    I have made these cookies several way. My favorite was strawberry cake mix with white & chocolate chips. Quick & easy if you need a fast cookie. Definately a keeper

    These cookies are very easy and quick to make. I made 2 batches in no time. Everyone thought they were very good. What's not to love...chocolate and peanut butter!

    These are okay, but too rich for us. I made them with a yellow cake mix and chocolate chips because I had them on hand. The batter was so thick that I had to mix in the chips with my hands.
