Gooey Chocolate Cookies

Easy and inexpensive, and so good!

Ingredients:

  • 1 pkg. (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
  • 1 egg
  • Ad
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 pkg. (18 1/4 oz) chocolate cake mix
  • 1-2 cups chocolate chips and chunks of your choice,

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and butter until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Add cake mix and mix well (dough will be sticky).

Using a melon ball scoop, scoop dough on ungreased baking sheets, flatten slightly with fingers. Bake at 350 degrees F. for 9-11 minutes or until tops are set and cracked. Cool for 2 min. before removing from pans to wire racks.

* The original recipe calls for chilling for 2 hours and rolling into balls, but when using a scoop, this is not needed.

Experiment with cake mix flavors and chip/candy bar flavors.

Neufchatel cheese (1/3 less fat cream cheese) works just fine, no difference in texture or taste.

These cookies are so good, so quick, and so yummy, I had immediate requests to make more.
