Wink Cake mix cookies

today i wanted something chocolate and crunchy. no flour in house, so took a fudge cake mix. added two eggs and 1/2 cup oil, for the basic cookie mix. took about a cup and a half of special k ceral and crushed it with meat pounder , in a bag of course. put that in cookie dough.

they are really, really good and filled my want.

ps, cheap too, only paid a dollar for cake mix. three doz cookies

babe

Are these the cake mix cookies you were talking about in the other thread?? LOL.
Thanks for the recipe, it does sound good. DW is not a huge chocolate fan, so maybe I might try a lemon cake mix and shredded coconut or something?

Sorry I wasn't very clear, I meant you mentioned cake mix cookies with Special K (I think it was you, maybe I am loosing my mind? LOL) in another thread in passing, and I asked what they were.
Then this thread showed up, so now I know, cool!

Now I need to add lemon cake mix and shredded coconut to my grocery list! And the Special K and brownie mix as me and the kids would love that, and DW will eat the unused Special K as she loves that!

i am glad u are trying it. the yellow mix make a pretty fair imitation of sugar cookies.

i looked for cookies called special k cookies but found i had no flour. too much bread making i guess.

enjoy

You're a genius! Thanks for posting this. I am going to try it tomorrow! Yum! I keep those brownie mixes on hand for when I 'NEED' an easy chocolate fix. Glad to have an easy variation to do with them.

Made these last night. I used the Lemon Supreme cake mix, two eggs, 1/2 cup veggie oil, and 2 cups shredded coconut.
DW can't believe just how good they were, and that they basically came from a cake mix! Super moist and very flavorful. It made 25 large cookies, none left over!!
