definitely not a good cookie recipe. The batter was very crumbly and the walnuts and chocolate chips would not stick. And after baking, they were very grainy. Baked 2 Pans, flattening and cooking longer for the 2nd round, but both batches came out unpleasant. Don't waste your time and money on this recipe!!

I added white chips instead and left out the nuts

Pretty good, although I dont normally make cookies with a cake mix. I added little caramel bits along with mini chocolate chips and pecans- YUM!

If I could give this recipe no stars I would. Worst cookie recipe ever. Complete waste of time and MONEY. As a baker I should have known better. No eggs? No flour? No water? Not even glue could hold these ingredients together.

I did try to give this recipe FIVE stars, too...but for some reason, it won't let me have more than four today...:)

I made this recipe recently with only 1 cup of real mayo, added 1 egg, and a little bit of water, plus a little bit of mint flavoring...I had a bag of chocolate and mint combo chips to add in, and yes...it was a fabulous result! They are soft and chewy, minty...really, really good and delicious! This is by far the best cake mix cookie recipe I've tried, and I plan to make up some more of my favorite combinations soon, using different cake mixes and pudding mixes and different "add-in" ingredients. I love this recipe!

These are some of the best cookies I've ever eaten. They are now my husbands favorite!

I don't think I'll make these again. The chips didn't stick in the batter well. Maybe I should have used 'real' mayo instead of Miracle Whip. I love the concept--they were easy and I got the full yield from the recipe. They would be great for kids to make.

I want to make these cookies, but am wondering if you can use light mayonnaise instead of regular.Bakerjane

This recipe sounds wonderful. I am going to add it to the rest of the cake mix cookie recipes I have. Thanks for sharing.
