Incredibly good...I used a buttery chocolate cake mix and added chopped pecans and mini marshmallows! After baking just stand back, the stampeding herd of wildebeasts (aka your kids and their friends) will make short work of the entire batch! LOL Next time I'll double the recipe. 5 stars!!

Not sure what I did wrong--These did not flatten out and stayed in the same shape that they were when I placed them on the cookie sheet. I followed the directions to a "T". I thought they looked VERY good from the recipe and picture, but probably won't make them again. Got any ideas what happened? I don't! BTW, I am a seasoned baker, not a "newby"

I would imagine you would have needed to flatten with a greased spatula or a glass bottom??

They look absolutely beautiful when you use an ice cream scoop (level it out) drop onto the cookie sheet, then press lightly to flatten. They will look professional an perfect.

Please help. Is the mix supposed to be this dry? I feel like Im missing a liquid...sigh

Dee--I felt that way too! The dough was very dry--Thought it needed more butter or another egg????

I just made these for the first time tonight. Was a little disappointed that they were not a little sweeter. I used the yellow butter cake mix and the mini chocolate chips. Then a separate batch used the same except added some sweetened coconut flakes. The coconut ones were better since they added a tiny bit more of sweetness.

PS. Dee- I thought the same thing but the more I stirred, I got the right consistency. :)

Mine came out plenty sweet. Not as flat as the ones in the picture though and I did smash them down with the spoon. I'm thinking they are suppose to be "soft" cookies and no amount of smashing is going to make them "crispy", but they were delicious! Thanks so much for the super easy recipe!

My 5 yr old daughter had fun helping me make these. We used Pillsbury White Funfetti cake mix and white chocolate chips. Very cute and so yummy!
