How do you make the best Chocolate Cake Mix Cookies?
With a spatula, mix together the Devil’s food cake mix, eggs, oil, and vanilla. Now this will be a pretty stiff dough, so it is crucial that you mix it by hand as opposed to a hand mixer to avoid burning out the motor.
The plus side is that you get a little arm workout in.
While the cookies are baking, beat together the room temperature butter and cream cheese. Once it is smooth and creamy, add in your vanilla and beat for a couple seconds. Next add in the confectioner’s sugar gradually to avoid any snow storms in the kitchen.
When the cookies are cooled, dump your frosting mixture into a large resealable or piping bag and swirl it on to half of the cookies. Take the remaining cookies and place them on top of the frosted cookies.
