Give that Pin a Try: Lazy Cake Cookies

I have an obsession with Pinterest (and I know I'm not alone)!!  I've been pinning things for months, but I rarely have time to actually try things out - whether it's a recipe, craft or cleaning tip.  So while I'm on Summer Break, I'm going to try to do at least one thing that I pin each week and then I'll blog about it.

Yesterday, I came across this recipe for "Lazy Cake Cookies".  They looked delicious and sounded super simple (and I actually had the 4 ingredients in my pantry) so I whipped them up.

1 yellow cake mix, 2 beaten eggs, 5 TBSP melted butter, 2 cups chocolate chips

The boys were really interested in my spatula so I gave them each a spatula and a mixing bowl filled with some toys they could mix up.  

They LOVED it!!

I guess I forgot to tell them to keep their batter in the bowl!

But, Back to the cookies...

They were by far the easiest cookies I have ever made and they tasted great.  Half the pan is already gone...oops!  I guess that means Andrew thought they were good, too!  Since I used a dark coated pan, the only thing I would do differently next time is bake them at 325 instead of 350, just like with brownies.

So if you need a quick treat, definitely give these a try!!  

The next pin I'm going to try out is a way to "de-funk" your bath towels.  They are actually in the wash right now, so hopefully I will have some fluffy fresh smelling towels to share about soon!

Thanks for stopping by!
