Double Chocolate Cake Mix Cookies

Some days you just need a double dose of chocolate in order to make it to bedtime.  Am I right?  If you ever find yourself in need of a chocolatey "pick me up", this is the perfect recipe for you... double chocolate cake mix cookies.

My version of these easy to make chocolate cookies is adapted from one I found here.

You'll need:
1 (8oz) block of cream cheese at room temperature
1/2 cup butter at room temperature
1 egg
1tsp pure vanilla extract
1 box Duncan Hines extra moist chocolate fudge cake mix (or another high quality cake mix)
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

1)  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2)  In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to combine the cream cheese and butter until smooth.  Then, beat in the egg, the vanilla, and the cake mix.
3)  Use a wooden spoon to mix in the chocolate chips.
4)  Refrigerate batter for 1 hour.
5)  Scoop tablespoons of batter onto an ungreased cookie sheet, and bake for approximately 12 minutes.

Trust me... if you are a chocolate lover, you will not be disappointed by these soft and delicious cookies.  They are perfect with a glass of milk!
