 For some reason this week I am obsessed with cookies.

I really think it is because last week we were on vacation, and I ate anything and everything I wanted.  It was fun, for a while.  Unfortunately, eating like that isn’t great for summer clothes wearing.  I know summer is coming in just a few short months.  Time to back off the sweets again.

Drinking smoothies + eating heathy dinners = cookie dreams!

You would not believe how many new combos I have thought through…just in one day!  It must be the sugar withdrawals hitting me big time.  Maybe just one little bite wouldn’t hurt…

I had to giggle at my daughter last night.  My husband and I were discussing our food intake for the day, and he was telling me that I had plenty of room to have a protein bar if I wanted.  I must have been grumbling under my breath about this said healthy bar as I left the room, because all of a sudden I  heard laughing in the living room.

Apparently my daughter was informing my hubby that “Mommy, doesn’t want that kind of bar…she wants gooey bars.”  Man, does she know me or what!!!

Of course, now I have tons of ideas running through my head for gooey bars too…

These are one of my daughter’s favorite cookies.  Of course, anything cookies and cream related gets her vote.  Cookies get made at least once a week around here.  Then I have to really stay out of the kitchen because those cookies tease me.  I think they know that I am trying to cut back on sugar!

Cookies made from cake mixes are starting to become regulars around here.  I hope you don’t mind a few more variations that I’m thinking through.

It is a fun trick to turn a cake mix into cookies.  I like to add a little bit of cream cheese.  It makes the cookies so soft and incredible tasting.  Feel free to use your favorite mix ins.  Today we went with Oreo cookie chunks and two kinds of chocolate chips.  There is no right or wrong combo when it comes to these cookies.

Make sure you do not over bake them.  They will look under done when the timer goes off!  Trust me and take the pan out of the oven.  The cookies will continue to bake on the hot baking sheet!  Then when they cool completely, they will be set up and ready to eat.  Of course, I like to eat them warm and gooey!

I promise you these cookies will not last long enough to tempt you during the day.  My family gobbles them up in no time at all!

    Not sure it was a good idea to follow your blog Jocelyn… You are seriously bad for my waistline!! I made a batch of these cookies today and they are fabulous! Thanks for the new ideas!

  2. Dan says

    These seem delicious. What is the texture of the cooled cookie? Is it like a Toll House cookie or is it light like a cookie made with more egg whites? Hopefully I’ve explained the question well enough. I’m just not a fan of a cookie that’s too airy and was wondering before I headed into the kitchen. They look great! Thank you for any advice and for sharing.

    Your recipe looks great but I was wondering what kind of cake mix you were talking about was one of those packeted Betty Crocker or Greens? And do you make them per the packets instructions or just add the dry mix?

    These cookies should be named, “The best cookie you’ll ever eat COOKIE.” Made them as directed for church and they were absolutely wonderful. Not the prettiest cookie lol but taste divine :)

    Thanks so much!

    I’ve had this recipe saved for quite some time now and I finally decided to make it on a whim — I can’t believe I didn’t do it sooner! From the first bite, I was hooked. So. Freakin. GOOD!!!

    Made these cookies for a big family dinner, and was really depressed when they wouldn’t set, even after baking for 14 minutes. Left them out over night and the next morning, they were magically transformed into soft, but not too soft, perfect cookies. And they were a huge hit, so yummy! Thank you for recipe, I’m sure I will use again and again!

      Hi, Morgan. I am so glad they turned out for you. Yes, these cookies are very soft when they first come out of the oven, but they set up so nicely after they cool. I was a little worried when I read you cooked them 14 minutes, because I never do longer than 9 minutes. Glad to hear they still tasted great! :-)

  7. Lauren says

    Hi! These are my new favorites! I did have a quick question – am I supposed to use milk chocolate chips or semi-sweet chocolate chips? I think I have made it both ways but I was just wondering what you recommended. Thanks!

  8. Pallavi says

    Made a batch of these for my acappella team. Needless to say this group of college kids loved them! I decided to use mint oreos for a bit of a holiday variation, turned out perfect! No one could believe they were homemade. Make these cookies!! Such as an awesome recipe that you can customize and change up.

    These look AMAZING! Planning to make these for a superbowl party this weekend! I was just wondering if you use milk or semi-sweet chocolate chips??

  10. Noelle says

    These are the best cookies. I made a few modifications. I use chocolate chips instead the white chocolate chips. I also use Andes Peppermint Crunch Baking Chips in half of the cookies. I store them in an air tight container with a piece of bread to keep them soft.

  11. Nina says

    These look amazing, I can’t wait to try them. Personally, I’m not a huge fan of white chocolate so I usually use vanilla chips as a substitute – I’m thinking these would work perfectly in this recipe!

  12. says

    I just made these cookies and they turned out absolutely perfectly! I followed your directions exactly the timing and they the perfect cookie consistency of crispy on the outside and gooey inside. Thanks so much for the awesome recipe!

  13. Desiree says

    I can’t remember if I’ve commented before but it would be an injustice if I didn’t so here I go (maybe again!). These cookies are shamazing. I have made them countless times now because people (especially my brother and husband) keep asking me too. I also made them for my Church Youth Group who ran off with them in 5 seconds lol. Not to mention a million people have asked me for the recipe. The only bad thing is I wish I had come up with it hehehe:) Thank you so much for sharing I will be making these until forever!

      I think it will be just fine. There is so much cookie and chocolate chip goodness in the cookies, that I don’t think it will make a difference if it is a white or yellow mix. Keep me posted on how you like them!

  14. Liz W says

    I’m disappointed in these cookies. I baked them for 9 minutes. They didn’t look done, but I followed your directions because you said they wouldn’t. I let them sit on the pan for 3 minutes then transferred them to wax paper to finish cooling. I waited until they were completely cooled then took a bite of one and…they are not done inside! I feel like I just wasted my time and 36 cookies.

    • says

      I am so sorry to hear that you didn’t like the cookies, Liz. We make these and versions of these all the time, and we never bake them longer. Everyone does have different taste preferences though. I hope you saved them and give them another chance today…they really are amazing!

  15. C'Asia says

    This is my fav recipe ever! I loved the cream cheese addition. What would I need to add to make this into cupcakes instead?

  16. Jacki says

    Hi Jocelyn,

    These cookies look amazing! I am going to bake them soon. I was wondering about storage after these cookies are baked. Do the cooked cookies need to be refrigerated since there is cream cheese in them? How long do they typically last in an airtight container?

    Thank you!

    • says

      I just store them in a sealed container on the counter. There is no need to refrigerate them. They usually last a few days here…I think if I didn’t have kids eating them they would last 5-6 days. I hope you enjoy them!

  17. Katie says

    These are my new favorite! I have made them twice now and both times they were a HUGE hit. They stay soft in a sealed container, no need for the slice of bread like with regular chocolate chip cookies.

    The second time I made them, my family made them into ice cream sandwiches with cookies & cream ice cream! SO GOOD!!

    I cannot wait to try some of your other recipes! Thank you!
