Embarrassing-ly Easy Chocolate Cookies

People may or may not know this, but mom and I had a craft business for many, many years called Hen and Chick.  We would peddle our wares at craft shows across the valley and eventually opened a storefront in Chino Valley for 2 years.  We tried to keep a country store atmosphere, handmaking most of the items.

One of the products we would distribute were these little recipe booklets from Jackie Ganaway. They were inexpensive and had good, tested recipes in them.  One book, "Lookie, Lookie, It's Going to be a Cookie!" had 50 recipes to make cookies out of cake mixes.

Our favorite is the Chocolate Cookies. They are the EASIEST cookie EVER!  The batch makes about 30 cookies, and we only have 9 left.  'nuff said.  :-)

Chocolate Cake Mix Cookies
1 box of devil's food cake mix

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix ingredients together and form dough into 1 inch balls. Roll in sugar.  Place on greased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake for 9-11 minutes until puffed and crackled. Cool on a tray.
