3-Ingredient (Jello) Cake Mix Cookies

(This is a two-fer one recipe post...keep scrolling=) 

I love using shortcuts!  And 'doctoring' cake mixes.  These yummy cookies couldn't be easier or tastier. 

I know this recipe is all over the net, but I pinned it from Stephanie at Somewhat Simple

Add chocolate or white chips, toffee, or nuts...frost them and add sprinkles...dust with powdered sugar....whatever suits your cookie lovin' fancy. 

The ones here are chocolate cake mix cookies, and for the pink ones...I added a small box of raspberry jello (sugar free works too) to a white cake mix.  We have also enjoyed cherry jello with a chocolate cake mix. 

All very tasty. I love the chewy centers too. 

I've been making jello cake mix cookies for many years, and the 'regular' cake mix cookie recipe simply doesn't add the jello, so you get to choose to add it, or not.

1 (16 - 18 ozs) box cake mix 
2 eggs
1/3 c. oil

Preheat oven to 350. 
In medium bowl, mix (by hand) until blended and smooth.  Roll into 1" balls. Bake 7 - 9 minutes...adding another minute or three if making larger balls....just until the edges begin to brown.  Allow to cool 1 minute on cokie sheet before removing to wire rack to cool.
