packed brown sugar
1 (18.25 ounce) package
white cake mix

I made these last night. They were a big hit with my family. I used a yellow cake mix because it was what I had on hand. I added a little vanilla extract, two eggs, and a little oil. Delicious! Very easy to make, and a very quick clean up.
I did not like this recipe at all! The consistency was not that good, and the cookies came out out hard and not very tasty. Nothing like real home made cookies from scratch!
I added 1/3 cup of water as other suggested. I also added dried cranberries, white chocolate chips, and oatmeal. I have taken them to several parties and they have been a hit! Be sure to not over cook them - I take them out just before they look done because they firm up as they cool. However, the batch I left in the whole time were gone even though they were crispier.
I substituted Butter Pecan cake mix and added chopped pecans and butterscotch chips. They were GREAT!!!! Tasted like a pecan sandie but chewy.
I have made this many times. Always wonderful. You can make it as written and its great w/4 T. water, an extra egg, some vanilla extract and cook for 35 minutes. Thank you.
These were great! I, too, used 4 tbsp of water. Used a Betty Crocker Dark Chocolate cake mix w/Hersey's choc syrup in the box. Didn't use choc chips because I didn't have any (and didn't need any) but used 1-1/2 cups of chopped pecans. Made the house smell so good I couldn't wait so cut and ate two while they were still warm. Just wish I had some ice cream to put on top. Absolutely marvelous and still moist 3 days later kept in Tupperware. The only reason they lasted so long is because I live alone, plan on wrapping a few for the freezer before I eat them all. Can't wait to try different flavor variations. Thanks so much for posting Penny.
Pretty Darn Good! I used a chocolate cake mix, 4 Tbsp of water and baked for 25 min. I also stirred in a 1/2 package of Skor Bits (toffee bits) into the batter, and sprinkled the other 1/2 package on top of the hot bars as soon as they came out of the oven. My co-workers inhaled them. Nice texture---sort of like if cake and brownies had a baby.
Will definitely make again--super easy, great taste.
I made this yesterday because it seemed easy and I already had everything I needed in the pantry. I followed other suggestions and increased the water to 1/3 cup, and baked for only 22 minutes. I used white cake mix with 1 cup of white chocolate chips, 1/2 cup craisins and some nuts. The baking time was perfect so mine did not come out dry at all. Will definitely make again because they are so easy and quick!
