Do I HAVE to freeze the cookie dough?

Since this chewy chocolate chip cookie recipe is made out of cake mix, yes. I find that freezing the dough is the most helpful in the formation of the cookies. Without freezing it, the dough would be more runny like cake mix.

How to make chocolate cookies out of cake mix:

  • beat together all ingredients except chocolate chips, then gently stir in the chocolate chips.
  • freeze the dough for 30 minutes
  • after 30 minutes, scoop dough onto sprayed baking sheet using a cookie scoop or heaping tablespoon. Bake!

How will I know when my cookies are done?

I believe my cookies are done when the edges are firm and slightly more brown than the rest of the cookie. When I take my pan out of the oven, I leave my cookies on the pan for 1 extra minute to finish baking. Then, I remove them from the pan and place onto a cooling rack. Do not wait longer than 1 minute to remove the cookies from the pan. This will result in them being extremely hard to get off.

How to store soft chocolate chip cookies:

If the cookies are already made:

  • eat right away-store cookies in an air tight container at room temperature for one week
  • eat later-these cookies are freezable! Store in a freezer safe container in the freezer for about a month.

If it is just the dough:

  • if you want to make the dough and use it at a later time, it keeps very well covered in the freezer! This way you can have the dough made in advance, and can make these quick double chocolate cookies even quicker when you want them.

Notes

Baking note: Everyone's oven is different, so I recommend setting the timer for 8 minutes for the bake time and going from there. To me, it is best to have these chocolate chip cookies underdone and able to cook for a few extra minutes longer if needed after checking them the first time versus set the buzzer too high and have to take them out burned. Once they are burned, there is no going back.
