I got this recipe (thank you!) from Kari, another Marine wife here on Okinawa. Her blog, Cloudy with a Chance of Crazy, has some really fantastic bento box ideas for kids.
Because these cookies are made from spice cake mix, they have a unique texture to them. They're light and fluffy with rich, creamy chocolate treasures tucked in them.
- 2 boxes spice cake mix
- 1 large can pumpkin pie mix
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1-2 C semi-sweet chocolate chips (*I really, strongly, highly recommend you go for the full two. I doubt you'll have any complaints.)
