Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 9x13" pan with parchment paper and set aside. Combine the cake mix, butter, eggs and vanilla in a large bowl. Stir together until combined.
Add in the chocolate chips and mix just until combined.
Scoop the dough into the prepared baking mat. Press down evenly with a piece of parchment paper, or the palm of your hand. Top with additional chocolate chips if desired. Bake for 20 minutes, or until a toothpick comes clean. You don’t want them to brown.
Allow to cool in the pan for about 15 minutes. Then remove and slice into squares. Store in a covered container for up to 3 days.
