1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Soften butter in a glass bowl in the microwave. Microwave for 30-45 seconds to soften the butter and make it easy to stir.
Use a rubber spatula to stir in cake mix, eggs and vanilla. Stir until smooth. Add in chocolate chips.
Use a medium cookie scoop (this is the size I use) to drop cookie dough on an ungreased baking sheet.
Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes. Cookies will be soft.
Allow cookies to cool slightly before removing from cookie sheet. Allow them to finish cooling on a wire rack.
Cookies best enjoyed fresh within a couple days. Store in an airtight container at room temperature. No refrigeration needed. Cookies also freeze great to enjoy later!
Makes about 3 dozen cookies, if using a medium cookie scoop.
