These have to be the easiest chocolate chip cookies in the world to make. This recipe makes use of devil's food cake mix to save time and bother.
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)
