Chocolate Chip Cake Cookies - Jenny Mac Style!

I ran across a blog the other day that had the most interesting cookie recipe on it. I had all the ingredients on hand and a large dose of curiosity - so I was off to make a batch! I found the recipe on Jenny Mac's Lip Smack blog. Check out her Crazy Cookie Cake Chippers. She made hers beautiful. I made mine fast. Check out the difference.

Chocolate Chip Cake Cookies
Adapted from Jenny Mac's Lip Smacking Crazy Cookie Cake Chippers

18 oz Vanilla Cake Mix
1/2 c. vegetable oil
2 eggs
1-1/2 cups crushed tortilla chips and pretzels
1 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Stir dry cake mix, oil/butter, 2 eggs, crushed tortilla chips and pretzels until dough forms.
Spoon batter out onto cookie sheet (I use a mini ice cream scooper to make them a uniform size as shown below)
Bake for 8-12 minutes.
Remove from pan after a minute or so and cool on wire racks!

My oldest daughter, Logan, helped me whip up a batch in about 5 minutes. These were quick, easy and yummy!
Thanks Jenny Mac!

When I make them again - which I will - I will only put in the pretzels. I enjoyed them more than the tortilla chips!

Pretzels in there? Yummy! I love cake box cookies so quick and easy.
You are the best mom in the world for making these yummy cookies!

Well, hers look very sophisticated, but I like my cookies simple. That's the point of a cookie isn't it, simple and delicious? I don't think the dough would make it to the oven in my house; we have too many cookie dough lovers!

Those cookies look great! I'm always looking to try new cookie recipes!

Your blog is beautiful! It really adds to your photos!

What an interesting recipe! I'm totally going to check out Jenny Mac's blog now. Your cookies look fabulous. I would love some dough and some cookies. I'm a both-ways type girl. Yum!

I think I'd like just the pretzels too... they would add a little salty to the recipe. This is a quick way to get cookies made!

I just can't wrap my head around tortilla chips in cookies. But the pretzels do sound interesting. I like that you make them with a cake mix.

Those look really yummy.

Love the cake mix cookie recipe, but sweet and salty is the best combo for any treat. Now I just need to make sure my daughter doesn't eat all the pretzels before they get into the cookies.

I saw these too! Aren't they cool sounding! Love the pretzel sticking out of there.
