Chocolate Butterscotch Cookies

These just might be my favorite cookies ever!  Super moist cake mix helps make these cookies irresistible. They are soft and chewy and full of butterscotch chips. Serve them with a cold glass of milk and you have the perfect afternoon or late night snack.

    I love your blog! You take great photos and these cookies look fantastic. I’ve had a cold for the past few days and have no sense of taste but I’ve been seriously craving cookies! I don’t want to eat any though until I can actually enjoy them :)
