Imperial Stout Triple Chocolate Cookies

I love cooking and baking from scratch. Using a pile of whole, real ingredients to make something beautiful and delicious is always an accomplishment. Unfortunately, baking from scratch isn’t always possible. On a blustery Saturday I decided to forgo my bike ride to bake some cookies for my family. After deciding that the low-fill bottle of Avery Czar would taste delicious mixed with the three types of chocolate chips I found, I went on a hunt for the rest of the ingredients in my moms kitchen. I found a 10lbs bag of sugar…but no flour. No flour. How in the hell am I supposed to make cookies?!?!

Oh look, a devil’s food cake mix.

While using ingredients like this isn’t my favorite, it sure does work in a pinch. Frankly, this might be the easiest cookie recipe I have ever made.


Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Combine the following ingredients in a bowl

1 box devil’s food cake mix

1 stick butter, melted but not hot

2 eggs

1/4 C Avery Czar Imperial Stout

2C of chocolate chips and nuts of your choice (I used 1/2c dark, 1/2C milk, 1/2C white and 1/2C pecans

Spoon 1 inch balls onto a cookie sheet covered in parchment paper

Bake for 11 mins

Hint: Don’t make the cookies too big, cake cookies hold up better in smaller form
