Sous Chef Sunday: Lazy Cake Cookies

If Grandma’s cookies and your favorite brownie got together, this would be their love-child. And they’re glorious.

Moist and chewy, with the perfect amount of cookie taste. The sons love them because A.) they’re awesome and B.) because they almost always get a ‘yes’ if they ask to make them. I love them because A.) they’re freakin’ awesome and B.) because they’re so easy the kids don’t make a huge mess and I can finally eat a dessert I didn’t have to make myself. Everybody’s happy. Although, that could also be the after effects of the sugar high…Nah!

Never ones to be afraid of a little ‘flair’, the sons opted for pink/yellow Easter mini chips instead of the more traditional plain, ol’ chocolate. But, seriously, who doesn’t love a good cookie? Especially one with a little pizzazz.

4 Sons 'R' Us: Lazy Cake Cookies

Oh my. Pass the plate, please! *drool*

1 box yellow or white cake mix (you don’t have to stop there. Experiment!)
2 eggs, beaten
5 tbsp melted butter
2 cups chocolate chips or M&M’s

Directions

1. Mix together, put in a greased 9×13 pan and bake at 350 for 20 min! That’s it. Let them cool. Cut & serve!

When spreading the batter into your baking dish it’s OK if it doesn’t want to stretch out to fill the entire pan. Just make sure it’s as good as it will get and it will rise and fill as it bakes. To prevent the very sticky batter from sticking to your spatula and to make it easier, lightly grease the spatula before spreading.
