We have some serious issues to address today. Issues that left undiscussed could seriously change the course of our blogger-bloggee relationship. So here goes: WHAT is happening on Walking Dead? Since when do you start killing off main characters without any warning? Is Laurie really gone? Did the walker Rick found eat her? I think we know Carol is still in that jail somewhere, is she stuck? Injured? Who is on the phone at the end of last night’s episode? What huge secret is about to unfold in Woodbury? Did Mishone really leave or is she waiting somewhere nearby in case she is needed? PLUS…I really think Daryl is in love with Carol…don’t you? I feel bad that he thinks she is dead. Poor Daryl.
Ok, now that we have THAT out of the way, on to a couple other things. Cake mixes. I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again, do not discount a cake mix. Sometimes when people bake they’ll say things like “oh, well it’s just a mix. It’s not from scratch like yours”, oh people…..don’t say it. Cake mixes are awesome. Sure…preservatives and other dirty words are associated with cake mixes and all other store bought ingredients but sometimes you just can’t beat a cake mix. And sometimes….just sometimes….you forget that its your night to bring snacks to your small group bible study….and sometimes you don’t have anything other than a cake mix and some eggs in the kitchen. Because it’s monday. And the Walking Dead was on the night before and you were too busy pondering the real questions of this world instead of making your grocery list. I get it. So throw these bad boys together, no one has to know. While they moan and stuff their faces with more cookies, you can just smile and think to yourself ….”bet you think that’s from scratch huh?”. So here’s your line-up:
Cake mix. 2 eggs. 1/3 cup oil. Anything else you want to add or mix in. I chose chocolate chips, there weren’t any other options. I also added vanilla and almond extract because I felt like it. You don’t really have to have those things. Mix your cake mix, eggs, and oil together in a bowl.
Add your mix-ins. In the future, I plan to use chopped reese’s peanut butter cups. Or M&M’s. Or mint chocolate chips.
Drop by tablespoons onto an ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 8-9 minutes. Let sit for 5-10 minutes before removing to a cooling rack. I smothered mine in some leftover chocolate caramel frosting from this recipe. They didn’t really need it but more sugar is always better, right?
