    Very good cookie. I'd say the best cake-mix cookie I've made off this website. It is an oily batter and I think the cooking time needs to be increased by 2-3 min. or else you get a very wet, moist cookie that collapses when you pick it up. I use large walnut size dough balls and bake it for about 13 min. Even with this cooking time, the cookies still comes out super moist and stays pretty moist for a few days. I think the recipe could take less oil - 1/4 - 1/3 cup should be enough. Overall, very fudgy and moist and the only cake-mix recipe that actually taste homemade. I will make this recipe again.  -  22 May 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    While these can't compare to a homemade chocolate cookie, I'll give them four stars keeping in mind they're a cake mix cookie. They're chewey, and definitely "moist." I'm just not sure if they're "fudgey" or "greasy." The taste is okay, especially since I added 1 tsp. of chocolate extract, but I find the oily dough off-putting to begin with, and the finished cookie is just a little more "moist" than I would like. Maybe cut back a little on the oil to, say, even 1/3 cup?  -  10 Nov 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I made these cookies about a month ago and they were delicious! I tried making them again and substituting applesauce for oil, and they did not turn out.  -  20 May 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
