These cookies are so easy to make and everybody loves them. It's fun to experiment with different cake flavors, too. We've made these with coconut cake mix and added coconut flakes as well.

These cookies are easy to prepare and MUCH easier to enjoy.  We love the crunchiness on the outside and the gooey inside. The Test Kitchen
