I really, really like to eat healthfully . . . few prepared foods, no additives, etc.

But once in a while a recipe comes along and you make it and your kids taste it and think you are the very-best-cook-in-the-world.

And then you make the cookies for a bake sale and every kid in the class thinks you're the very-best-cook-in-the-world.

And then you get requested to make them every time there's any kind of sale.

And it kind of goes to your head and your concern for the health and wholesomeness in the foods you make is totally swallowed up in the thrill of "making something that everyone loves"!

Yes, I am that shallow.

Yes, these are those cookies!

Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 Box Devil's Food Cake Mix
1 Stick Butter
2 Eggs
1 Tablespoon Vanilla
1/2 Cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
1/2 Cup Milk Chocolate Chips

Combine cake mix, eggs, butter (softened), and vanilla.  Mix well.  Add chocolate chips.  Bake for 11 minutes at 350.  Pull out of oven when puffed but not looking completely done.  Let sit for 5 minutes to cool and set.  Do not overbake or they will be crunchy.


  1. Those look delicious. And probably easy enough for my daughter to make by herself. Yummy!

  2. I am so thinking that this is perfect for February 1st...the month of love and chocolate. Hugs to you deserve a few of these. xoxoxoxo

  3. Thanks for the recipe...they look awesome. (And your not shallow - just a great cooking-baking mama!)

  4. Oh yeah, I needed this! The recipe looks wonderful, and easy! Chocolate is always good! Thank you for sharing!
