Mix together the cake mix and the baking powder.

Stir it well with a fork or spoon. Set aside.

In another bowl mix the eggs, oil and vanilla.

Add the egg mixture to the dry ingredients.

Stir, stir, stir with a spoon until well combine. I did this just with a spoon. No need for the mixer.

Once well combine add in the chocolate chips. Combine well.

how to make cookies from a cake batter

Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.  This makes clean up a breeze!

Use a spoon to drop the dough in spoonfuls onto the parchment paper.

Ensure that you leave 1-2 inches in between each cookie.

Pop it in a 350° oven for 9-11 minutes. The cookies will brown lightly on the bottom and you may see some spot of browning on top of the cookies.

Once done, let them set until cooled. This makes super soft cookies! They are perfect!

Serve these up with a glass of milk.

My boys LOVED them!

Perfect for a Valentine party as well!
