Chocolate Cake Cookies
Birthday Recipe #2: These chocolate cake cookies were very easy to make. They definitely have a different texture than a regular cookie. I also couldn't believe they were made with mayo. I really really wanted to use low fat mayo and just see how they turned out. But...it said on the recipe that low fat is not recommended. If it wasn't D's party, I would have done it but I didn't want to have to find a replacement if these didn't work out. So, I bought and used full fat mayo. I would recommend a glass of milk with these sweet treats!
1 package (18-1/4 ounces) chocolate fudge cake mix
2 packages (3.9 ounces each) instant chocolate fudge pudding mix
1-1/2 cups mayonnaise
2 cups (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
In a large bowl, combine cake mix, pudding mixes and mayonnaise; mix well. Stir in chocolate chips and walnuts.
Shape by teaspoonfuls into balls; place on greased baking sheets. Bake at 350° for 9-10 minutes or until cookies puff and surface cracks slightly. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks. Yield: 7 dozen.
