This year I was excited to be able to participate in The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap. Money collected by each participate went to support Kid's Cancer through the organization Cookies For Kids Cancer. The cookie swap was a really fun event in that I received names and addresses of three fellow bloggers, and three bloggers received all of my information. No one knew who got who's name until you received your packages of cookies in the mail. As the deadline grew closer my boys waited patiently for our cookies to arrive and once they did we were treated to some delicious tasting treats and I have been introduced to some pretty amazing bloggers.
The cookies I made, packaged and mailed were Cake Batter Chocolate Chip Cookies. The recipe I used was a new to me recipe that I discovered from the blog Six Sisters' Stuff. Not only are they the easiest cookies to make, they are very yummy too!
For these cookies you will need:
1 (18.25 oz) box cake mix, any flavor
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. In a medium bowl, stir together the cake mix and baking powder. Add the eggs and oil. Mix until blended well and then stir in the chocolate chips. Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes. Let cool on pan for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
