Here in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, and Maryland the weather has been brutal. Today, the kids were released early from school because of the cold temperatures and freezing rain. The College Football National Championship game coming on tonight and it’s a perfect time for some quick cookies.
I usually bake these cookies when I want something sweet yet quick to bake and eat. Tip: Use a small ice cream scoop to form balls of dough, and they’ll bake into gorgeous, perfectly round cookies every time.

1 (1 lb. 2.25-oz) pkg Chocolate Cake mix
