Quick Chocolate Chip Cookies from Cake Mix

I searched the internet looking for simple cookies to bake with the kids. This recipe requires one box of cake mix and your patience to work with your kids. Feel free to add whatever ingredients you like, but the base is the same, cake mix.  We used Pillsbury Yellow Cake Mix and chose chocolate chips as our add-in.

When I say the recipe is simple, you can do this with any child that is old enough to stand alone and stir a bowl. My son is two years old and he did an excellent job following directions.

Cooking is about having fun and learning. My daughter is older and she knows how to bake very well, but this gives us a time to bond, talk about measuring liquids, versus dry goods and more than anything we get to make a little mess and laugh. At the end of it all, the kids will have a great chocolate chip creation that they can be proud of, share with others, and a chance to eat their own work.
