Preheat your oven to 350°. Seriously, this recipe is so easy if you don't to it now you will surely need to wait for the oven to achieve temperature after preparing all of the ingredients.
Some people don't like to use mixes to bake, preferring to bake from scratch. I however, always have cake mixes on hand for when a late night hankerin' comes on. Plus, like Carl Sagen said, "If you wish to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first invent the universe."
So these little homemade gems might use a mix, but they are so easy that if you can open a can and operate an oven, you're in business. Go to the next page for a ridiculously short list of ingredients.
Step 1: Ingredients

That's it. Seriously. No eggs, no oil, no water, no nothing. Just those 2 simple shelf safe ingredients can have you ready to make some awesome cookies in a moments notice. OK, 3 if you count the chocolate chips I'm using.
