I made these last night just because I wanted something butterscotch and I love chocolate. The cookies were great -- very, very rich and soft. My brother loved them. And, I would've pigged out on them with a glass of milk if I weren't dieting. So, I'm giving 5 stars for the finished product. I have to say that the cookie dough was kind of gross -- way, way too oily. I was wringing the oil out as I rolled them. I have a couple of cake mix cookbooks and many of the recipes require 1/3 c. oil, 2 eggs, the cake mix, and whatever. Next time, I may cut back on the oil a little bit and see if the cookies still turn out as good. Also, I baked the cookies on parchment paper which may have helped in soaking up some of the excess oil during baking.


This is a great recipe, I've been using it since I was little. I use it so many different ways. Yellow Cake mix with Chocolate Chips is the most common. Any cake mix with any bag of chips or candies works great. People rave about them whenever I make them. My boyfriends favorite is the chocolate with butterscotch but my roomates is Lemon cake with white chocolate chips. The possibilities are endless. I'm glad to see other people using it as well.


I agree these cookies are easy to make. However, they are very rich. The cake mix and butterscotch chips don't mix well.
