tasty tuesday

this is the easiest cookie recipe ever.
it is easier than scheduling my tuesday blog post apparently. i wrote it up and didn't actually post it. just saved it as a draft. oops!

Chocolate Fudge Cookies

1 (18.25 ounce) package devil's food cake mix

2 eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.

2.In a medium bowl, stir together the cake mix, eggs and oil until well blended. Fold in the chocolate chips. Roll the dough into walnut sized balls. Place the cookies 2 inches apart on the cookie sheet.
3.Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

**my modifications**
of course i never follow recipes word for word... so here's what i changed.
1/2 cup is waaaaay too much oil. i use 1/4 cup.
i use mint chocolate chips.
i do not roll the dough. i just drop it onto the pan with a spoon.
any chocolate cake mix is fine. it doesn't have to be devil's food.
i am interested to try different cake mix flavors... i think i might try lemon cake mix with white chocolate chips.
