A super easy to make chocolate biscuit recipe that uses chocolate cake mix. You can vary the recipe, add white chocolate chips or chopped nuts instead.
I took the repeated suggestions of other reviewers and added 2 T. of vegetable oil and 1 tsp. vanilla. For more intense "chocolatiness" I also added 1 tsp. of chocolate extract. I don't know if these additions and changes were necessary, but I do know this was one fantastic cookie! Everything was just perfect--it's an attractive cookie, perfectly shaped (I used a small ice cream scoop), kind of almost pebbly on the top. The texture was also perfect-- a little crackly, chewey on the outside, and melt-in-your mouth soft on the inside. Instead of chocolate chips I used chopped Andes mints, and the taste combination was out of this world, with no hint of cake mix taste. The flavor variations with this recipe are, of course, endless, but I enjoyed this combination so much I don't know that I'll bother trying it any other way. I do know, however, that I won't be making this with a yellow cake mix as the cake mix taste is hard to cover up. I also know this is only the first of many times I will come back to this easy and delicious recipe. - 03 Dec 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Oh man, this is the BEST basic cake-mix cookie recipe. I love strawberry cake, so that was the mix I used and added 1 cup white chips and 1 cup pecans and it made the most yummy cookies. I used a 2 tsp. scoop and made 44 2-inch cookies. I've noticed with this and other cake mix cookie recipies that the cookies do not spread while baking, so unless you want puffy round drops, you need to flatten the cookies out a bit before you put them in the oven. - 06 Nov 2004 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
WOW WOW WOW! I've been a baker all my life and wanted to find an easy cookie recipe to make with my 4 yr. daughter and this one takes the cake. I've tried 3 other cake mix cookies from this site, and this is by far #1. You can use any kind of cake mix, I like Butter Yellow because is gives a nice buttery taste and I took another reviewer's advice and added 2 tablespoon oil. This keeps the cookie SUPER moist. Definitely an 8 min. cookie if you want moist & chewy and stays this way for days--if it last that long in your house. Great to make with kids, many variations possible and good for giving or when you're in a pinch. Look no further for the 'short-cut' cookie recipe!! I love these! (and so does my waistline)- Aahh! - 24 Oct 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
