Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies

Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

These Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies are so good and super easy! 

I used a cake mix! There are directions on the side of the box, but I adjusted the recipe a bit for my taste.

  • 1 package of Dark Chocolate Cake mix
  • 1/2 cup melted butter (1 stick)
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon cream cheese (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup nuts (optional)
  • 1/2 cup raisins or dried cranberries (optional)


  1. Mix cake mix, butter and sugar together.
  2. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing between each egg.
  3. Add vanilla and cream cheese, mix well.
  4. Stir in chocolate chips, nuts and dried cranberries or raisins.
  5. Bake at 350° for 8-10 minutes.
