Lazy Chocolate Chip Cookies

You Will Need

  • 1 stick of butter (1/2 cup)

  • 1 bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips (12 oz bag)

Other Supplies Needed:

  • Non-stick spray

  1. Preheat the oven to 350° and grease a pan (whatever size you want)
  2. Melt the butter then mix it with eggs until combined.
  3. Add in the cake mix and mix again.
  4. Add the chocolate chips (oh yes, the whole bag!) and mix all the ingredients together.

  6. Bake for 20 minutes, if you choose smaller pans bake for 25 to 28 minutes (I baked these ones for exactly 25 minutes)
