If you are looking for a good cookie to go to in a pinch look no more. Chances are you found me from Cosmopolitan’s 16 Unexpected Things You Can Do With A Cake Mix. I always have cake mixes on hand. Lots of them in fact. You just never know when you will need one. Using the cake batter as the cookie mix takes all the hard work out of making cookies. You can use any flavor you like (I used yellow, but contemplated between french vanilla and white as well). You can also add in any other mixins that you want. The options are endless :)
Even though this photo brought you here, I wanted to update the photos. Enjoy the same recipe, only with updated photos as of June 2015!

In a medium bowl, stir together the cake mix and baking powder. Add eggs and oil, then mix until well blended. Stir in chocolate chips.

Allow cookies to cool on baking sheets for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
