Before making these cookies, I read the reviews and decided to make my own adjustments and the cookies came out perfectly! Oven should be 350. Use 1 Cup butter, omit the shortening, use 2 EGGS and cream them with the butter, brown sugar and water. Follow the recipe as directed. Use 1 TEASPOON per cookie, they really spread out if you use too much batter. Make these adjustments and you will really be pleased with the results!

I picked this recipe because wanted to get rid of a German Chocolate Cake Mix that I bought instead of regular chocolate cake mix. I followed the recipe but added 1/2 cup of chocolate chips and 1/2 cup of dried cranberries. These weren't chocolate enough for us. Super easy to do. If you stick with the shortening instead of all butter, the cookie will not spread out that much. Infact, after the first batch I had to smash them flat with the back of a measuring cup, because they stayed too round.

This was excellent. I used peanut butter chips and devil's food cake. They don't spread very much, so you might want to flatten cookies slightly if you are making balls with a scoop like I did.

EXCELLENT! I followed reviewers' suggestion and used 1 cup butter instead of the margarine & shortening and 2 eggs instead of just one. Also, I cooked it at 350 degrees for 9 minutes. DELICIOUS!!!!! Thanks for this recipe! I finally hit jackpot after looking for so long! And to think you use cake mix!

These cookies are easy to make and quite tasty. I used 2 whole sticks of butter instead of shortening and margarine. i also used regular sugar instead of brown. Dried cranberries instead of chocolate chips.
