But, being me, I felt the need to be creative, while still taking the easy route, and throw in some frugality (using whatcha got) for good measure. In August I bought a tub of chocolate sprinkles for the Dale's checkered-flag birthday cake. It didn't take nearly as many as I had thought. I had nearly the whole tub-full leftover!
Chocolate sprinkle-chips anyone?
I have not been impressed with cake-mix cookies in the past, but for some reason (using whatcha got) I decided to try again. I am so glad I did! These cookies were so good! Here is the recipe:
Easy, Yummy Cake Mix Cookies
1 box white cake mix
1/2 c. oil
1 tsp vanilla
Mix oil, eggs, & vanilla. Add cake mix. Add chocolate chips. Drop by tablespoonfulls onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake @ 350 for 8-10 minutes.
I didn't even use a mixer! These cookies were SO easy, and VERY good, and they used up some things that were just sitting around my pantry. And that Works for Me! For more WFMW tips, visit Shannon @ Rocks in My Dryer! :)
By the way.... I've already made these cookies again using a lemon cake mix. Omitted the chocolate chips and drizzled the baked cookies with a lemon/powdered sugar glaze. Yum!
