I call them that because they sincerely tasted like those gourmet ones you might pick up at your grocer's bakery. They were easy to make and cost a fraction of the price you'd pay at the store.
Here's what you need: cake mix, eggs, butter, oil, vanilla, and chocolate chunks(not pictured).
Start by mixing together the cake mix, eggs, butter, oil and vanilla until blended together.
Stir in chocolate chunks and drop by teaspoonful onto baking pan with liner. Bake for 8-10 minutes and remove from oven. Allow the cookies to cool for a few minutes on the pan before removing to wire rack to cool completely. Enjoy with a tall glass of milk!
