Happy happy Friday! I’m super excited it’s Friday, are you? It’s December and time for another giveaway! This time there will be four winners. Four!
Recently, I was given an opportunity through Foodbuzz to give away Duncan Hines coupons for free products. I was given 2 coupons for free Duncan Hines products (up to a $3.99 value for each one), and then given 8 more to give to my readers. So I’m going to pick four lucky readers, each who will receive two coupons for free Duncan Hines products.
Even though I bake from scratch quite frequently, I like to keep a few boxes of cake mix on hand at all times in case of an emergency-no-time-to-bake-from-scratch type of scenario. I also like to keep them on hand to make cake mix cookies! I adore cake mix cookies. They have a homemade feel but without much work. What’s so great about Duncan Hines is that they carry red velvet cake mix, which I haven’t found with the other big cake mix brand companies.
I’ve made all sorts of cake mix cookies, but in December, I love making some festive red velvet cake mix cookies. The cookies pictured are ones I made last year. I plan on making them again soon. The cookies have a crispy exterior and fudgy interior. Yum.
To enter the giveaway, simply leave a comment at the end of this post, telling me your favorite flavor for cake mix cake or another unique way to use cake mix. Please note, this giveaway is only open to US residents. I will use random.org to generate 4 random numbers. Deadline to enter is Friday December 9, 2011 at midnight PST. If you are curious as to the winners of the past giveaways, I updated the previous giveaway posts with the winners so far here and here. Good luck!
Red Velvet Cookies
Yield: 2 dozen cookies
One box of Duncan Hines red velvet cake mix
Halfway between 1/3 and 1/2 cup of oil
1 cup chocolate chips
1. Prep baking sheets with parchment paper and preheat oven to 350F. In a large bowl, mix the eggs, cake mix and oil. Once the batter is thoroughly combined, stir in the chocolate chips.
2. Drop by large tablespoons onto baking sheets. I usually roll the dough between my hands to have a smoother, round shape, which helps make more evenly shaped cookies.
3. Bake for approximately 10-15 minutes. Cookies are finished when you can slide them, without the bottoms sticking to the baking sheet. (Baking time may vary. When I made cake mix cookies before, sometimes I needed to only bake them for about 8-10 minutes. But I had to almost double it for these cookies before they were done.)
