Chocolate Cake Cookies

It's summer and I have been working on things for school like crazy. For now, I've just been browsing blogs, saving some documents to print at a later time (when I actually have access to a computer), revising my Back to School Information Packet, and revising my book tub labels. I've only redone seven of them, but I have way more books than that. Plus, I'm very particular with how the pictures are set on the labels, etc. Picky, picky. I'm pretty excited about what I've found so far though and am even possibly more excited for my second year than I was for my first (gasp!).

Last night, in the midst of it all, I was craving chocolate. I am a deep lover of chocolate and there is no way I could go without it. I honestly don't know how people do. I wasn't craving just any kind of chocolate. I was craving my Chocolate Cake Cookies. These cookies are super easy to make and I can't believe I hadn't made them until last Christmas for my family. I also made them for the last day of school for my coworkers as a "thank you for a great year". I have no idea how I stumbled upon such a great, easy recipe and I have no idea where I did (some random cooking website... Possibly Delish?), but I am glad I did!

What You'll Need:
1 package Devil's Food Cake Mix
2 eggs
1/2 cup butter- softened
1 tablespoon of water
Powdered Sugar
How to:
Preheat oven to 375.
Combine cake mix, eggs, butter, and water in a medium bowl.  Stir until just blended.
Chill the dough for about ten minutes (give or take) in the freezer (I only use the freezer because I'm impatient. You could chill in the fridge for about an hour... That's what I did on Christmas...)
Scoop the dough into walnut-sized balls and roll in powdered sugar
Place about 2 inches apart on cookie sheet
Bake for 9 minutes
Take out, repeat, and enjoy!

For the record, I always sprinkle more powdered sugar on top of the cookies. I like how snowy they look when there's more. Plus, I love powdered sugar. And, I love these cookies. They taste like brownies. Yum!

This picture... I really just wanted to share what my freezer looks like. I had to take some things out so I could chill the dough... Hey, Lean Pockets were on sale at Price Chopper for 99 cents. Can't beat that.

There's more in the door of my freezer too. Hey, don't judge. I love me some sales.

  1. Ha, I love the combination of baking tips and tips for shopping sales. :) Sounds like you may be a member of the crazy couponing trend!

    P.S. Save me a cookie or two for Friday? Even though we'll probably be baking more scrumptiousness.
