All by himself...

My child learned to make cookies. Good cookies. All. By. Himself. All that chocolatey deliciousness without lifting a finger. Maybe I can get him to start making dinner, too...

It IS an easy recipe, if you want to try it.

Quick-Mix Chocolate Cookies

1 box devil's food cake mix
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla

2 eggs

1 cup chocolate chips

1. Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, mix all ingredients with spoon until dough forms.
2. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. On ungreased cookie sheets, place balls about 2 inches apart.
3. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until set. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
Store tightly covered. Makes 30 cookies.
