Gourmet Chocolate Cake Mix Cookies

Not too long ago, I needed a treat to take to a friend's house for a pool party they were having. Of course, I hadn't been to the store and was scrambling to find ingredients for a batch of cookies. Then, like a beacon in the night, I saw a chocolate cake mix in the recesses of my pantry. (cue the Hallelujah chorus) I pulled it out and got right to work on these Gourmet Chocolate Cake Mix Cookies.

Gourmet Chocolate Cake Mix Cookies

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.
