Chocolatey Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

One of my favorite cookbooks when I'm short on time is Quick Fixes with Mixes...."Great tasting desserts made with mixes."  I love to cook and bake, but sometimes I don't have the extra time to put into a "completely homemade" gift.....that's when I pull out a cake mix and whip up some cookies, unique cakes, pies, or some other delectable dessert from the above cook book.  Thought I'd share a recent cookie --- make with a chocolate cake mix

Chocolatey Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
2 eggs
1 (18.25 oz) German Chocolate Cake Mix
3/4 cup old-fashioned oats
3/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup coarsely chopped pecans (or walnuts)

In a large bowl, blend butter with eggs.  Stir in cake mix and oats.  Blend well.  Stir in chocolate chips and nuts.
Drop by heaping teaspoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Removed from oven and let cool on cookie sheet for 1 minutes.  Removed cookies to cooling rack.
Pour yourself a big glass of milk and ENJOY!!

Thanks so much for linking these up. From the look of your cookies, it is clear to me that you can never have too much chocolate. It always makes everything that much more delicious.

These sound divine! What's different about a german cake mix as compared to an ordinary chocolate cake mix though...? I've never seen german cake mix, don't think we have that over here.

Monique, The cake mix is a German Chocolate Cake mix ---- the kind you use a coconut icing with........but any chocolate cake mix will work. I didn't actually use what it called for myself --- think mine was something like a dark chocolate mix??
