Mix eggs and oil for 1 minute.
Add the cake mix and mix until all of the mixture makes a nice dough.

Step 2: Add chocolate chips, walnuts, and any other ingredient that you want to have in your cookies. Once the ingredients are all mixed together to dough consistency, take the 2 spoons and form little balls with the dough.

Step 3: Once the ball is formed on the spoon. place it on the cookie sheet with about one inch apart, to allow for the cookies to expand. If possible, about a dozen cookies can fit on the cookie sheet.

Bake the cookies for 15 minutes, or until golden brown. If you want, you can poke them or test them to make sure they are thoroughly cooked.

Step 5: Remove cookies from the oven and place them on cooling racks or on a dish to cool.
Once cookies are cool, grab a class of milk and enjoy.
