How to make cake mix cookies.
Step One: prepare.
Preheat your oven to 350. Prep two cookie sheets for nonstick (I use parchment paper).
Step Two: Make the cookies.
Place the dry ingredients from the cake mix in a mixing bowl.
Add the vegetable oil and the eggs to the bowl and mix until just blended.
Fold in the chocolate chips and toffee bits.
Step Three: Bake the cookies.
Use a cookie scoop to place the cookies on to the prepped cookie sheets, leaving a couple of inches between cookies. Bake for seven to nine minutes or until the edges begin to turn golden brown.
Allow the cookie trays to set on a cooling rack for a minute before removing the cookies. The cookies should then finish cooling on a wire rack.
