Try It Tuesday Cooking Badge


I love cookies. And cake. Basically anything sweet, I’m all about it! Something I don’t love? Baking.

I don’t like gathering countless ingredients, making a giant mess, and then having to clean it all up. So yeah, I can be a giant bummer when Huff the Tot wants to make cookies. However, all that changed this week when I saw this recipe:


A chocolate chip cookie recipe that requires minimal ingredients? YES, PLEASE!

Here’s what you need:


1 box Betty Crocker Butter Recipe Yellow Cake Mix

1 bag Nestle Toll House Semi-Sweet Morsels

½ cup Canola or Vegetable Oil (I used EVOO; I don’t know if it makes a difference or not)

2 eggs


First, mix up the cake mix, eggs, and oil. The batter will be THICK. So thick that your beaters may get stuck and fall out of your handheld mixer…



Next, stir in the chocolate chips and refrigerate for one hour:





After an hour, preheat your oven to 350. Roll the dough into small balls and place the dough on lined cookie sheets:



Bake for 7-9 minutes, let cool, and enjoy!



These were really good! They’re not a permanent substitute for homemade chocolate chip cookies, but they are REALLY tasty and the batter made a ton of cookies!
