  • More Butter: I made this last night. It was awesome! My girlfriend liked it too! I did use the whole stick of butter, though. I'm sure Paula Deen would approve of that move!! -- Zack
  • Golden Buttery Cake Mix: I've done this recipe at least 3 times since I saw it. Sooooo good. I find it's better with the golden buttery cake mix. Stays moist for longer. -- Trish
  • Cookie Cake Sandwiches: I made this but used 2 small pizza pans to make cookie cake. After I cooked them I removed the cookies from the pans and covered one cookie with ice cream. Then I topped that with the other cookie and put it in the freezer. When I served it I drizzled chocolate syrup over the top. It was delicious. -- Kelly
  • Funfetti + Smashed Bananas: I've made these a few times with different cake mixes. I did a funfetti cake mix smashed banana and chocolate chips!

Cookie Bar Variation from Maura C.

If you want a cookie bar instead of cake, these are awesome too:

  • 1 Package yellow cake mix
  • 1 1/2 sticks butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cups sugar
  • Chocolate chips

Melt butter, mix ingredients together with chocolate chips and press into cookie sheet. Bake at 350. For 10 minutes.

I've made them with triple chocolate fudge cake as well! Always have ingredients on hand for my 15 year old and his friends
