FUDGE WALNUT CAKE MIX COOKIES

FUDGE WALNUT CAKE MIX COOKIES: Butter with a Side of Bread


As I near the end of my pregnancy I find myself wanting to make the easiest recipes possible in the shortest amount of time. What can I say- this bowling ball I’m carrying around gets heavy! I found this great cake-mix cookie recipe not too long ago and with just a few small changes it went from good to WOW! Really, it’s so easy and the cookies taste great and they look good, which is not something you can say about most cake-mix cookies!

Fudge Walnut Cake-Mix Cookies
Adapted from Chocolate Fudge Cookies on Allrecipes.com

  • 1 box 18.25 oz Devil’s Food Cake Mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil {or butter}
  • 1 heaping cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick spray.

Measure out 1/3 cup of coconut oil and stick it in the microwave for about 20 seconds to melt it. {It mixes better this way.}

MY LATEST RECIPES

Combine cake mix and eggs in a medium mixing bowl. Add melted coconut oil. Mix well. Mixture will be thick, so I used a Kitchenaid to mix it.

Add in chocolate chips and walnuts and stir to combine. {My Kitchenaid was useless for this part, so I hand-stirred the chocolate chips and walnuts in.} Cookie dough will be firm- see picture below.

Use a small cookie scoop to measure out dough and place on the cookie sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Once they’re done, remove from oven and let them rest for another 3-5 minutes on the hot cookie sheet. Transfer to baking racks to cool completely.

Makes 3 dozen cookies.
