Quick Mix Chocolate Cookies

Here is another quick and super easy cookie recipe for you all!  This is one your kids can help make, too. 

It's called "Quick Mix Chocolate Cookies."  I am not sure where it comes from, I just have the recipe written down on scrap paper, so someone must have given it to me years ago.  I used to make these when Eric was a youth minister and we needed a quick snack or dessert.

1 box of Devil's Food Cake Mix {I also have used plain chocolate, too}
1/2 Cup Vegetable Oil
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
2 Eggs
1/4 Cup Sugar 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
In a small bowl measure out the sugar
In a medium/large bowl mix together, cake mix, oil, vanilla, and eggs with a spoon, a dough will start to form
Shape the dough into round balls, roll in the sugar, then place on an ungreased cookie sheet {I usually use parchment paper when making cookies, so easy!}
Space the balls about 2 inches a part so they won't run into each other when they bake
Bake 10-12 minutes
Cool about 1-2 minutes on the cookie sheet, then transfer cookies to a wire cooling rack or wax paper on the counter

Voila!  Quick, easy, and delicious!  Depending on how big you roll the dough balls will determine how many cookies you get.  I think I get almost 2 dozen, but I usually never end up with what the recipe says you will get.  And also for you calorie counters, there are only 70 calories in each cookie! 

I would love to share a picture with you all, but these don't last long in our house!  Enjoy!
