Chocolate Chip/Pecan Cookies

These cookies are made with a box of cake batter, of all things....they are delicious and super-easy!!!

1 Box Duncan Hines Moist Deluxe "Butter Recipe Golden" cake mix
1/3 c. vegetable oil
2 eggs
1 cup or more chocolate chips
1 cup or more chopped pecans

Mix all ingredients until well blended. Use an ice cream scoop to scoop batter onto a greased cookie sheet. Using an ice cream scoop will ensure that all cookies are the same shape/size. Bake for approximately 12 minutes at 365 degrees. Keep an eye on the cookies and remove them from the oven a little bit before you usually would...this will make them nice and chewy. If you let them get too brown, they will not be as soft. Cool cookies on the pan for 10 minutes, then cool on a wire rack another 10 - 15 minutes.

***Be creative with this recipe! You can substitute almost any flavor cake mix or any flavor chocolate chips (ex: use M&Ms or chocolate/vanilla swirl morsels instead of chocolate chips). You can also substitute the pecans with another kind of nut like walnuts...or leave out the nuts completely!***
