To celebrate the return of Recipe Tuesday, I'm starting off with some extremely easy chocolate cookies. These are pretty much the same recipe I used for the lemon and strawberry bites in December, but with chocolate. I modified that recipe for my friend Seth; his birthday was last week, and he wanted something chocolate.
Easy Chocolate Cookies
1 box of chocolate cake mix
1 container of chocolate Cool-Whip
1/2 cup mini-chocolate chips (optional)
Preheat your oven to 350. Mix the cake mix, Cool-Whip, egg, and chocolate chips in a large bowl. Using a spoon (or your hands, but the batter will be very sticky), drop balls of batter into the powdered sugar and roll them around until they're covered. Place the balls on a greased (or parchment-covered) baking sheet about 1.5 - 2 inches apart. Bake for 10 - 12 minutes. Let them cool on a baking rack, and enjoy!
