Cake Mix cookies that taste like a delicious bowl of chocolate cereal!
A simple recipe with tasty results. I've made cake mix cookies before - but these are my new favorites. I was skeptical about using the cake mix that has the pudding in it already, but I think that's what made them so unique. They are literally like eating a larger, softer, chewier version of coco puffs. Yay!

  • Step 1

    Preheat your oven to 350.

  • Step 2

    With electric mixer combine cake mix, softened butter, and eggs. It will look kind of dry and pasty, but it will hold itself together once you're scooping it out.

  • Step 3

    Scoop dough onto cookies pans lined with parchment paper.

    Now I'm a little bit of a perfectionist, but I can't tell you how useful using an actually scoop (aka disher) is for making cookies. I picked one up a while back (I think at Target - but it may have been William Sonoma - yay gift cards!) Just for size reference it's smaller than an ice cream scoop, and probably holds 1-2 tablespoons (I'm not sure).

    Here's the why of scooping out cookies that are all the same size: they bake evenly. You don't have to worry about burning the smaller ones, and all-in-all they just have a nicer look to them. Nice rounded edges too. And this way, you don't have to get your hands dirty trying to roll perfectly little dough balls. Consider yourself soap-box'd.

  • Step 4

    Bake for 8-12 minutes depending on your oven. Let them cool on the cookie sheet for at 5 minutes, and then finish on a cooling rack.

  • Step 5

    Enjoy! I personally like to dunk mine in milk - it really completes the whole cereal/cookie idea!
