German Chocolate Cookie Bites!

Posted on

What could be better than a big slice of german chocolate cake?  Why a german chocolate cookie stuffed full of that yummy coconut pecan icing of course!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 box of German Chocolate cake mix
  • 1/3c. softened margarine
  • 1/2 box of cream cheese (4 oz.)
  • 1/3 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips (melted)
  • 1 egg
  • German chocolate frosting (get a tub of it –or be fancy and use my favorite recipe for it!)

DIRECTIONS:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Cream together margarine and cream cheese until smooth.
  • Add egg, stirring until smooth.
  • Blend in melted chocolate.
  • Add cake mix last and stir until combined.  Use your hands to knead mixture into a heavy cookie dough.
  • Make evenly- size small balls of dough (I use a Small Cookie Scoop) and place on cookie sheets.

  • Gently press cookies into a flattened cookie shape (rather than a ball) as they will not spread out when they bake.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 12-14 minutes.
  • Remove cookies from oven and cool completely.
  • Spread frosting between two similarly -sized cookies and chill until serving.

My thoughts:  I love how the cookie part turned out.  I was really just experimenting with using a cake mix.  I’ve used a cake mix before with my Carrot Cake Cookies– but I knew they couldn’t be made the same (oatmeal in a german chocolate cake?!).  The cookies are dense and sooo chocolatey and rich.  They scoop wonderfully and don’t stick to the cookie sheet– perfect!  Look for them again soon– I want to try my hand at some caramel cookies with caramel cake mix!!!  Enjoy!
