Chocolate Cheater Cookies

~ A recipe for chocolate chocolate chip cookies that is so easy it must be cheating…

Cookies and milk are the perfect after school treat. I was too tired to make anything elaborate, but these cookies are so easy!

The recipe was in a Gooseberry Patch Cookie cookbook. I’ve made it several times and it is so easy that I changed the name of the cookies to “Chocolate Cheaters.”

You take one devil’s food cake mix, 2 eggs, half a cup of oil, and a cup of chocolate chips and stir ‘em up in a bowl.

It’s really that easy. See what I mean about cheating?

You got a little cookie scoop? You know what I’m talking about? They are those nifty measured scoops like the lunch ladies used, except they are super small. Just right for scooping cookies. You must get one. I turned my little man loose with the cookie dough and the scoop.

Bake at 350 degrees until they are done, about 7 or 8 minutes. Yum.

Add a maraschino cherry…. Oh dear!

Just don’t make these when the kids are away. You’ll eat them all and not fit in your pants for a week. Just ask me how I know…
