved in 2 Tbsp of water
  • 1 Tbsp canola oil (vegetable oil)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 box devil's food chocolate cake mix
  • ½ cup dark chocolate chips
  • ¼ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • ¼ cups walnuts
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat oven to 350℉.
  2. Place softened butter and egg in food processor or mixer with paddle attachment, and beat till slightly smooth. I used my food processor and it worked great. Either will do just fine.
  3. Add in coffee, oil, and vanilla, and beat again till all is combined.
  4. Add in about ½ the bag of cake mix and beat mixture. Then, add the other ½ till fully combined.
  5. Add in walnuts and chocolate chips, and mix well till they are well incorporated.
  6. Roll dough into balls and place on baking sheet lined with parchment. You may be only to fit about 6 per baking sheet.
  7. Bake for about 10 minutes.
  8. Once out of the oven, allow to cool on the sheet for about 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack. They should slide off with ease from the sheet.
