Chocolate Chip Cake Mix Cookies - The Not So Creative Cook

It was one of those moments (again!) that my ingredient buddies want to end their lives. That time, it was the cake mix. I don’t know if I want to complicate stuffs or my life, but I want something out of the cake mix which is not a cake or cupcakes. I bought the cake mix for something else I could not remember until it reaches the point of giving up. After battling with my own thoughts, I opted for cookies. Well, because I am a cookie monster. ๐Ÿ˜€ The source recipe calls for white and chocolate chips, but I had only chocolate.
