Chocolate-chocolate Chip Cookies

Brace yourself because I’m about to share one of my most favorite and most used and requested recipes today!!  Many Christmases ago, a sweet friend of ours, Betsy, gave us these incredible cookies.  They are so so good.  Moist, rich, full of chocolate-which I LOVE.  I just can’t say enough good about them!!  EVERYBODY I have ever given or served them to LOVES them!!  My husband requests them often….they are just some of our favorites.  And they have become famous!!!  So I thought I’d let you in on the secret and deliciousness.  They are almost sacred.  They are the perfect comfort food for this rainy weather we’ve been having!!  And they are so simple!

Here’s what you need:  1 Devils Food Cake mix, 1/2 cup of vegetable oil, 2 eggs, 1 cup of milk chocolate chips and 1 cup of white chocolate chips.  I have tried other brands of cake mix but Betty’s works the best!

Put the cake mix, eggs and oil in the bowl of your mixer.  A stand mixer works best because it’s going to get pretty thick here.  But DO NOT ADD WATER or anything else other than the ingredients you see here!!  Resist the urge!!

Mix it all up and add both cups of the chocolate chips and mix again.  You don’t want to crush the chips so just mix until they are incorporated.

The best way to scoop out a cookie, is with a cookie scoop.  

This ensures that they are all the same size and will cook evenly.

Bake at 350º for 8 minutes.  I repeat, 8 minutes and no more.  They will look a little wet when they first come out but that’s ok.  Leave them on the pan to cool and they will finish cooking there.The result is a moist and chewy chocolate-chocolate chip cookies.  You can enjoy with a cup of milk…

I also make them into ice cream sandwiches…..are you all salivating??  You should be!!

And this is how I delivered them to some friends last night.  The silver tray is from the Dollar Tree and you can get a “basket bag” for about the same price and this was some scrap ribbon I had.  I think it just makes them a little extra special.I have made these with a gluten free cake mix and 1/4 cup of applesauce to replace the eggs.  They don’t translate completely but they are still good.  By the words “they don’t translate completely” I mean they don’t taste exactly like the originals.  :)  But my children enjoy them  and I hope you do too!  Click HERE to print the recipe.  And HERE for the Gluten and Egg Free version.

Ruthie is in a wedding this weekend….so we will be enjoying the fun festivities starting this morning!!  Beautiful pics coming soon!!  Happy Weekend!!

These look FANTASTIC in your pics! I tried them this morning—EPIC fail!!! I used all the same ingredients, but when I baked them 8 minutes they were still so uncooked that they were all goopy in the middle–even after cooling. Then, I decided to bake the next pan longer and they went all flat and crunchy on me. What in the world am I doing wrong??? Pleeease Help this cooking amateur!!! :)

Oh NO!! Hmmm….I’m not sure what went wrong. I’ve made these TONS of times. My oven is a convection but before this one I would sometimes take them out and test every minute or so after 8 minutes. Plus, humidity or weather can always play a part. If you lived closer we could make’em together and figure it out! 😉

You may also want to try bumping up your oven temp to 375 or maybe even 400….
