I generally NEVER use a box mix for anything but I was feeling lazy and just happen to have a cake mix in the cupboard. I dusted off the box and changed up the recipe a bit. The cookies cooled and everyone loves them. Soooo… for an easy quick cookie fix here is a good one.
1 package devil’s food cake mix
1/4 cup water
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 large egg
3/4 cup chopped toasted almonds
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine cake mix, eggs and oil. Mix well (dough will be thick and sticky). Roll tablespoonful’s of dough into balls. Press caramels into each and reshape. Press tops of cookie balls into chopped toasted almonds and place an inch apart on a cookie sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes. Cool for 2 minutes before moving to wire rack. Yummy!
