    Baking these with my little cousin right now. They’re making my house smell amazing! Can’t wait to try them (:

    I just realized today that I always read the reviews before I make any new recipes but I never actually leave reviews myself. So here goes….these were amazing!! Super simple which made me a little skeptical but they are very moist and delicious!!! I will be making these again!!

    These are FANTASTIC. Super easy, and the whole family devoured them. I added Reeses Pieces to some of them, but they were equally delicious with only the butterscotch chips. I’m making two batches for a cookie exchange. Definitely a winner!

    I’m making these cookies right now and it says cook for 9 mins mines don’t look done I’m scared to over cook them but I left them in longer

    I have to say that I was super skeptical about using a cake mix for cookies. I was afraid they’d come out more cakey than cookie. I’m so glad I’m wrong! My only tip is to not use the entire 11 oz. bag of chips. The dough had a hard time holding it’s shape because there was more chips than dough. I’m going to try this recipe with different cake mixes and chips now. I’m looking forward to trying strawberry cake mix with white chocolate chips.

    Every time I have made cake mix cookies they end up getting really hard the next day. How do you store them to keep them soft?
