"I recently made these cookies for a meeting at school. Not a one was left! They were very well received and the comments were: "They're so puffy and soft." "So chocolatey and delicious." I love that they start with a mix because sometimes you have little time to bake. While you probably could use regular size chips, the mini chips don't seem to take over the cookie."

"I doubled the recipe and used Andes Candies Mint Chips. They taste like a Thin Mint, but cakier! Love them! The batter is VERY thick, as prior posts said, but I loved the ease of just a few ingredient! Definitely will make this again!"

"These were easy to make which was great b/c the kids were helping me, but I didn't think they were that great. They aren't bad, they just aren't as good as regular chocolate chip:)"

"Very good. Used Betty Crocker mix and one batch became flat. I noticed the one batch where I had a smaller amount came out puffy."

"I made these (along with many other cookies) for a church function. These were a favorite and a little fun due to the name. I used Duncan Hines cake mix and I added mini chips and did some mint chips too-- they were great. Super easy to make and they are gone in seconds... Make 2 batches!"

"Betty Crocker is the brand to use with this recipe. They turn out flat with Duncan Hines. I know because I've made these at least 100 times and they are great!"

"This is a great recipe!!! I had two boxes of Devils cake mix so I made and double batch. Oddly enough I had only mint/choc. mini chips on hand and not the reg. semi-sweet choc. minis so I used the mint instead and I added about 2 cups of mini marshmallows. It was really hard to stir as the batter is very thick but the end result is REALLY GOOD(and you get some exercise in the process)!!!!! (-:"
