Cake-Mix-Cookies * Cookie-Recipes


Cake mix cookies are one of the easiest recipes to make. They are great for kids trying their hand a baking. Of all the cookie recipes to try these will be a sure-fire success! It only takes 4 main ingredients plus the chocolate chips if you want to add them to your cookie recipe. There are so many variations. I love Cake Mix Cookies because they are so soft. These Double Fudge Cake Batter Cookies taste like little brownies in a cookie shape. They are perfect with a big glass of whole milk. YUM!

A few tips for making these cookies. The batter will be slightly crumbly. Do not use more than 1 cup of add in ingredients such as chocolate chips. More than a cup will make the cookies fall apart. They are sooooo yummy warm!



Double Fudge Cake Mix Cookies

  • One Chocolate Cake Mix
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup of vegetable oil
  • 1 cup of chocolate chips
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. In a mixing bowl add all the ingredients. Mix until everything is incorporated. The mixture will be slightly crumbly. This is ok. Scoop our batter to form 1-2 inch balls. Place on baking sheet evenly spaced apart. Bake for 8-10 minutes. This will depend on your oven. The cookies will be soft and firm up a bit after cooling. Cool on cooling rack and serve with ice cold milk.

Enjoy!

As long as I can remember that Folger's Wakin' Up jingle has been a part of my memories. In fact, it has been around for 32 years. When I see the Folgers can in the cupboard or as I walk past it in the grocery store the jingle immediately comes into my head. Do that happen to you too? Every time I hear it come on I sing along. It's such a fun cheery song. I was that little kid that went around singing the commercial jingles. I loved singing. I even loved singing them so much I use to burst out in jingle singing during church. My mom wasn't too happy when one time I started singing an old beer jingle on Sunday right in the chapel in the middle of Sunday services, HAHA.



Folger's jingle contest is back with a big old prize of $25,000!! What would you do with an extra $25K? A vacation, a shopping spree, a day at the spa, pay for your kids' college or even a new car?

I was just watching some of the past winners and they are pretty darn good. I especially like the entry by Sawyer and no it’s not just because his mother was smart enough to name him Sawyer like I named my son ;)
Check them out here; past winners

Wouldn’t it be fun to get together with some friends, family or even your kids and write your own version of the Folger’s Jingle? I love the photo above of the father-daughter duo.
