  • 1 box chocolate cake mix 15 oz
  • ½ cup vegetable oil or melted butter
  • 2 eggs lightly beaten
  • ½ cup butterscotch chips
  • ½ cup chocolate chunks


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • In a large mixing bowl add cake mix, eggs, oil and mix until combined. The dough will be sticky. Mix chocolate chunks and butterscotch chips in.
  • Using a medium cookie scoop, drop dough on the baking sheet 2 inches apart.
  • Bake for 10 to 12 minutes until the tops are set. Cookies will be soft but will harden once cooled. Place a few chocolate chunks and butterscotch chips on top of each cookie while they're still warm.
  • Transfer the cookies to a cooling rack.



Once cooled, store the cookies in an airtight container for 3 to 4 days. Note that the cookies will become soft and cake-like as they sit. Can be stored in the fridge too.


Once cooled, store the cookies in an airtight container or bag and freeze for 3 months. You can warm it in the oven at 350F for a few minutes.
