I used a duncan hines dark chocolate fudge cake, 1 tablespoon of canola oil, instead of 1 cup semi-sweet chips only used 1/2 cup. Replaced 1/2 cup of semi-sweet chips with peanut butter chips. 1st tray 3" cookies baked 10 minutes...very flat and bottom over done, 2nd tray 2" cookie-pressed top down slightly - baked 8 minutes--very flat and overdone on the bottom. 3rd tray--2" cookie, baked 8 minutes - centers raw (all three trays were baked on a SILPAT and dark cookie sheet, as well as oven thermometer reading 350 degrees. 4th sheet - 2" cookie, baked 8 minutes using parchment paper...not much difference than the other 3 attempts. Not a good chocolate flavor or even a good looking cookie...not sure the kids will eat them:( Good thing the cake mix only cost .88 cents!!!
