Devil’s Food Cookies

It’s not uncommon to find a box or two of cake mix sitting on our pantry shelves any time of year. Cake mixes often go on sale for about a dollar each at the grocery store we shop at and in my opinion you don’t need a special occasion to eat cake.

But sometimes baking a cake—even with a mix—is more effort than I feel like making. So on a recent quest for something chocolate I decided to try something a little different with the box of Devil’s Food cake mix we had on the shelf. Cupcakes be damned. We’re making cookies.


Chewy, easy,  4-ingredient, chocolate cookies.

They didn’t last long.

    This is a great recipe! I am not much of a cook…basically, I am just super lazy. So, I was excited to find this recipe. I always have random cake mixes that I buy intending to do something fancy with. This sounds tasty and simple! My family will love them. Thanks!
