Cake Mix Cookies V

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2011
I had some slightly outdated cake mixes that I wanted to use, and the first one was coconut cake. Found this recipe, and made it according to the directions, replacing the yellow cake mix with coconut cake mix, omitting the walnuts (my kids don't like them) and adding 1/2 cup of shredded coconut and 3/4 cup of chocolate chips. I baked them until they were just slightly browned. They just came out of the oven and they are excellent! They don't taste like other cake mix cookies I've made, which had a rather "off" flavor. These taste like little candy bars (think Mounds) in a cookie form. They are wonderful! I know I'll be making these again. Update: Made two more variations. In the first I used Butter Recipe Golden cake mix, increased the oatmeal to 1 cup and added 3/4 cup butterscotch chips. They were wonderful! The second variation used a lemon supreme cake mix, 1 cup oatmeal, 1/2 tsp. lemon juice and 3/4 cup white chocolate chips. We really liked these also, but not as much as the other two. Just a flavor preference. Our very favorite are the coconut chocolate chip. For all varieties, I used a small scoop and baked them rounded on the sheet, not flattened, and they cooked for about 11-12 minutes. I think the oatmeal might be the ingredient that makes these not taste so much like cake. I decide how much to add based on the stickiness of the batter, and add enough to make it more of a cookie dough, rather than a cake mix, consistency.
