1 (18.25 ounce) package devils food cake mix
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
2 tbsp oil
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Add all the ingredients into a bowl and mix together. I just used a fork to mix them all together. No need to dirty a whisk.
Form them into little balls, and slightly flatten them with your hand. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove and use a spatula to transfer them on to a cooling rack. They will be soft and feel not so done, but when cooled they will firm up. Cool completely and store in an airtight container for up to a week.
Verdict: The cookies puffed up like cakes when out of the oven, but on cooling they flattened. They were like a cross between a cake and a cookie, in the sense that they were not very crisp, not very cakey. But the taste was great and chocolatey. The nuts were a good addition. I am still going to stick to my original chocolate cookie recipe that is from scratch. But, this is going to be my go-to recipe for a quick treat.
Here is a picture of my son after devouring an entire cookie(sans the nuts of course)
I am sending these cookies off to Versatile Kitchen for the weekly Bake-Off Event. I have participated twice in this event already, and now that I think of it, this is going to be my first sweet dish.Pin It
