    I like to make these cookies and make an “oreo” with cream cheese frosting in the middle! So bad for you, but so delicious!

  • Becca

    I make these but always put frosting on so they are like sugar cookies…I end up eating them all!

  • Misty

    How many cookies do you get on average per box?

    TY! I made these when my sons were little and the recipe was on the box and somewhere over the years I lost it.

    We make them with chocolate cake and roll the dough around a rolo! Yummy carmel delish.

    My grandmother taught me to make cake mix cookies ages ago. However, her recipe involved using Cool Whip (or the generic, it didn’t matter) in place of the oil. So yummy.

    Then I was on Pinterest this morning and someone had some chocolate cake mix cookies with Rolo’s in the middle… They looked so good that I had to run out to the store to pick-up some Rolo’s despite not having a q for them!
