I love this recipe. So why 1 star? Because several years ago the companies who all make the boxed cake mixes changed the boxes from the recipe-required 18.25 oz to 16.25 oz and those no-missing 2 oz of cake mix make a HUGE difference in the outcome of these cookies. It's turned this recipe from awesomely delicious to a thin, mucky, disaster. So unless you remember to add an extra 2 oz of flour on your own, beware this recipe. Oh, and try finding a butter recipe cake mix these days. Every single one on my store shelves is an oil recipe. I can find one mix type at ONE store here in Illinois, and I have to drive 20+ miles away to get even that. This recipe needs several things: 1. Updating for the smaller sized boxed cake mixes (to adjust all other ingredients for the smaller flour amount) 2. Directions to include adding more flour to make up for the smaller boxed mix sizes OR 3. Alternative substitutions for the cake mix if you can't find a butter recipe mix It's such a shame too because these cookies really are epic. Delicious, spicy, chocolatey... They were one of my go-to favorites each holiday. So if you can remember to adjust the flour mixture accordingly (or manage to find that 18+ oz mix somewhere) definitely make these. You won't' be worry.

I re-tested this recipe using the 15.25-ounce cake mix. The cookies turned out just fine. I think the ingredient should be written as 1 (15-.25-ounce - 18.25-ounce) cake mix.

I was trying to come up with another use for my costco-sized tub of chai and googled across this recipe! The result was delicious and simple to make. I did add a little bit of extra milk to moisten up the dough. And instead of making a glaze I rolled the dough balls in a cinnamon-sugar combo- the result was a snicker doodle-like chocolate chai delight!
