Chocolatey Chip Halloween Cake Mix Cookies

Hi there! I have recently retired from nursing and as such, I have a bit more time to do blogging--this will be my third post in just over a week.  I have had some health issues at play for over a year and one year I will write about that. I didn't do much blogging during my treatments so trying to make up for lost time lol.

Today I am sharing another Cake Mix Cookie recipe. Easy to mix up and bake--I make them often for family and even send some to my husband's work (though he retired recently, too) or some of my kids take them to work to share. I love it when my son, who works at a gold mine nearby, takes them to work and employees from other departments come to his office and say, "I heard your mom made cookies. Still have some?" I guess I've made a name for myself with my cookie-baking skills.

Here's the recipe:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

One Betty Crocker Super-Moist Chocolate cake mix (that is the brand I have always used)--choose from Milk Chocolate, German Chocolate, Fudge, etc.

2/3 cup shortening

2 eggs or 1/2 cup pasteurized liquid egg product

Add half the dry cake mix to a mixing bowl, add the shortening and the eggs, mix well. Add the other half of dry cake mix and mix again. 

Add 1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips to the dough (or M and M's to match the season, white chocolate chips, etc.) and stir by hand.

Scoop about a 1-inch ball of dough, flatten with hand and place on ungreased baking sheet or sheet with parchment paper. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 8 minutes, depending on your oven.

As cookies are cooling on pan, add a white melting chocolate chip to center of each cookie (I used Chocomaker White melting Chocolate). As chip melts, add a few Fall or Halloween sprinkles to garnish.

Remove from sheet after about 5 minutes and place on cooling rack. 

The melting chocolate will set up in a few minutes. Store cookies in a sealable container, if they last that long lol.
