Amazing. Perfect, chewy cookies, just like Mrs Fields, except she didn't make them - you did! Feel free to share this time saving recipe with your friends (or keep it to yourself if you want to REALLY impress them.) Perfect to make when you have little or no time to bake or when you want to bake with your kids on the weekends or during the school holidays.
You can use any cake mix, even homebrand should work just fine, and you can make them plain or add chocolate chips or sultanas or nuts. Whatever takes your fancy.
You will need:
a packet of chocolate cake mix
60ml of oil (about a 1/4 cup)
200g block of cooking chocolate, chopped (big chunks)
1. Preheat the oven to 165 degrees fan forced (180 degrees normal), and line two baking sheets with baking paper.
2. Lightly beat the oil and two eggs in a bowl with a whisk or a fork and then add the cake mix.
3. Mix with a metal spoon until the dough forms, then add the chocolate chunks.
4. Form into loose walnut sized balls and place on the baking sheets, a couple of inches apart (don't flatten the balls - the cookies will flatten and spread during baking).
5. Bake in the preheated oven for ten minutes.
6. Allow the cookies to cool on the pan as they will be too soft to remove without breaking.
7. The cooled cookies will be crisp on the outside, chewy on the inside and might have a cracked appearance.
8. Pour yourself a glass of cold milk and plate up a couple of cookies - you may dunk or not, its up to you.
