18 1/4-ounce box chocolate cake mix
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
2 cups (12-ounce package) semisweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup chopped nuts, optional

Combine cake mix, vegetable oil and eggs in large bowl. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts, if using. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.

Bake in preheated 350-degree oven for 8 to 10 minutes or until centers are just set. Let stand for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool. Makes about 3 1/2 dozen cookies.
