Note: Grandma Pat always brings the boys their own individual tin of these cookies. She knows that they love them so she make them their own tin so that they won't "fight" over who ate the last one. They love these more than Toll House. It is probably because it is made by Grandma!
Grandma Pat's Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 Box yellow cake mix
1 pkg milk chocolate chips
1/2 cup oil
2 large eggs
1 cup pecans (optional)
Mix all ingredients in a large mixing bowl using a wooden spoon. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees in a preheated oven for ten-12 minutes until golden brown. Yields 42-48 cookies.

Spread 1 pkg of caramels and spread on top.
