Baking Dark Chocolate Cookies, Pop- a - Doodle, and Crocheting

 Hey all!
Hope the weekend is fun and enjoyable for you!
Today thought I would share what I was doing a few days back when it was raining cats and dogs here on the Oregon coast ( excuse the silly joke)  Any whooooo! now I sound an owl
I decided to do some baking while we were getting the 8 inches of rain and I found I had a box of dark chocolate cake mix that was for Christmas time; that I did not use so I thought make dark chocolate cookies!
I took the box and mixed one cup of butter and one egg to get the dough for cookies and I think you can still get dark cake mix in the store, this mix just happened to be for Christmas but I think there is a dark chocolate cake mix in stores all the time, that's what I am trying to say in a round about way.  Next I used some Raspberry Jello and sugar and mixed the sugar and dry jello together.  I rolled about 1 1/2 balls, then rolled them in the sugar mixture and mashed them down slightly with a fork and baked at 325 degrees for 25 minutes or until done. I used about a 1/4 cup of sugar and 2 table spoons of the jello for the mixture.  My hubby just loved the cookies.
 I just had to share a picture of Pop a Doodle on the rainy day! he was just watching me crochet away as we were watching a really good spooky movie! Don't he look all nice and warm!
This is what I was working on while watching the movie and waiting for the cookies to bake!
