  • 1 15.25 ounce yellow cake mix (or any flavor)
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil (or melted butter)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup chocolate chips (or other mix-in, like M&Ms)
  • Powdered sugar for rolling


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line two cookie sheets with silat baking mats.
  • Mix cake mix, oil, and eggs with a hand or a stand mixer until a sticky dough forms. Stir in chocolate chips. If dough is too wet to handle, chill for 30 minutes.
  • Place about 1/2 cup powdered sugar in a small bowl. Scoop 2 tablespoon sized balls of dough and coat them with powdered sugar. Place on cookie sheets. Bake immediately (or powdered sugar will dissolve) for about 10-12 minutes. Cool at least 5 minutes before removing from cookie sheets.
  • Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days or freeze for up to one month.
