Recipe Tuesday: Easy Chocolate Cookies

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 egg
1/2 cup mini-chocolate chips (optional)
powdered sugar

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!

wow - it IS easy sounding! But I never have those ingredients on hand. and talk myself out of buying cake mixes, usually. I am thinking about making some oatmeal cookies - maybe today. I'm feeling a bit inspired.

is this a dupl!?!?

nevermind - I'm trying to switch my google pswd so I'm confusing myself.
