Maybe I'm just an old fart, and this recipe has been around for ages....I just tried these cookies at the rugby potluck and they're made from devils food CAKE MIX!! I tried to make this minus the chocolate chips & walnuts (which probably would've made it taste a whole lot better) but instead, I had Hershey's Kisses so I used those instead... it was good... If you're wanting to try a sweet treat this summer, here is the recipe...GOOD LUCK!
1 package/box plain devils food cake mix
1/3 cup water
4 tablespoons butter (1/2 stick), MELTED
1 large egg
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)

Place rack in center of oven and preheat ove to 350 degrees. Lightly grease pans (if using non stick spray) & set aside.

Place cake mix, water, melted butter, and egg in large mixing bowl and blend with electric mixer on low speed for 1 minute. Stop & scrap sides of bowl with rubber spatula. Increase speed to medium and bea for 1 minute more. The cookie dough will be thick. Fold chocolate chips and nuts into batter until evenly distributed.

Drop heaping teaspoons of the dough 2 inches apart on the prepared cookie sheets. Place the pans in the oven. If both pans cannot fit on the same rack, put one pan on the rack above and rotate pans half way through baking time.

Bake the cookies until they are set but are still soft in the middle 10-12 minutes. Remove pans from oven and let cookies rest on the cookie sheets for 1 minute. Remove the cookies with metal spatula to wier racks to cool completely (20 minutes).
